Default Futaba 9450

a simple question.
does anyone know where i can find the replacement rubber "bands"/ ring for the futaba 9450 servo?

it is the black thing that keeps the water out, for a little while

thx in advance

I don't know if the cheaper analog Futaba servos like the S3003 would also have these o rings. They are like less than USD 15 here. If they do, you could always buy them for cheap and just take the o rings out. I believe the o rings are of the same size. Just an idea. You could always use a spare servo in case of emergency.

What you could also do is to use silicone base sealant. But that is a less than elegant solution...

Else, try and get something from a hardware shop or a shop that specialises in fittings and o rings.

Thanks for your reply InitialD (it is a good cartoon by the way)

the cheaper servos usually does not have those o-rings
they are usually non-splash resistant
