What is the difference of servo horn and servo saver?

Also I found that the double tape included in the kit is super strong, way stronger than green 3M double tape.

Jimmy you are so helpful. Hey, I contacted the hobby shop that disrtibutes the Orca speedcontroller, but they where out of the TC version. He said that they wouldn't have them until Nov. Maybe it will help me find that hidden hp that I'm looking for.

Nice, lemme know when you get one. I'll help ya set it up. You should also get a motor fan as well. If you are getting the ORCA from Elwyn, ask him for a motor fan as well.

I'm also waiting for the TC spec, will compare with Vortex as most driver in Jakarta are using Vortex including my self.

Oh, I thought so. Might change it back to servo horn then. Haven't finish my BD5 but so far the chassis is not flat on glass. There is a bit of movement left and right the chassis. Any idea what went wrong?
