Default IS This servo any good

I was looking for a low budget high torque servo and found this:

My steering is whack so this has double the torque of my previous servo so is this any good?

If this is for your HPI RS4-3, you might be happier with the Hitec 625MG. I've never used Hobbico nor would I buy one. I think the Hitec is a great "budget" servo. If you really need more torque, the 645MG has more torque but less speed for the same price.

Smoke21;

The Hitec 600 series servos are indeed a bargan for the performance vs price (as my good buddy Rod B suggests).

Some people though (like myself) have had frequent problems with theirs, so MY recommendation is to also check out servos from the other major manufacturers.

I would stay away from the off brand (cheepo) servos. They work fine in Airplanes, but Cars are harder on them and they will fail prematurely (trust me).

I've never had a problem wiht Hitec servos, although I won't buy any of their receivers again. They are generally in the same price range as the off brand but last longer and the trade off [speed v torque] isn't bad.

These are both great quality, and just as cheap.
