That...will break your wrist if you tried to hold it.

I know there's more powerful servos out there, but in larger "robotic" size. Haven't seen anything like that in an R/C-sized case

And just as I started thinking "what could you possibly do with a 480 ounce servo?", Crawler posts.

You guys are nuts

That servo is indeed strong!!! At 0.12 sec transit time, it's mighty fast for that kind of torque...

Hitec came out with an ultra torque servo a year ago with their HSR-5990TG, which was 400+ oz/in at 7.2V in a standard servo package.

Those things are probably the best bang for you buck. I loved that servo so much I bought 18 of them (yes 18). You guessed it, it was for robotics.

If you any of you guys are really into robotics, look into Robotis' line of robot servos, they are not encased inside the standard servo casing as OTE has mentioned, but they pack a wallop. Their latest monster servo is the RX-28, which packs a 2500+ oz/in of torque at 12V.

When you try to do a 18-servo humanoid with it, the total sum after you buy the brackets, batteries, servos, microcontroller, and other accessories, you can buy a used car (real car you drive to work with) with it!!!

Some of these robot nuts have spent enough money on a single bot to buy a nice NEW car...

NUTS! hehehe

I assume that it would be used in truggies and monster trucks. I say this because the strength isn't needed to actually turn the mechanical parts, but the high strength makes it less pron to strip gears. On some kits, the servo saver doesn't always work. It runs on 2S Lipo, so that may explain the hi-torque and 0.12s speed. I would only use this servo as steering, it should make any huge truck turn rather well with no delay in response. I'm not sure if it is worth $200

JR has always made exceptional servos. The Ultra speed is ideally for Heli's
but im sure it would be nice in any R/C car as it is still really strong in torque.

I might just hook one of these up to the front of my jeep and use it as a winch.

i just saw the hv servos in a guys baja SS two days ago. he had a servo plate to run a standard servo instead of 1/4 for steering. geese those things are nuts. He was running the full 7.4v too! the thing wanted to leap off the counter when you turned the wheel
