HI GUYS

One small ? can u use a hs5925 digital with a gy 401 with the ds switched on
I av been told if a digital servo is used with the 401 it should only be a Futaba servo...

CHEERS

Correct. The GY401 manual states that the DS switch in the ON position is ONLY for FUTABA digital servos as they can handle the 270Hz high, speed pulses on the signal wire.

From the Hitec servo manual found here

http://www.hitecrcd.com/product_fs.htm

Important bit being and I quote
”Pulse Data
All Hitec servos require 3-5V peak to peak square wave pulse. Pulse duration is from
0.9mS to 2.1mS with 1.5mS as center. The pulse refreshes at 50Hz (20mS).”

In other words it won’t handle the 270Hz pulses on the signal wire it could end up being destroyed.

Wow!! I was just getting ready to respond that you can but I am questioning what I have been doing. I have been using a 5925MG on my tail for 6 months now and have not had a problem.. That doesn't it wont its just my experience.. I might move that out now and check on configurations

thanks for the info
