Hi guys I need to decide which servo I'll install on my 8-ightE 2.0:

-Ace DS 1015 @6.0v
-Savox SC 1267 SG @7.4v

Will the Savox one be a problem considering the slightly bigger consumption in volts???
Is it affodable in off road riding??

I wasn't implying he didn't know what he was talking about. I'm glad someone confirmed it however. I got one on the way.
Thanks.

the ace servo are great, i would go as far as saying better then the savox one you mentioned. I would get the ace 1015 no doubts. Hope this has helped you and can decide on which to further to pursue.

Yes, thanks mate, my only curiosity is to understand if the consumption between the standard 6.0v servo and the 7.4v makse any important difference in run time...

As much as I like My Hitec's, I would NEVER EVER recommend an Ace servo to anyone. They have Sub par brass gears that wont take abuse like Ti or Steel will and Overall the servo's are imo No where near the level of Hitec and Savox.

Ok, just focusing my question: Is there any important difference in run time between the standard 6.0v servo and the 7.4v???

Has anyone already tried a 7.4v servo? Will it reduce too much the run-time capacity??

I can't imagine it would affect the run time hardly

Finally I decided to try a 1267 SG Savox servo (21Kg. in 0.09 sec.) juiced by an external 10A Castle Bec....I hope it will be a tough choiche...

Mamba Max Pro...I'm almost certain that its internal Bec won't be enough for a Savox 7.4v servo + I use the external Bec also because the Spektrum Micro-receiver makes me feel like it causes some glitching to any servo I'll try....

That is what I understand as well. Was not sure if you were running a MMM . . .
