Either go 358 all around or use a 357 for throttle. Plenty fast and strong.

Man tower is smoking crack with that price my lhs has the 359 in stock for $99.99 and the futaba which tower list for 99.99 is 129.99 at my lhs. Little toy pricing is all over the board that is for sure.

Anyways I would recomend using the same servo for steering and the same for throttle and then purchase one spare and you are good to go if you have any failures you will have a good spare.

Then 359 is more than fast enough. Remeber that you can plug you battery into the 3rd channel and you will get full battery voltage, if you use the battery spot on the receiver it will limit voltage to 5 volts. More voltage is better because it will reduce the amperage and the amp draw is what causes more heat. So basically your servos will be faster,stronger and last longer, can't really ask for more than that. If you are worried about where to plug your personel transponder in you can plug that into the battery port on the receiver.

are you sure that the reciever limits voltage to 5 volts ive never heard that before but i guess its possible

and in that tower add it doesnt mention the servo being digital

does airtronics have a website that we could get the info from the horses mouth

i am going to have to check that reciever voltage thing the next time i can get a volt meter and my reciever in the same place at the same time

thanks for the link and i like your signature also speedydave

it seems the 359z isnt digital so the only difference betweeen the 358 and 359 is the aluminum heatsink case

their digital servo specs didnt look too impressive but i would be willing to bet that eventually they will come out with some real killers

i think im going to get a 358 for my buggy use it for steering and use the 357 for throttle

maybe after i send my hitecs in for warranty repair i can put them on ebay and sell them for enough to get some real servos

The 359 is an analog servo. Just because it buzzes doesn't mean it's digital. All servos buzz.

Seems the 359 is just 358+heatsink then. Supposedly gives it a longer lifespan because the internals are abused less by heat. Supposedly.
I think, according to the specs, the 359 is like a 357+heatsink. That heatsink will also let heat in if the plate it's mounted to is hot. Good thing this is an offroad forum and offroad cars can get away with it, I know the electric onroad chassis plates get really really hot from the ground when it's 160+ and the batteries are stressed. I would not use a 359 in that situation.

edit: What's really odd is that I made a "careful study" of the '359 specs and I'd swear they were once the same as a '357, now they're the same as a '358. It was also claimed that the gear train was ALL metal. They now have a plastic gear inside. Anybody ever seen that?

I thought the 359 was supposed to have the same specs as a 358(200 oz/in, .10 sec.), and all metal gears, which is partly why it has an aluminum case(the all metal gears heat up more than with a plastic gear in there), plus the aluminum case. It has a plastic gear now? Lame.

First of all Look up the 359 on the sanwa site it clearly lists it as a digital. The airtronics site is crapy and rarely updated infact most of the specs on their are completely different then on the sanwa site.
