I just found out for myself the Futaba S3107 servo is a perfect fit for the Mini Titan swash if every measurements in the build manual is followed. The geometry of the swash links is spot on. Did ThunderTiger designed the MT using this servo? And how come nobody has ever mentioned this anywhere?

I think that that servos performance is going to be lackluster for that heli. Shave down the mounts and use some HS 65's.

You mean, the torque? It's got almost the same torque rating as the JR DS285 and is faster. The DS285 is one of the only 2 recommended servos (the other one being HS-65 HB or MG) I know for the MT. Or is it precision that is not good on the S3107?

I know this is an old thread...but just wondering if the S3107's ended up being any good for the Mini Titan?

I've heard the S3153MG's fit pretty well too?

S3107
When you compare the S3107 to the HS65 and the DS285 the spec's are all relatively close. The big difference between them is the price. The S3107 is about half the cost of the HS65 and about 1/3 the cost of the DS285. I personally haven't encountered anyone using the S3107 servo, not to say that it isn't a good one. I think it boils down to user preference and word of mouth about the particular servo's performance.

I dont know why people insist on the 65's.I have the 56's on both my Mini titans.they fit perfectly with NO mods.faster than the 65's but slightly less torque.they have performed flawlessly for thousands of flights

I think the S3107 is nylon gears though, which would probably explain why it's cheaper?

The S3153MG is metal geared - anybody use these? I think these are probably closer in price to the HS-65MG's etc, and also fit perfectly in the MT I understand?

I will check out the 65's.... I wasn't aware of them....

For servos I chose Futaba S3157's for cyclic and collective and a BLS257 for the tail. The 3157 have the performance you need. You do need to be a little careful with the gears, if you hit the head hard you will probably break a tooth. Other than that they will work great.

The 3107 is a analog servo and will work fine, but will not have the resolution of the digital servo.

I'm a bit confussed. ;-)

The S3157's are nylon geared; for the same price you can get S3158's with metal gears and I believe these fit the mini titan too?

Both digital and otherwise the same I think?

How much speed/torque do you actually need for the Mini Titan cyclics?

As long as you get at least some certain amount (I'm not sure how much that certain amount is?) I suppose any additional torque is essentially "wasted" anyway?
