Default Identifying A KO Servo?

Hi, I have a KO servo which has lost it's identifying sticker from the top.

Is there any way to tell which model it is without this?

I know it's a 7.2V, high speed, metal geared servo but that's all.

I want to get some spares for it but obviously need to know what it is.

I had an old ko fet 703 and that had a bulge next to the output spindle which housed one of the gears, I think only a few of the older, lower spec models had this detail to them if thats any help?

the quicker 1001/2 etc models didnt have it.

You could always break out the stop watch, protractor, ruler and weights. No, really, it is going to be hard to identify just by the case. Some manufacturers use the same case for multiple servos.

It is VERY fast, so 2123 sounds pretty good.

It shares gear sets with a few others etc so that should be OK.

Out of interest, what identifies it as a 2123?

Hi guys.

Having bought yet another servo from Ebay I'd like confirmation of what it is;

It has a plastic final gear on the motor and is a 3 wire (6V)
The case looks identical to the other servo I asked about above.
It definitely is not as fast



Thanks
Skiddins
