Default Searching for a low profile KO servo...any recommendations?

I want one with a 100 or more oz. torque and the fastest transit speed.
IS the PDS-2413 any good or is there something better. Price is not problem. Thanks.

That is the only Low profile servo KO has----or will have. Its not out yet. Should be the end of the month I think. It will be worth the weight. The other manufactures low profiles are not as fast and dont have any where near the torque.

Being an ICS server and $130+ USD, I'd say it will be mg, coreless, digital.

It's the -one- I've been waiting for!

0.10 and 8.5kg.

Thats a little disapointing, i would have thought it would have been similar speed to their other servos. Seems like no need to upgrade from the futaba 9550 with a speed of 0.11

I must say..... Really doesn't WOWs me....

Think I'll save the money and just get another 9550 servo,but if the price of the new servo is roughtly the same price,I might just go with the KO.

although the Ko Propo servo is only .01 faster.. it does have more torque. (118 vs 83) 35oz more than the 9550 it is priced higher because its an ICS servo.

Actual street price won't be available until it hits the streets.

I've seen KO servos (even ICS servos) selling at basically the same prices as any digital servo.

What seems to cost the premium (as with most other brands) is when you start adding aluminum heatsink cases and additional metal gears (replacing plastic 'sacrificial' primary gear)

dont let the numbers fool you, i run a KO949 in oval pan car and have tried the Fut 9650, the Fut 9550 and the JR3421. The KO seems to center up better and I have to use less dual rate then all those others mentioned.

I have been migrating over to KO recently, and all I can say is WOW. I used to use Futaba, then JR. I love the current KO stuff. You absolutely get what you pay for. Also, the computer interface is so much more advanced than anything else.

I've used 'most' brands of radio/servo... and this/last year have been converting to KO for my radio's, servo's and receivers (when not running DSM)..

the KO stuff is just ultra quality, and ultra reliable.. the computer/handheld programmable options dont interest me that much, but I just love the reliability.

I bought a Helios and loved it so much I grabbed a Mars R, then a Precious.. and if I find any other KO radio gear at a good price I'll grab it... it's almost a fetish, a collection, who knows. it's fantastic. I've not yet tried their ESC's... running brushless mainly at the moment anyway..

I'll be buying the new low profile servo for sure, really eager for it's release.
