...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

I noticed they are quite heavy. An awesome servo, but geez they're pricey.

nice!! i'm very tempted to get some. maybe 5. yes that's for throttle and rudder. just to keep it coordinated.

my 8717 doesn't have slop by the way. i bought it when it was $95 a piece at heli-world.

The gears are probably made of iron or schteel <arnold accent> Please post results of your experience with running one on the tail at 8v.

I only crash due to random planetary intervention

Id be interested if i could buy the gearset to put in my existing 8717's.. i agree.. all my 8717's develop a lot of slop. Not sure what Futaba is using but their bls253's seem to be holding up with zero slop quite nicely so far..

after 150 flights on my 700N, my 8717's are quite sloppy too. Not too impressed.

Life is meaningful flying helis.
