Oh contrare Kelly the precision is critical a good coreless that's centers well is key not a digital ! 4231,8231 etc makes a huge difference . Same reasone why we don't recommend digitals on flaps they hunt all the time. Trailing link nose gear will amplify the problem.

Re: Nose wheel servos failing

I dunnow man, I have yet to see a nose gear linkage that has a tight enough connection to the servo, such that any great centering servo will be noticeable. The buildup in lost precision in the system accumulates from the servo spline right through every part connection to the wheel bushing, and some point along the way are pretty bad... I can certainly see the benefits of such a servo on an aileron, or elevator, but not a nose wheel.

Re: Nose wheel servos failing

1. Servo savers rarely fail. Surface guys all use them and they are merciless on their equipment. They cook servos first.

2. Flying from grass, steering precision is not nearly as critical as flying from pavement.

3. For the short amount of time that the nosewheel is on the ground, a digital servo is overkill, and no benefit would be realized over a metal gear analog servo (even if it didn't fail).
