You bought our servo.
It don't work for shit, see
So here's our number
So call us maybe.
I'm not sure what's worse? The fact that you made a reference to that terrible song or the fact that I got it and now the song is stuck in my head!

My MKS HBL599 has developed a case of the shakes and is less than a year old running it in a EB48 SL. I too am unable to find any warranty info on MKS, nothing on their web site and have been waiting for about 5 days now to get a response from their "contact us".

Anyone have any contacts at MKS?

So, I reached out to Thomas Cooke at MKS USA this morning and sent him a link to this thread. As I stated earlier, I used to fly RC sailplanes with Thomas and know him fairly well. Thomas asked me to post a reply for him as he does not have an account here.

Thomas said he has replied to your email - if you don't get it, PM me and I will get you his personal email. The servo you bought is a tail servo for helicopters and will only work with a gyro. Contact Thomas to work out an exchange for a servo that will work for RC cars.

You would think there would be some info on their site stating that this servo needs to be plugged into a gyro to work.

DesertRat

This servo only has 36 oz/in of torque. In what type of vehicle were you planning on using this servo?

Can anyone positively confirm to me the needed thread count for a servo horn for a MKS X5 HBL 550 Servo?

Amain does not say, mks usa does not say. I have heard it is 25 but my metal 25 tooth horn seems to be real tight and do not want to force it.
