So does your seal of approval make it high end, or does your "co-signers" nod do it

High end/high price neither is high quality, high quality is just that high quality
to that manufacture their 115.00 servos is their high end offering. If you dont believe so that just another opinion to add to the long list of opinions. thanks this was fun

Over the past 3+ years I have owned a variety (over 8, after that I lost count) of Hitec servos (they all fall into your $115+ category of "high end"), not one of them have centered properly. I am sorry if my conclusion does not meet your approval, however, for my budget purposes, it isn't worth it for me to 'test' another of the same brand based on my past experiences. I'd rather learn from other's experiences and target the best known servos to find the one that is right for me.

It seems to me that the original poster was asking opinions on what servo to go with. I was hoping that they would save over $900 in trying to find the one that works for them.

and could say the exact opposite.

Over the past 8+ years I have owned a variety (over 8, after that I lost count) of Hitec servos (they all fall into your $115+ category of "high end"), all of them have centered properly. My experience.

I am not exclusive to hitec I also run JR servos, and people dont like them. But they work for me.

For real, I am trying to stay neutral go back in the post its other people bashing brands not me. I just showed that this was not so, simple and plain.

adamage "IMO, Hitek doesn't make a high-end digital servo."

adamage "High price doesn't make a servo high-end, it just makes it expensive."

Default Problem with 9550, New to Digital servos

Me and my friend just bought futaba 9550`s just for last weekend race and both of us had the same problem none of the servos centered
I`m sing 3PK FM 75 HRS and receiver R203 HF
My friend Helios Ex10 and Spektrum

We were using analog servos before

Do we need to set up the radios differently?
we race 7.2v sport packs does the voltage could hurt servo performance?

Since when is voicing experience and knowledge about a product considered bashing? I'm saying their product isn't great - I'm not personally insulting you.

dude...it wasn't "worth it" after about #3 (or #4, or #5, or #6 or...)!

personally, i've always went the fastest/strongest route, however i'll probably be equipping my next sedan with one of the low profile jobbies.
