I'm running a Scott Grey Reactor X which only sends 5.2 volts to the throttle servo, not 6 volts.

What servos are you guys using on your 4.8/5V systems?

I just got a 9257 with an adapter plate, but after looking at how it will mount, I'm thinking it might be best to stick with a full size servo.

Saturday morning I flew my helicopter in my pajamas
How it got in my pajamas I'll never know

I always like 9252's, the nylon gear train seems to helps reduce the vibration to the pot and servo motor. They've always been very reliable for me as throttle servos.

Same question. More voltage. I've got 8717's including one to use on the throttle but now I'm wondering if I should have ordered up something without metal gears? I'm in the middle of my build and I'll be setting that tomorrow. I'm using the AR7100R. This is my first Nitro machine and I'm feeling unsure....

I would go with the 9252 or something equivalent. On 4.8v I wouldn't want anything slower.

Leon,

I would go with something else on the throttle. The 8717 is overkill and some would argue too fast for the throttle. No reason for the extra battery drain from an additional 8717.

I am using a 9451 (now the 9452) on my throttle on my 600N's - perfect.

you can use the Align carbon adapter plates and run a HS-81 total for both about $25 and you get .11/.09 speed

-or-
g-force cnc plate with hs-65hb .14/.11 speed for $45
