Why do servos have such odd numbers/names? They're all long.
I mean look at the airtronics servos! What's with 94761? (how are you supposed to remember that?)
Do the numbers represent torque/speed/type?

Yea could be that!
or
maybe they use a scientific calculator and press the shift key and then the key that say (Ran#)
then you got a random number
well obvious the DS means Digital Servo and Futaba S means Servo
if it is right?

Well yeah.

I know that like MG is metal gear, etc.

I know that with JR you can have an idea of whether is high end or economy based on the number of numbers (lol), i.e. 811 (3 digits)=econmy, and 8317 (4 digits)=high end.

Oh

Now that I think about that jetcopter, that makes sense. Hmm, odd.

I guess it counts as a post maxist since you technically answered my question. (you're trying to get your post count up, hehe, I caught you).

Most part numbers start out with good intentions, they just tend to get messed up along the way.

Example (not real) S9254, everyone things the S92xx great servo, so if they followed a torque or speed number in thier part number, and it through them off, then they need to mess up the numbers. or if its a replacement, thats better. ie. GY201, GY401.

I was an engineer at a company and the part # were already asigned groups before I got there, and they were 5 digit total, 81xxx, 82xxx, etc.. problem was they didnt leave space in groups. somone make 811xx as pressure fittings and 812xx as hydraulic hoses, well, I designed more fittings so 811xx was all used up, we jump to 911xx for the rest of the inventory, bothered me the entire time I was there.

Me, I like to add letters, and leave gaps! I would have done PFxxx, and HHxxx might have even thrown in another letter for high pressure or standard.

ok, thanks for letting me rant.

I'm with Yug. I order my FlobberchopMG's by the case from HeliProz. I did try a Borris on the tailrotor once but it overheated. They're only good for throttle duty. A Gladys on the tail -- now yer talkin'. Fred's & Hamish's -- planks only.

thats becouse borris is use to the cold, just look at the jacket he wears. thats why it overheated, you need something like a Gecko, use to the heat. But then it depends on the climate you plan to fly in.
