Ok Guys

Stirpped every single plastic cog inside my servo over easter. I was running a traxxas 2070 servo.

anyone suggest something better ( stronger ) for the honcho ?

Anything with metal gears & minimum of 10-15kg torque...

If you want something cheap and want it now, go for a towerpro 995 off ebay clicky ...but they are hit & miss and tend to cark it pretty regularly.

Bluebird servo's are pretty good like this one (clicky) ...but you'll be waiting to get it from HK.

Or you've got this Turnigy from Hobbyking: clicky . A few guys are saying these are Towerpoo's with a new case to stop the issues that the towerpoos have with the gear shafts walking.

If you've got money to burn go for a hitec 7955TG... What a Face

If you want it ASAP you'll be better off going for a towerpoo or go & see Joe over at Mild 2 Wild (Clicky link for Mild 2 Wild store) and check out the servos he's got in stock.


Which ever way it works out, you will most likely need to get a external BEC.

savox is pretty good but they seem to hum a little bit load. Hitec is the best to get, there quite and smooth.

Yeah Zeke's right. Savox's are a pretty good servo, not overpriced either.

Zeke, they hum because they are digital.
All digital servo's do it to different degrees...You should hear my hitec old 7955, sounds like its going to explode.

Its made by the circuitry moving the motor tiny amounts back and forth trying to find center. It should go away when you pick the rig up.
