Tail servo ?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
What would be the best servo to use on my 450 clone's tail. I need something that is about 37x17mm (Length and width).

Thanks for any help

Re: Tail servo ?

The "best" is a hard one to answer,so many opinions .... this is what I have on my HK45GT and it works well, at least it has for 6 months. A MKS digital metal gear servo that's fairly quick for $26


ohhh the bank account will never be the same HK500GTTT and CX500SEv2 in build

Re: Tail servo ?

The best would be MKS 8910 or 8910A+.
Fut 9257 or 9650 (with 9257 gears) and JR 3400 or 3500 would be the next choice.
Any smaller size servos never perform to the same level and do not last long.
There are MKS DS95i and Fut BLS257 came out lately, quite costly though.

True to a point for sure, but not necessarily true in all cases, as an 0.09 analogue servo would not work as well with a gyro in holding the tail, as would even a 0.15 digital. This is because of teh holding power differenc between a digital and an analoque.

To better understand this, see this article:
