I have 8317 on my CCPM on both my VIBES. I switched from 8311 servos, in both setups I ran Duralite 2800 mah Packs with the 5.3 Volt regulator. Elsewhere on the machine I have a JR 7000T/8700G on the tail, and an 8700G on the throttle.

I made the switch on my first Vibe to 8317 back in June, and I immediately noticed the difference. The higher speed on the servos was more than noticable, mainly in terms of the cyclic response. I cannot say that I noticed a significant change in the collective. I continued to fly the machine with the 8317 and when I flew the machine with the 8311 still installed, my timing was off. I since made the switch to 8317 in both machines and love the servos. I would say that I have close to 20 gallons through the machines over the summer with these servos and no failures or noticable issues.

Overall, it is a very stable and precise servos, combined with the additional speed was a definite improvment. The only ting left to take full advantage would be to run the servos at 6 Volts (they are rated for such voltage and produces max speed). I have the setup to allow me to run them at 6 Volts, while keeping my Gyro down around 5 Volts and will try that this spring when the weather warms up in Indiana.

Hope this helps, feel free to email or PM with any more questions

Exactly what Big E said! I run 8317's on both my Vibe and my T600. Amazingly fast and I have absolutely no complaints at all.

Hi

I'm using the DS8321 with the gears of 8411. This is actually the 8317. They work great! The 8321 is VERY precise, the most F3C pilots fly those servos. So the 8317 is really a great combination, I would recommend them.

Good luck
