right now I am in love with my Savox servos...I have ran them all with good luck but for the money and the specs the 1268 is by far the best bang out right now!

ACE gets my vote for now, been flawless for 2 years and counting.... Cant vote for Hitec if only 1 servo is any good (7955) a friend tried some 7954HV servos in his Losi 8T, and 2 have since let go, in about 8 hours use total, no doubt Hitec will look after him, but, stops me from wanting to try them.

Heard great things about Savox, and was gonna try them, till I got handed a couple HV Brushless servos to try in my truggy, and so far so good, very precice and quiet and fast and strong......

A new asian brushless HV servo, didn't someone ask about that previously?

All Hi-Tec servo's are great. The 7955 is just the newer better model but i ran the older 5955's and they were awesome as well.
JR has excellent customer service but thats because they need it. I swapped so many servo's with them that i learned to save my time by sticking with Hi-Tec.

I voted Airtronics and have been using 94359z and 94358 not long after the original MGT .21 came out.
I have used them in my MGT(single servo and duel servo, duel tank set up), Sportwerks Turmoil, TTR ST1 pro, RC8 rtr, RC8T FT, Caster ZX1, ZX1.5, and Caster EX 1.5 and currently have them in my SC8.

I am using ACE DS1015 in my RC8T FT atm.

seriously, HITEC!!! 'nuff said , its that simple


use the 7955tg and you will have a solid servo program , if anything should ever happen (usually from improperly adjusted endpoints) replacement is quick and painless

+1 Hitec has WAYYYY more than one great servo. In-fact all of the following have been great to me over the years. 5997(and other 599X series), 5955, 7955, 7940, 7945, 7950. All of those are/were awesome servos. Certainly the 79XX series are the top of the line as they should be. There's not a servo on the planet that compares to the 7950 IMO. Pretty much a no-brainer of a question. Hitec and be done.

Seeing two Hitecs let go in 8 hours.......not cutting it for me. I've read for years that all you guys say they are the best, but my evidence suggests otherwise. One i could live with, maybe a bad servo, but to follow up with another one identical, not good.

Each to their own, but I wont be rushing out to get any new Hitecs, especially with other options now available at great prices (read Savox, Bluebird etc)

I guess they just don't know any better..
But seriously hitec is JUNK..look at what the helicopter guys use..and just so you guys know Align is made by Savox..hitec has way to many failures for me..but hey to each their own..nothing any of you hitec fanboys say will ever change my mind about hitec, they have let me down in some very big races..its just an opinion..so don't get your undies in a bunch..
