Default Servo Heat Issue

I'm putting together my MBX7R right now and I have 2x Savox 2274SG servos in there. No servo horns connected.

Powered by a Flashpoint 2500 battery pack.

What I noticed is that both servos are getting SUPER hot. Like so hot, i can barely touch them.

Anyone an idea whats going on?

mlax do you have a 7.4 lipo pack and are you servos rated for high voltage. (7.4) if not that is your problem but something in your electrical making your servos over heat!

I had the same issues with savox 2274's and 1267's.. probebly you could not run this servos beacuse they will stop working due to overheat..i change to sanwa servos all issues solved.

Sanwas are top Knotch! But Proteks are awesome too, and cost a lot less + Great Customer Service from Amain

I've got a mix of Savox 2270's, 2273's and 2274's as well as Protek 150T's and 170T's. Granted Savox are noisy as all hell but I've YET to have a single one fail on me. Protek on the other hand I've sent 3 back to Amain in the last 2 months from either the jitters or just stopping working altogether. As the remaining 3 die out I'll replace them all with Savox because they're just that more reliable. I've been racing RC since the 90's, used to use strictly airtronics or Futaba depending on the radio system I was running at the time because there really weren't any other options for high end servos.

Haven't bought a Futaba or Airtronics/Sanwa in many years, no need anymore. The only good thing about a Protek servo is the awesome warranty because you'll most likely need it. It's a shame too because when they're running, they're super quiet, center well, and strong as all hell. Just don't seem to last for me. Savox aren't as refined but they're unbreakable.

Just my .02.

Nothing wrong with the Savox 2274. They were good enough for Tessmann to win a world championship with them.

Savox make a darn good servo. Been running them for years in all my RC cars and rarely have an issue. When I do have an issue, its always on the servo Ive used for years.

I've had 3 Savox go bad on me in the last 3 years. Made the switch to mks there warranty is great & you can have them serviced if there not for cheap.
