Need Advice...

Hi Hitec Peeps...

I have in my possession a JR R-1 PCM radio, and I require two servos... so im looking into getting Hitec servos... now i dont want to spend too much on the servos either... so I was wandering what would be good for steering and throttle servos? I'm driving an MTX-3 1/10 Scale Nitro...

Any suggestions? Not sure about digital servos... does this mean i will need to get a higher mAH receiver battery? and have to keep charging between heats...

But anyway, i wasn't quite sure if a 625 or even a 525 will do the job or not, cheers!

If you can, digital are the best.
They do use a little more power.


The HS-525 would be great for throttle.
HS-645 or HS-625 for steering....

The 525 is the best throttle servo on the planet! I have never had one fail in 6 years. It is faster than the 625 by a hair but has better resolution due to the 5-pole motor.

Yes you will be fine. If you find that the 645 is a tad slow for your steering tastes, swap the two around. TTYL.

625 @ 6V = 0.17sec

645 @ 6V = 0.20sec


is there much of a difference between 0.17 to 0.20 in real time and senses?

I can feel the difference. Remember those figures are for 1/2 a rotation of the servo(60 deg) so if you were to go through a chicane it would take the 645 longer to go from lock to lock. Try them out, you may be suprised. TTYL.
