Hitec makes great servo's. They had a problem will their digital servo's, but all of their new stuff is on new software and they work great. The shop that I work for sell's allmost all Hitec servo's just because they will warrenty just about all servo's for us NQA. But because of all of the new programming we have not sent in a servo for a long time. They also will still upgrade all older servo's to new programming free of charge. The 5925 with .08 sec is one of the fastest servo's out there and it is only $89.99.

Default GET AN AIR OR JR!!!

althought the colors are different the JR servos plug right in and are GREAT servos and any digital JR will work with that radio. I personally don't buy the junk about the Air servos going bad... I've been running 257's and 258's for years and don't have problems like that... maybe one in about 4 years... that aint too bad. and they will break the servo arm before you hurt the gears. Just my opinion.

Default Servos for sale!

Got your attention!

Once you drive with a Digital servo you will never go back.
1/10 scale go for High Speed, .10 @ 60 or faster.

1/8 scale buggy/truck go for High Torque 90+ oz/in torque.
1/8 scale on-road High speed is better, .13 @ 60 or faster.

With a Digital High Speed servo used on a on-road car. You can turn the wheel at the very last second before entering a corner instead of 2 feet before.

With a Digital High Torque servo, The wheels on your Buggy/truck will go and stay EXACTLY where you tell them to.

It really is a tremendous difference when compared to "Standard" type servos.

Buy what ever brand you like best, they're ALL good. If your worried, get one with good warranty.

Default Servo seperation

asd;

MOST servo manufacturers sell different ones for different brands of receivers (plugs). Look on-line for ESC manufacturers that have a chart on plug and wiring for the different receivers.

Default Good Choice

I have a 5925 on my Electric car and it works great. Comes with a 2 year warranty and 2 different plug configurations.

Well......I guess those are okay if you don't mind damaging it, sending it in...waiting..... For me , Futaba and KO digital servos are the best.

Hitec digitals suck. I had problems with them earlier this year and I too had heard the fixed their problems so I tried another one a few weeks ago since you can't beat the price. Sure enough it was crapped out of the box. Hitec representative told me to check my battery connections but I put a ko digital in the same car it worked fine. I will never buy another hitec unless it's for a play-around in the garage micro or something.

ko digitals I've had 4 now and no problems out of any of them. The 2123 7.2V is actually TOO fast for me.

The airtronics crap out too often. I know people that run futaba digitals with good results. The JR's are good but the 8450 the gears will go out.

ko or futaba only for me from now on.

What are the 6 volt specs on the KO-2123? It's an FET servo right?
