i chose HITEC...simply because IF a servo fails they allow hobby shops to simply swap it with a new 1 for free...as long as you have a reciept and it hasnt been 2 years....i went through 4 servos in a month earlier this year cause my throttle linkage was not correct aswell as my brakes were giving tooo much brake....all replaced for free....never even had to deal with the customer service....i like Hitec

The KO RSX line of servos is the best I have ever seen. They are the smoothest and most responsive ever. I have nothing but good stuff to say about hitec, they have treated me well for the last 18 months. I am trying some savox HV's now so time will tell. I dont like JR, but thats my opinion and you know what they say about opinions....

I'm going with Savox, good performance at a resonable price. Nothing against any of the others as most are very good but I have too look for value and if I can pay less and still get a quality product I will try it. Had good luck with the Ace/ Associated 1015's also and are my spares.

I like the hitec 7955tg servos. I havent had any problem with them on my losi 8ights. Im looking forward on trying out the Savox servos this season and see how they are.

Savox servos for me... Decent price with great performance... I run the hv 1268 In a truggy and love them... I can't wait till the 1270 line hits the u.s.

Guys sorry to hijack a forum but is a servo a servo? I was looking at the hitec ones but dont know which one to buy. I have bought a secon hand buggy with a M11 controller. What would you recommend in servos? How do I know which one fits a buggy? I was hoping to pay about $50 each.

I love Hitec servos. They never once have let me down. So that's who I voted for. I am trying a Savox servo at the moment, and so far it has worked great.

I have voted Savox but I am using the Align DS620 servo's because they are Savox made but only 10 euro cheaper to get.

I love to get the Futaba BL servo's but the price and specs does keep me waiting. I hope to see a fast Asian servo with a brushless motor and a magnetic induction potmeter which I think must have a long life.

Default servos

in the past i was a hitec die hard guy. been running savox now for a better price and just love how the hv servos run. no doubt the 7955 hitecs are awsome but in this hobby save money where ever you can.
