At the track I have seen just about every brand of servo fail. You just see much fewer hitecs fail compared to the other guys. Since I switched to hitec no issues here. The hv servos do seem to draw more juice from the battery. I have a buddy that uses 7955's and I use the hv 7950/7940 combo, we both use the losi lipo battery for the receiver. On race day with the same time on the track my receiver pack takes 15-20% more mah. So I think the hv sevos take more juice to run. The futaba bls servos fall into this high drain category too.

You guys need to remember that there are children reading this stuff.

That kind of language is totally un-called for.

OK, Futabe BLS152 is fitted for steering and sounding mean to say the least.

I cant see how it drives yet as i am in the middle of rebuilding my car for the NSW state titles but as soon as it is running i will do a write up on it

I did have to file out the carbon fibre tray a little to get it to fit in.. Once fitted it looks very tough with its slight over size construction

This is one serious servo.. I love overkill

Yes you can use this servo. I would not but you can, but any servo that say "Very high current drain is normal" is not what i want. Its made for air craft cause they can use a bigger battery...

I love how people claim to be sticking up for kids...hahahaha Like kids dont swear or use bad language. Bunch of cry babies. You show me a track that have racers that dont swear..........waaaaaaa I cant believe people can get soooooooooooo but hurt over a swear word.....
I'm not sponsored so it does not matter what I put here.
