Hi there.
I need to replace the current ACE servos (c1016) on my mini titan as these seem to strip the gears very easily. It seem that alot of people use the hitec65mg servos. I need some feedback on these servos, 1/ do they have much gear slop and 2/ do they centre well. Also can anyone recommend better servos to get. I think i want to stay away from digital servos as there is more that can go wrong with them and i think a small heli does not warrant digital servos. I may be wrong here.
Your input greatly appreciated fellas

the 65mg are a great choice. the gears will not break but if your a hard 3d flier they will over time develop slop. if your not a hard flier they take a looooong time to get sloppy. and yes they center well.

I put the fun in dysFUNctional :)

Hard to go wrong with the HS65(MG or HB). I have the HBs and like them alot!

The less a man makes a clarative statement, the less likely he is to look like a fool in retrospect.

What are the HB gears like. Are they durable, like during a crash the gears will strip.
Cheers fella's

I haven't crashed the 65s, yet. I think the HBs wear less than the MGs, but are more likely to strip in a crash. But ANYTHING is better than stock in a crash. IMO.

I'm sure I'll crash soon, and I'll let you know. LOL! You may have to wait for the weather to clear around here first.

Thanks for the input guys, The following is from servo city information on gearsets for Hitec's servo's
QUOTE "There are two things that you need to know about metal gears in servos. First, they offer much greater strength than their nylon or karbonite counter parts. If your application experiences many jolts and heavy vibration, metal gears are usually the way to go. Second, metal gears wear much faster than their nylon or karbonite counter parts. Although stronger, metal gears will develop a certain amount of play in the gears over time. How much depends on how much load is placed on the servo and the cycle time. If your application needs precision over a period of time we highly recommend using nylon or even better, karbonite gears."
Damn now im confused. i think i will get the karbonite ones and hopefully they will not strip during a crash

Hi

The gears are cheap and easy to replace. Get 3 spare sets and stop worrying....

In a small crash, they will probably be fine. In a big crash, things break.....3 extra gear sets is not a big issue.

The difference is that when metal gears start to ware, you probably won't change the gears, you will just live with the slop.

Why not get the digital Hs5065 ? I think they only come with metal gears.... then you have no choice about the gears.....

Regards, Paul

Ditto, to that.

The 5065's are noticeably smoother, and with regard to the metal gear's in the std 65's, Ive hammered 450's to death with numerous crashes, and never noticed and more 'backlash' in the gears, than what is there from 'New'.

I agree the digitals are nice, but he said he really did not want digital. And no you don't NEED them in a 450.

In a crash things do break or bend. If you use the metal gear you will bend or lose links in a bad crash, something has to give(sometimes it even happens with nylon gears when they don't strip).

I have jr ds285's in a rex450 and had the hs65hb's in a cypher 450 both hold up well in crashes. Seldom do I ever strip more than one servo in a crash. Servo gear sets are cheap and easy to replace, just stock up and don't worry about it.

Thanks for your input fella's greatly appreciated. The thought of metal gearsets getting some slop has put me off them. I will get the 65HB's and a few spare gearsets.
Cheers

I've used the 65HB's in my Rex for at least a couple of years now and survived more then a few mishaps and still going strong.

If the wings are traveling faster than the fuselage, it's probably a helicopter.
