Raptor 50 Servos for a beginner setup question
Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I'm setting up my raptor 50 with servos. I have put the digital futaba servo that came with the gyro in the rudder spot.
I have three other standards Hitec servos and two Hitec 605. Since the 605 have more torque, should I use them for specific funtions like aileron and elevator?

Hi Todd, you may want to check if the standard servos are recomended for helis. I had a Futaba s3003 fail on the cyclic of my Raptor 50. Turns out some of the standard servos have a direct drive potentiometer and they will suffer from vibration more then others. Some standard servos like the S3001 work just fine though. Futaba and Hitec standard servos are very simmilar so may be something to check into.

I'm running Hitec HS545, plenty of torque on my 50Hyper Raptor50SE. I'm assuming the 605bb (discontinued) is about the same speed and torque.
