So what. The only servo(s) I have had fail on me in the last 5 years are the Futaba BLS551 servos.

I run the Orion servos (which are made by Savox). I do use the low profile servo for for my throttle. Its great.

RE: KO PDS 2413

I used these on my nitro cars, but had two fail. When I sent them both back to KO USA, they replaced them and advised that these were not recommended for nitro use (due to heat/design). This was from their service guy (via email).

I have always had good luck with Futaba servos, and the 9551 works great.

I am tempted to try the low profile Sanwa, as I just picked up the M11X (and prefer sticking to the same brand electronics)

perhaps for me that I have a radio kopropo two kopropo are the solution.
I have two savox/vortex but I prefer try another brand.

only are futaba bls551 and sanwa BL bushless?

to choose is very difficult!!

kopropo, futaba, sanwa?

I think your splitting hairs on the top brands, you will see world rated racers running any of them really (depending on sponsors etc), do they win or loose a race?, probably not.

But I also put the low profile Savox in my TOP Photon recently, for the money it's super nice, I can't fault it at all.

when choosing a servo always choose torque over speed. A low torque servo is more likely to fail as the gear are not large enough to withstand the pressures against them. Most servos these days are quick enough when you enter this sort of range of servo selection.

if it was me i would go with a full sized high torque servo for the throttle and the low profile ko prop for steering. i had this setup and it never failed.

I was told by an experienced racer once that servo failure is usually due to poor setup by the user. check your endpoints and make sure the are set 2 o3 three clicks before the point that the edges of the hubs hit the sides of the pivot ball ends.

for the throttle make sure that the throttle and break points are also set properly and not placing excess pressure on the WOT setting and the full break setting, this is crucial, in most cases it's the throttle servo that fails on people.

I am currently using the Team Orion Low-profile in steering and the S9551 in throttle.

A few months ago, I did break the gears in the Team Orion servo, but it was a nasty crash (broke Capricorn rim) and my servo saver was almost completely locked.

The best thing was, since the Team Orion and the Savox servo are compatible, I was able to purchase the Savox gear set for $11 and fix my Orion servo. Haven't had a problem since.
