I would just go with a 7955 and call it a day. The 7955 is one of the most proven servos on the market. It will do what you need.

Don't buy the re-badged hobbico servo. It is NOT a 7955, it IS a 5955(older version). Don't bother with the 7954 it is a 7955 without the titanium gears.
Sorry to hurt you feelings but the hobbico is a now a 7955. Buddy of mine swapped lids put a 7955 lid on it, sent to hitec. It was fixed no questions asked. Also if you have a problem with a hobbico you can take it back to where you bought it with receipt and they will replace it for free if its still under its 1 yr warranty.......

I also heard the hobbico one is the same as a 7955. But I would just get the 7955. Its a awesome servo. I have been running mine almost for a year and and half now with not one issue

Until I hear from someone at Hitec that they are now 7955's to me they're 5955's. Last word I saw from someone official was that they were 5955's. Unless that changed recently they are still 5955's.

Not saying they wouldn't take care of your buddy either way, but as far as I know they are still 5955's.

after nearly 2 years of racing my hitec 5955tg finally started to act up. That thing has been so reliable and trouble free. I finally put an order in for a 7950th to replace it, its hard to go to something else after years of reliability and durability from the 5955tg. I'm hoping I will get the same usage from the 7950th.

You won't be disappointed! The 7950 is an incredible servo. Mine have been flawless. 5955 was a great servo, and the new ones are even better.

My new 7950th just came in the mail today and I can't wait to put it on, try it out and have no worries for another year or 2.
