Mike F- The standard Hitec connector is the same as the Airtronics "Z" so unless it is wired for old style connector it will just plug right in.

I don't know if you know anything about Airtronics servos, but could you take a look @ http://www.rctech.net/forum/showthre...threadid=10694 ?

Thanks.

JR 550 close to the same # only no center problems.The hi tech servos are the only servos I have ever had any problems with.My 605 is only 3 weeks old and never did center the same way twice.I was using it in a yokomo mr-4 tc.What should I do with it?Send it back,trash it,with the # it should work fine for a tc.

If you are using the Yokomo horn for the Hitec servo then you will have centering problems since it does not fit tight enough. Try the Hitec horn.

By tight enought you mean it has to much play in the mesh and is striping?Question,which servo would you recommend(digital)for a RC-10GT,steering & throttle.

Yes, the size of the hole is to big so it has slop in it which would affect the centering tremendously. I would use the 5945MG for steering and the 525BB for throttle in the GT. You don't need a digital servo for throttle. The 525BB is the perfect throttle servo for 1/10th cars and trucks. The best part is that it only costs about $25-$30.

Im new to this forum but I have been around RC for quite a while. I use all Hitec Servos and Radio's and always have for the most part. I have had a small problem with the centering as well on the non digital servos but like the man said, for the price, the performance is unbelievable. I ran a Futaba 9402 for a while in the steering of a Supermaxx I had and it was an absolutely awesome servo but I also paid 100 bucks for it. Honestly I cant complain about a 605 for 30 bucks. I run one in throttle and steering on all my Losi trucks I race. I am about to upgrade to the 5925 for steering for the higher transit speed and better center but for someone who does not want to sink a fortune into a decent servo, nothing will match a 605 or 625.

I've got a digital 925 which I bought a little over a year ago. I ran it for about 2 months racing weekly, and while it never centered perfectly it slowly got worse. It eventually got to the point where it could simply not be driven in a touring car. It has since sat in my pitbox.

I am wondering if that would be covered on warranty? The gears have developed so much slop that it is nearly impossible to use.

Thanks.

While I have seen some of the centering issues with the 605, I have a more substatial problem with mine. My 605 seems to oscillate for a second after abrupt steering inputs. Not just a single correction or for a fraction of a second, but a large number of vibrations. Almost like a radio 'glitch' can look like, only this seems to be an issue with the servo. I run an M8 radio with Airtronics recievers, and I have tried replacing the reciever, crystals, and even tried a different transmitter with no changes. Suprisingly, the condition is much less severe when I attempt to use my ancient Airtronics CS2P transmitter. If I replace the 605 with another servo, the problem dissappears and the new servo operates smoothly without any vibrations..

Any ideas on the source of the problem??

Is this a MG servo?

The servo is an HS-605BB with original gears. The oscillations only occur at the end of a quick steering input, whether moving back to center or a quick left/right movement. I do not get the same glitch on the esc when using the same radio system.
