Tower Pro Servo FIX UP MG9XX series

As price becomes a big factor in the RC hobby, Quality is not so easy to see, and compare, but there are some basic things to look for and fix if bossible.
The life of a servo can be hard, vibration, extreme force, moisture, and hot or cold temperature can cause problems and crashes.
This is what I do to my Tower Pro Servos to help them stay dependable.
1. Open up the bottom and look for solder problems with a large magnifying glass, resolder if needed. Check motor terninals are not touching metal case.
2. push excess wire to motor in beside motor.
3. Add some silicone to hold wires in place, a dob at the input lead grommet is ok too. See picture.
4. Put it back together and test it with a servo tester or the radio system.
The GM945 DIG HI SPEED (metal gear) has lots of power and runs smooth and quick for its size. It makes a good steering servo for car, boat rudder or sail, or plane nose wheel, but that is all.
