I have to agree with the 645/625 servos not being good for throttle between me and my buddy we have had 5 of them go bad and always the same thing something fell off the bottom circuit board. Of course the initial purchase was only one and they kept fixing them but its a pain after a while. I've been using my back up JR650 in throttle for the last two seasons and it never fails.

You know....I've never heard of circuit boards or circuit board components falling off of either Airtronics or KO Propo servos.

I'm not sayin....I'm just sayin.

Thanks for all the information. I think I will keep the Hitec in its packaging & settle for either an Ace (which I have easy access to & costs me about USD85 a pop - I have at least 8 or 9 of these performing steering duties & love them all) or a Futaba.

ace are great servos I run a 1015 on the steering of my 8ight but I run a futaba s9451 on the throttle it has more than enough torque and is quick as hell it also seems to use alot less power than the ace on the throttle.

as for batteries lasting a long main with digital servo's I use an ace 1015 on steering futaba 9451 on throttle and a personal transponder using 1200's I have done sereral 1hour mains and still have had about 150 to 250 milliamps left from a fully charged battery so i would pick digital over analog any day of the week
