You kidding? Best servos on the market! You will not find a more solid servo anywhere. Plus Hitec's customer service is second to none. Should anything happen to one of thier servos, send it in and you will have a brand new servo on your door step within 2 weeks. Awesome servos.

I switched from jr9100s/t to hitec 7955 and 7965 for the throttle. Hitec are 10x better in my book. Selling the jr's. I can't wait for the new 7950 and 7940 to come out. Hitec does servos right.

Got 2 of them on my MBX6 and love them to death!
They(Hitec) say they can handle Lipo's without regulators and I ran mine that way a few weeks without any problems but put one on this week end and set the voltage to 6.4 volts and it was great.
You wont be sorry with these servos, super smooth, just a little noisy as with most digis!

I am a believer now to. I run a pair of 7955's in both truck and buggy with a 2 cell lipo unregulated. I am very happy with this setup. I was running futaba servos which are still great but the sheer power and durability of the 7955 along with excellent customer service is second to none.
