Default servo help!!!!

Ok this is the deal I spoke to a tech at lrp/Asscioated and told him i had glitching problems between the ESC and my stearing servo. I have a xray evo 2 quantom competition 2 and a hitec ultra speed hs-925mg servo. He said that the esc 's programing is too complexed for the servo..... Weather he is pulling my leg I cant tell you. But I will say when I switch the servo to a crap plastic one the problem goes away..... has anyone else had this problem? are hitch servo's crap? and which high speed servo's Do you recomend ? Keep in mind I want to stay out of the digital stage , or should I...... please give me ya thoughts and what combo's you preferr..... THANKS!!!!

I use novak speedos gt7's. I tried a couple of hitech servos in my tc3 and my 12th scale and both had glitching problems. I never figured out what the problem is I just switched servos and the problem has never returned.

I had a problem with my Airtronics digital causing a glitch in my FTTC3. I use a Novak speedo with Airtronics radio gear. Switched to an analog Airtronics servo, and no more glitch. I sent the servo in to have it checked, and they replaced a pot but also said it worked fine. I was also told to call them and they would tell my why sometimes digital servos can cause glitches. I tried once, but they close early.

Bottom line is there might be some truth to what they are telling you. I have a 5925 and I have not had glitching probs with it as of yet.

If you want analog, then get an airtronics 94357 or a used 94257. Both are lightning fast, and plenty strong enough to handle anything.

Personally, I have had great success with my KO PDS 2123. But as long as you stay with good brands like Airtronics, KO Propo, Futaba etc., I dont think it can go really wrong.

Once I had a similar problem with a not so well-known servo - the LHS turned out with great service, and took the servo back and sold me a KO, where he only charged me for the difference between these two servos. I also got 10% discount on the KO. Bottum line: In your case, I would definately use an LHS instead of an on-line shop.

I have been using a LRP Comp for a couple years now with Hitec servos..

HS-5925
HS-5945
HS-925
HS-245
HS-5245
with no issues.....

However, I have seen a few guy have problems with the BEC circuit of the LRP Comp.(several brands of servos)

There have been several of the local guys have issues with PT's counting & the LRP Comp.

They added a CAP to the Rx and it helped..(stutter stopper)

Not saying this is your issue 100%, but just a thought......
