Default Professional Quality Servos

I want to get a couple of high end servos for my NT1...

I was thinking either hitec or futaba...

IMO the Hitec servos are too noisy and do not center as well as Futaba. Use a Futaba brushless servos as they are built to withstand the severe steering needs in 1/8 onroad and 1/10 4wd. Been a Futaba user all my life and never had a servos fail on me. You might want to consider servo units from Sanwa/Airtronics though they are a bit pricey but otherwise very good servos. check out futaba-rc.com for more details on the servo range

i would suggest the new Spektrum servos they are very easy on the pocket and super reliable and plus the supoort and warranty is outstanding,ive been using them for over a year on my 1/8 with no issues,also the specs on these servos are unmatched,check out the ( 6030 / 6040 ).

I have been using a JR 9100s for my steering and a Hitec 7965mg for my throttle. I have been using this combo since last year with great success. But I don't think you can go wrong with any of the ones listed above these are the only brands of servos I have ever used and they have not let me down.

Hope this helps,

JR servos like the 9100 are at the moment the fastest for their torque. Never failed me. They are however just a hair width bigger than a standard servo so check if you have the room for it first.

Both are excellent choices however my personal fav is the futaba. If you are budget minded you might want to take a look at the savox line of servos.

This is what I run, I've never had any problems with them. I run them on both of my cars.

I like the Futaba brushless (451) on the steering of my 8th scale on-road.
Had the BLS 452 on the throttle, but changed to 9452. The reason for that is that the BLS servos are hard to turn without power. On the 8th scale car we usually run a little rubber band around the carb, so if we have power failure the throttle auto-closes. This works extremely well with the 9452. With the BLS 452 I need 5 rubber bands to close the throttle in case of a power loss - this drains the rx battery in a hurry . Now the BLS servo is collecting dust in the spare parts box
