Default Servos

Hey i was wondering what kind of stats does a good servo for 1/10th scale have. Like how fast would a good one turn and what kind of torque should it create? These are the stats of one servo i was thinking of getting... Yay or Nay?
size: 40mm*38mm*20mm
weight: 48g
speed (4.8v): 0.17sec/60degrees
speed (6.0v): 0.13sec/60degrees
stall torque(4.8v): 13kg/cm
stall torque(6.0v): 15kg/cm

Thanks Curtis

The specs you gave.

That servo has plenty of torque and the speed is good, definitely in the ball park. It could be faster but some people don't like really fast servos so it comes down to personal preference.

One thing to note about servo specs, at least the speed anyway is not all manufactures are the same. Airtronics servos for example are slower than others with the same rating, not bad servos but slower none the less.

I just went there to the web site. Very nice numbers -- I think that VDS1007 is about 126 ounce-inches and 0.07s, right -- had to calculate from their kg/cm. I usually run a KO Propo PDS-2413-ICS which seems to work well on 1-10th scale, and gives a little more room.

Hitec servos can generally be had at an affordable price... Usually pretty good bang for your buck.

Depends on your 10th scale, too... For my Clodbuster 133oz of torque was just barely above functional... And that's when it's only turning 2 of the 4 wheels

Just remember that a blinding fast transit speed means nothing if it can't move the weight of the wheels

The Hitec 985MG can probably be found for pretty cheap...
.13 second transit time
172oz (12.4kg) of torque

I just recently upgraded to a Hitec 7955TG which is overkill for most smaller 10th scale rigs... But I like it in my Clod.

138.8oz of torque, actually
Very nice little servo that one is.
