Default Steering servo upgrade... advice needed

Which one should I get for my Ofna MBX Ultra? Are different brand servos compatible with my Airtronics reciever,or are the plugs different? Thanks in advance

Get an Airtronics 94358, or if you dont want to spend 100 bucks on a servo, get a JR Z590.

Are all of the connectors the same or will I need an adapter?

The older Airtronics servos had different connectors (the wires were arranged differently) but that only takes about 30 seconds to fix. I use old 358's all the time in my Jammin CRT.

There isn't a servo available in the US today that you'll have too much trouble using with your radio setup.

Watch out for Multiplex stuff though......

Actually I would suggest the Z650 for under $100... it has alot more torque and it's not much slower.....and it's only $10 more.....

Also take a look at Bluebird servos they are supposed to be pretty good and extremely cheap...


JR uses the same connectors as Hitec.....

The Hitec hsmg5925 is a really fast servo 0.08 @ 6v with pleanty of torque, they are great servo's for 89 bucks.It also has a lifetime warrenty with it, which is my favorite part.
