Can't we just all get along? LOL!!!

With that being said, I am partial to Hitec servos myself. But I came across a great deal on a JR 8711 for my daughters 8T 2.0
WOW it is a great servo. I can't believe no one has said anything about one of these......

8711 was ok when it first came out a few years ago... The case is not durable enough for the 400oz it produces. I have 2 that still work but are sloppy.


Now for Hitec, I have broken every metal output gear any servo has to offer. The list is long. I have brought 7950s when they came out and they have performed perfectly time and time again.

Now I have broken a screw off in the Ti output gear of my 7950 servo and was getting upset that I could not buy a new, called up hitec and they sent me the gear,,, excellent service.....

It'll wear out like every JR does. Sloppy gears, Sloppy case, Typical "JR shimmy", etc... They're good performing servos, but they don't last. Hitec's will beat their performance and last 5x as long.

The only JR I really liked was the DS8717 for throttle. I think the specs are .06s w/ 200oz of torque. It's a really nice servo for throttle duties.

Also making BS statement's like "you dont need titanuim gears thats a butch of bs ive never striped any steel gears in a servo just plastic." is Ignorant as you haven't been around long enough to even know HOW durable Hitec gear's are.....the Ti's have been around for quite some time and the Fact of the matter is that Hitec Doesn't even Sell the Main gear's as spares as they KNOW they Dont fail.


Please take a Step back and think twice before posting.
Not sue why you guys are getting on this guy? His comment about the need for TI gears I think is spot on. And by the way I have been in this hobby a very long time, racing RC cars sense 1987, went to the Worlds in 1989, oops just gave my age away, and have been flying giant scale for almost as long. Most manufacturers have a gear in there gear train that will fail, as the steel / TI gears normally will not fail. This is so other more expensive parts of the servo, like the motor do not fail. Is it bad to have the TI gears, not at all, is it needed, no, especially for the concerns you guys have brought up. Other than gears wearing out and getting sloop in them, the JR line of servo's had been really bad in the giant scale planes with this, this is where maybe the Hitec has a leg up on the rest very little sloop in the gear train. Now about his setup info have no idea, but what does that have to do with this issue.

Well have a great day all.

Point is that he makes a lot of comments in many threads, not having a clue what he's talking about. That's all. In this particular situation he made a comment that obviously went against everything else said prior in this thread. Not a problem if you knew what you were talking about, but he doesn't. His beloved 7954 is only a downgraded 7955. For essentially the same price you can have your Ti gears in a servo otherwise identical. Maybe it is true that you don't need Ti gears, but I would never recommend not buying the best servo you can for the money. If we're talking 7954 money, the 7955 is a a better servo for the same price. Comments like "titanium gears are BS" isn't gonna make you any friends when everyone had already recommended a Ti gear servo.

That's my take on things.

The POINT I'm trying to make is that you can buy a 7955 for essentially the SAME price as your 7954! Why buy the downgraded version when you can have the real thing for the same price? Now that's managing your funds wisely.

I got one for you guys.

What's the general mounting proceedure for you guys running these monster digi's? I set my new 7950 up with grommets using large head washers snugged up but man, that servo can torque the entire mount....


Anyone running solid mounted/no grommets? Sure way to kill a servo?
