Everyone, --- Please please please stay away from those little yellow 6 and 9 gram servos. We here have been through enough of them that we call them POS servos. (pieces of sh%t). They are very very low quality.

Motors give out after relatively little use
Resolution is low, centering very inconsistent
Gears are of a very thin profile and brittle resin. If you so much as sneeze next to a control surface they strip.

I honestly cannot believe the guy is still selling them - have to question his conscience. Do not buy them.

OK, after all of that: I have a GWS NARO servo that I am not using. It was mounted but never used. Perfect for your e-starter. It can be had for $12 plus $hip. It should go fine in a standard envelope for $1. Here is some info on it:

If anyone wants it - send me a PM. First in = first served.

There is no duty on model aircraft parts. $9US = $11cdn so why do they advertise in US dollars? So that they appear cheaper.

Zebra Hobby, I've bought GWS park flier servos from Henry for $10 cdn.

Good deal on the GWS Naro, I've just paid $15.50 each for three (ball bearing).

Had no idea asking for a used servo would cause so much response. I guess I should have specified from the beginning that I needed micro servo. That being said, sent Claude a pm. Thanks
