I recently switched from running all Hitec 7955's to savox, and so far I am very impressed. If it comes down to money I would definitely say the Savox would be a good choice for you.

Haven't had any trouble at all with one yet. I haven't ran it that long, but I think there is a 1 year warrenty on them for anything happening to them.
That's actually a re-badged hitec 5955. Very good servo indeed.

What's the difference between the 7955 and the 5955. I tried to find 5955's and couldn't find them.

The 7955 replaced the 5955. They are basically the same servo, but the 7955 has the G2 circuitry with better resolution.

so i can take my hitec 7955 back to hobby town (where i got it from) and they will replace it? that would be so much easier than shipping mine to hitec....

I wonder if that's why my hobbicos seem to be a little louder then the 7955's?

I've ran several servos now, and the hobbico ones are very loud compared to any other ones I have had.

Back to the topic, I had never heard of those savox servos before, but they do seem like a really good deal. Most deals that good though seem to be trouble. Another even cheaper hobbico option would be the cs 150 http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXNRT1&P=ML
I'm not sure what rebadged servo this is, but for 40$ it would probably be a good deal.

Yes I do believe that is true.

I'm not sure either. I was told though when I bought my first cs 170 that I wouldn't need a regulator with it, but I would with the ACE servo I was using at the time. I don't see myself going lipo anytime soon anyway, so I wasn't worried about it.

I do know though that I would really like to try out one of these savox servos.

i was told that the cs-170 was a rebadged 7955tg,Same specs and same internals.I also have 2 hitec 7955tg's(newer g2 style) and so far perform very well,i have not tried lipo's on it yet,but i don't run nitro anymore so i don't have to worry about that.
