I am currently in the process of putting to gether a 90 raptor and was just wondering which one of the following servo's you guys would recommend.

1.Futaba 9255 0.17sec at 9kg @4.8v
2.Futaba 9451 0.13 sec at 8.7kg @4.8v
3.Futaba 9350 0.15 sec at 10kg @4.8

I know airtronics have even faster servo's available but i feel happy to stick to the Futaba products .

Which of the above mentioned servo's would be best or is there any others to look at ??????

Thanks SPINOUT

Hi Thomasnb

For doing 3D i was advised to go for around 8Kg servo for collective and the 9252 is only 6.6Kg ,it is fine for cyclic but might be a bit light for the collective if worked hard.


Thanks SPINOUT

I use the 9252 on my rappy 60 collective, no probs but I think you can do better on a 90.

I'm currently using 9252s on collective and cyclic. I've heard really good things about the 9451 on collective...planning to give it a try.

If you want to stay with Futaba, have a look at the S9351 for collective.

Here's a link you should see:

Cog the 9351 certanly has good specs ,kg rating and speed not to bad ,i think this servo running on a 5.1 volt regulator and duralite pack should be a good combo on the pitch.For the rest i will stick with 9252 Futaba's.

PS: I see duralite also stock a 5.3 and a 5.6 volt regulator , i wonder if any one can comment on these.


Thanks SPINOUT

I did a full autorotation today, my first time, my gosh, It felt so good!!!!!

the rappy is as smooth as silk.

a happy heli man!

I have run futaba 9252's 9250's the KO 2123 at 8 volts on collective, and for the last year the airtronice 758's which make for probably the fastest current setup. But withen the past couple months, ACE released its servos that are pretty hot themselves! The DS1013 and DS1211 were the first to come out, these are basicly car servos, (like many of the previously listed) These come with arms that are off set a little (not the same on both sides) and have shorter plug in leads. The Newest DS1111 is a heli servo and carries the same specs as the DS1211 10.8 kg-cm/150 in oz and .12 sec./60 deg. but has better arms for heli use and longer plug lead.

I have been running these DS1111's for a little while and they are great so far. They have all metal gears, a trick new metal case with cooling fins, and appear to have a longer movement range. With a street price of about 70 bucks each, Im sure you will see more and more of them in the near future.

Also, I am running them on pitch and cycilics

Thanks Jeff sound like somrthing to look at in the near future,the Raptor will be my first M CCPM heli and looking forward to it , the pitch servo was my main concern , for start i have chossen the Futaba 9351 not the fastest but it should do for a start .If the Raptor impresses me that much i might even consider trading in my Tempest for another Raptor with even better servo's like the airtronics or what ever the guys suggest at the time.

Thanks Spinout

I have been running the DS1211 and DS1013 for a few months now and really like them. They have a ton of power and are very precise and center very well. Yes they are car servos but are working very well so far. I have also tried the KO's and other high torque servos and all of them are great. It all depends on what rx battery, regulator, and switch setup you are running.

If you want plug and play check out the new ace servo's I am sure you will really like them.

I am also running the Ace DS1013 on the collective of my Raptor 90 and it rocks. I have a KO 2123 running in my Dyna-x on 7.4 volt lipos but I may change to the Ace servo in that machine as well.

These servos are not new. They are RC car servos but are now being used for Helis just like the KO Propo 2123. They are very fast, precise and have lots of torque.
