Anyone had any experience with these servos?

They claim 0.17 sec at 4.8v with a pull of 13kg!

They seem to have been around for a while.

Most reviews show them to be way too sloppy for heli flying. I've been using the SSV-9764MG in a 600mm electric for basic circuits and they've been great so far. Not sure I'd recommend them unless you really want to go cheap on your machine. At the very least, you look at the MG996, far improved over the 995, and they've been working for me in planks. What happens if one fails? You can get some great 'cheap' servos in HiTec, with great customer service. I fly HS5625s on my .50 nitro and they've been good.

Really, that's about the best I could recommend is the HS5625, or their cousins.

I'll use mg995 or 996's for flaps on a plank, but not much else. No bad personal history, I just don't trust inexpensive servos. I use Hitecs on just about everything else because I have one of their servo programmers and like it.

Thanks Guys
To be fair I was looking at fitting them in a falcon 120 plank with a wren 54.
Think I will have a look at the Hitec!

Will be sticking to JR in the helis.

Absolute garbage.

Center hunting, no precision. I had a very interesting couple of flights on a large 1.20 size plane.

They had a mind of thier own.

I nailed them to my Wall of Shame.

If you use these in anything that flies, warn all others near you.

Why Hover a Yak, when a Heli does it better?

Personally I use them for steering my 1/8 scale off-road bahsers.
Fast and strong but the servo case is a bit weak.
The shaft that holds the centre gear in place is prone to break the servo case and this causes the hunting and even jamming of the servo. I had one servo jam and melt (got hot). There is a fix for the centre shaft. I think I saw it on RCUniverse.

That should fix the issues. Basically, they put in a wider shaft and drill out the gear. This holiday I am going to try it on one of my servos. I will then bash around with my truggy, and if the hunting/jamming issue looks resolved, I may try it on things that float.....





I see plank flyers!!!

MG995 servos

There appear to be at least 3 different versions of this servo.
The first two I bought were completely useless as servos but I used the metal gears and bearings out of the MG995 to upgrade Futaba S148s. Note you have to replace the front cover also.
Then I bought 2 more MG995s, which were much better but still jittery. These had more modern electronics, like surface mounted components. Again, I only used metal gears out of them. Last week I bought 4 more, intending to break them for the gears, but this time they seem to have got it right. All 4 are very stable, very powerful and fast. Inside, the electronics are different also. The problem is there's no version number on the servo so you don't know which one you are getting.
