Default Futaba 9352 servo

Have tried asking in the radio section, but the silence was deafening.

Has anyone used these in there buggys for steering and throttle?
The specs look great, reasonably well priced and made by Futaba.

Any comments on these?

Good for steering but overkill for throttle.

$150 for 272oz/in seems about average. Does it have to be HV?

I'd go Hitec for $90.

Overkill torque wise for throttle, but the speed on lipo is impressive at 0.06 was my thoughts.

I am after HV for a change, have had great success with Savox non HV, but looking to step up to the HV servos, and tower has good coupon deals for those of us overseas.

Also, can anyone tell me the benefit of runnning a metal top case like these ones: http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXBJCP&P=ML

From what I can tell, the specs are identical, exept you are paying $80 extra per servo for a metal top case.

Less chance of breaking an ear off the case, and they'll probably run a tick cooler. Though, not worth the extra cost, and they are slightly heavier.

The only downside to the 7955 is that it one of the slowest servos on the market, and truth be told, you don't need that much torque.

Don't buy all the specs. They're just made up #'s to sell servos. Half of those fast servos are fairly slow under load. Or speedy little grenades like the Savox stuff.

And the 7955 is plenty fast on 8.4v. .14 IIRC.
