Default Xpert Servos

Didn't see a thread to discuss. How does everyone like them so far? I haven't had a chance to pick up any yet.

There was an "Official Xpert USA" thread. I guess it officially got deleted...

Okay Nick, my servo is finally on the way . I know everyone hypes up the products that they represent or endorse, but all of the Viper escs you "hype up" have delivered and then some and I expect the same out of these servos. My buddy has the same B4.2 setup as mine and also ordered this servo. In comparing this servo to his Radiopost green, he said it's not quite as smooth (the Xpert), but is just as fast. Honestly, I have yet to find any servo that's as smooth as a Radiopost, and given that the Xpert is only slightly more than half the price, I'd say that's a heck of a compliment towards the Xpert. Mine should be here sometime during the week and I expect to be reporting back with some very positive feedback .

Its funny, I have heard that from a couple of people - funny thing is, I have used both and yes, sitting on the bend moving the wheels by hand, the Radio post is smooth, no resistance. But using it with the vehicle power on, moving the wheels via the radio. I wouldn't be able to tell them apart, if you didn't tell me which was which. Didn't know the other ones were that much more expensive, just found another plus!!

I installed mine in my B4.2. This is what I'll report. On the car stand with the power on, the Xpert is slightly louder (using radio to turn) than what I had in the vehicle (Spektrum S6040), what I have in my Tekno SCT410 (ProTek 130SS), or what I have in my T4.1 (JR9100S). However, it's blazingly fast. Definitely faster than the Spektrum, not quite as fast as the ProTek, very comparable to the JR which is saying a lot. Can't wait to get it on the track and see how it stacks up then. Bench testing score : A.

Lots of options.

SI-4531
SN-4601
SN-4501
SM-4601
SM-4502

Great Torque - awesome speed. SN and SM have more advanced cases more durability, less flex. And they just look cool.
