Default Which servo??

Just got a 1/10 nitro onroad and was planning on using a Futaba S9451 for steering and an S3050 for throttle brake. Good or bad idea??

i just removed a S9350 and a S3151 from my car as the current drain was to much and the failsafe came on soon....at the end of the day i couldn't run a main do to not enough battery...went to EGR-Vr 94357 Airtronic's and i'm much happy-er......both servo's are less than a month old and i'm going to sell them....

I am using Airtronics in my 1/8 scale onroad, but prefer KO for my sedan. They seem to be much smoother for 10th scale then airtronics.

Hi Guys,

I am thinking off getting Ko Propo PDS-2413 low profile Servo's for throttle and brake. Has anyone had any experience with these servo's and also know what they are like for 1/10th nitro tourer.

Thanks,

I use the 2413 in my electric touring, best servo avail. But, as I said KO no good for nitro...you can try/use if you like but.....Just look at the servos every thread has every said, almost nobody ever says oh yeah get KO over Futaba or Air......

Thanks,
PDS-2413ICS will be perfect for Touring car, it has 8.5 Kg per cm of torque which is more than enough for an 8th scale, and it has 0.10sec/60 degree in speed and it only weights 44.8 grams with metal gears it will be perfect as a throttle/brake servo.

Never had a problem using KO servos in Nitro cars, we even use it on 1/8 scale on-road cars and it is on it's 2nd year now.
