Default Servo

Would anyone please recommend a servo that is at least .20seconds and at least 50oz that is possibly under 70 dollars? If there are any stores in hong kong, can anyone tell me sicne i'm going there pretty soon? Thanks.

For around USD70 in HK you can get the top of the range servo, something like the KO 2143 0.08s lots of torque....KO 2123 0.06s.....Sanwa WR 0.07s (or whatever the latest one is.....Futaba 9450 0.09s.......

Try any RC shop around the Mong Kok area....do a search of the forum....there are many references......

Do you think any of those hobby shops have Hitec servos since i like them a lot and are pretty cheap?

though i think hitec is a good buy, i'd surely pick up a ko, or sanwa for those prices. just an opinion. i run a futaba 9450, and 9550 only because i got them for a good price. if i could've gone with ko or air, i think i would. have.

Harmony Models on Kwong Wah st will have Hitec.....I agree with Seaball....you will be getting a significant saving over US prices so why not take advantage and go with KO, Sanwa or Futaba.....Hitec is not very popular in HK.

One interesting thing a friend told me. On the Sanwa servo (WR) it is a pain to replace the wires (should they get damaged)....the wires are split off onto a second PCB....on the KO and Futaba I know it can be done quite easily by anyone who is competent with a soldering iron.
