Futaba S3305 VS HiTEC HS-645MG

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I just bought a HiTEC HS-645MG because Hobby Home ran outta the Futaba S3305. I didn't have much luck with HiTEC in the past, such as a glitchy receiver and some iffy servos. Those were budget HiTEC stuff, like standard equipment. Compared to Futaba's budget standards, Futaba is really reliable; haven't had a problem yet. But since this HS-645 is a higher end servo, I was wondering how reliable it is compared to the Futaba S3305? The specs are definately an eye catcher for the HiTEC, but in terms of reliability, is it any good?

I have one in my savage for steering duties, it lasted all last year without any problems. And as far as I know, it will be used again this year. No idea on the comparison... usually only run Hitec or JR stuff.

I like Futaba and JR, they never have problems (unless the wire gets cut or they're wet ), my Hitec servo had really bad issues...

I've had a few of those 645's over the years.. never had an issue with them! I think that they are a great servo.

I've had all kinds of servos and so far no probelms. One of my Hitec went glitchy but it was because some water went into it. Once I dried it up it worked fine.

I have a Futaba coreless metal gear S9405 I'm selling for $50 if you're interested.
