Hitec servos any good?
 
Hey guys, in the market for a good servo for once. lol I was checking out the Hitec HS-7940TH Ti gears, digital high speed servo. I've been wanting a good one for years and I wondered what folks think of Hitec? I will be racing a Xray 008.

they'll work kinda if your on a tight budget.....what servos are the guys you race with using?

are 'they' beating you with it? if so, is it due to better equipment or pure driving skill?

A well set-up car WILL most likely be easier to drive.......

$149.99????

they must have gotten better at centering up than they used to......
or are they just offsetting the cost of employee health care?

how does that compare to a comparable JR,Fut,Sanwa etc. top end servo $ ?

My HB7966 Coreless Servo from Hitec is just awsome, ive had it a year now, very fast, very realiable (touches wood).

Spec are something like 0.008 secs to 60 degree of turn, with plenty of torque, i actually borrowed a futaba 9550 before hand to try and my hitec felt smoother.....

I was looking at the Hitech servo's for running my 733 Serpent. I had run the top end hitech servo's in other onroad cars and they were "alright". I ended up going with the JRZ9100S Digital Ultra Speed. Night and day, super fast with plenty of power. $139 at kamikaze

We've run HiTec servos forever with little to no problems. Everything from super high torque 333 in oz to super fast 0.08 transit time. I would have to say for the value they are great and their customer service cant be beat.

I just want a good servo but...
 
what is considered a quality brand of servo then? KO? Are there any other high quality brand names? One with titanium gears? My old KO weights a ton. I'm looking for a low profile, fast, high torque, digital, light servo with high quality.

robk 09-04-2009 04:42 PM

KO, Futaba, JR are the big names.

heretic 09-04-2009 05:38 PM

to quote someone from petitrc i'll just say : "keeping away fron hitec is a guarantee of success". the centering is probably the worst problem i met with ALL my hitec servos

my favourite by decreasing order : KO,futaba,sanwa/airtronics

RCknight 09-04-2009 05:44 PM

What model is good for touring?
 
What's the best of KO and Futaba?

KO2413 and Futaba BLS551 both low profile, metal gear fast servos.

RCknight 09-05-2009 03:41 AM

Well, sucks to hear that Hitec don't center well.
 
I have a KO, but I really wanted to try something different. The titanium gears make sense for weight reduction.

Guys a lot of people don't know this but Team Orion and Sanwa both have low profile digital servos that are good.

Here are the specs on the Orion. Best of all, it can be had for just over $80!
