Default Futaba BLS352/ BLS351

Just wondering if you guys like these servos. Im putting a 352 and a 351 in my rc8 for steering and throttle. Ive heard that the brushless motors dont have as much holding power - wondering if its been a problem for anyone

I have been running 352 for both steering and brake in an MBX6 and they seem both fast and strong. 1600mah rx pack / Futaba 4PK

good choice. I just ordered another one myself.

http://www.carolinasrc.com/Webstore/...idproduct=7407

I think it has 208 ounces which is plenty even for a truck. I also used carolinas special for 10% off. Not sure what it ended up being....

I think once in your cart it will be $139. So it ended up being about 125 shipped to my door.

I use the 351 for steering duties in my 8t. Love it. More than enuf power. Getting a 451 for throttle this winter to replace a 3 season old 9451 that has been flawless.

My BLS351 has a bad case of Parkinson's....i.e. it hunts for center whenever there is no load. Probably should send it back.

I run them both also, and so far they are great. They center really well. No longer have the hunting sound from either servo when once they are powered up. Very responsive servos. I am running a 4PK too and have the Radio set up to run the higher/faster output and no troubles at all. I will continue to run em........

yup, steering...in an 808. Bought new when i put it together at the beginning of the season. Was fine for about 3 weekends, thewn went to shit. It still feels fine on the track, but on the box, it's a little annoying (and embarrasing )...

those futaba's are top, they run cool as well. I run 2 bls451 in 1/10 touring and 2 bls352 in 1/8 bugggy.

first time I 've had servo's last the whole season in 1/10


for less $ the ace/Associated are very nice. I have one for backup, I may run it for throttle as it is faster than the 352

Check your endpoints.. the brakes should stop the car but there should still be some play on the throttle return spring.. and at full throttle you should have a little play in the carb..

IMO, hearing noise while holding the brake ist totally normal.
