True, but the original question was asking about Futaba servos not Ace.

I personally use the 9451 for throttle and on occassion used them for steering ,but they just don't hold up . Best steering servo I have used to date is the Hitec 5995 robot servo on a 7.4 volt lipo reciever pack ! totally ballistic and incrediblely rugged . The 5965 is the exact same servo just uses a metal lower case , it's heavier too.

True, but the problem with Hitec is that you have to keep sending them back all too often. For the same money I would buy Futaba or Airtronics any day.

I used to believe the same but after sending back the same servo three times, another one twice, and these were their digital ones not to mention the 645 that had to go back several times. I've had the best results with Futaba, racing the same ones for over three years and it's still as strong as the day I bought it. Now I use Futaba digitals in all my racers, buggy, truggy and ST except for two JR servos.

I wouldnt waste my money and get more value for less $$ spent with the Ace servos.
At national level there has been more guys changing over to Ace than any other brand and most that are not using Ace are sponsored by other brands so dont have a choice.
