Default futaba s9950...

...is the only good one that i know of. i have been using it for about 8 months now. flawless. it is similar to their top of the line digital s9450, differing in torque value from 110 down to 80 ish. i find that it is still plenty strong for electric sedan racing.

oh, to answer your question, they are servos that have a reduced length from front to back. as in, the front of the servo uses the same housing as a standard, but the body is not very deep. i believe they were created for use in planes, specifically the wings where space is limited.

anyone - please comment on other brands that my be applicable for onroad situations.

i love my 9550 and will be getting another sometime in the future. not only is it smaller, but it's about 10g lighter than it's full size counterpart.

lata.

Doesn't look like you'll be getting a new servo any time soon, Futaba stuff holds up!

The 9402 is definately still a great servo, but the digital stuff is awesome...

I fried my MC800C
can't really blame Futaba...since it's basically LRP.

I do have several S9550 in my cars... Simply the Best.!!!

Wow, nice but pricy...110 bucks. I bet it would work great in my 705 for my steering.

um yeah.

yo check with Diva or Smash123 on rctech. one or both of them should be able to get you a 9550 for about 85 shipped. there's someone else as well who regularly posts futaba radio gear NIB for a better price than we can get in the states. i've got to get another 9550 soon, so let me know what you find out.
