I've been searching around on the web and looking at outrages website. It sounds like they don't even repair there own servos. They have no product request forms nor do they even have a phone number to contact them. My problem is that I bought the servo used so I have no idea were it was purchased. I believe I over loaded it with current and need it to be rebuilt. Is there any company's out there that specialize in rebuilding servos?
Thanks for the input

Well I'm actually sending my jr servos to horizon but they don't deal with outrage. I just toasted all of my HV servos in a 90 size bird. I'm a grown man but I feel like crying lol. I already have my cyclics boxed up and ready to go, now I just need to find a company that works on the outrage tail servos????

How did they get toasted?

I have read that they associate with MKS.

I was setting up my first flybarless heli and I bought it used so I did not have the Manuel's, I tried using a 11.1 volt battery into my hellicommand hc3sx. Somehow two of my jr HV and one torq tail servo got burned up. This is my first attempt to go flybarless and I hate it already. My align throttle servo and one jr servo made it through. So two out of the 5 are still working. They did not smoke or anything, they just stopped working. Idk but it's been a horrible day. I'm out about 600 bucks and I did not even crash. WTF. It was my own fault though, I guess I should of bought a 2s instead of a 3s battery, I just figured I wouldn't have to charge it as much.

I would try contacting Helidirect for the torq servo, they should be able to point you in the right direction. Horizon Hobby is great and will service the JR servos. As far as the Align servo, not so sure about that one. Even though two servos survived and are working, I would not trust them and would send them in to get checked as well.

Good luck!!

One thing that I would recommend prior to plugging ANYTHING into your power output, is to check it with a volt meter. I have had a BEC set incorrectly and it saved a lot of money and time by checking with a volt meter.

It's worth the time and little extra effort to check all voltage output prior to powering your electronics.

It MAY be cheaper just to replace your servos if you can't find anyone to work on them.

Cheaper??? If I replaced all those servos I would be looking at around 800 bucks. I'm sure I could get them repaired for ALOT cheaper, well atleast I hope I can cause that bird will be out of commission for awhile. Anyways I really hope your wrong because there's no way I can afford to just go out and replace all my servos on a 90 size bird. But I do appreciate the info and I'm planning on calling heli direct first thing in the morning. Thanks guys

Definitely cheaper to get them repaired. Even if the manufacturer deems them unrepairable most of the time they will offer a substancial discount off new servos.

You plugged a 3S pack into servos rated for 2S? I'm sure you'll never make that mistake again

Youngbuck,
You say you are just starting in the hobby, and with that move you just did to yourself it is obvious that you need to school yourself in lipo handling and application. You had better start schooling yourself on just how these lipo's work because you easily could have started a fire with what you did. To get more time out of what you are doing you need to get a larger capacity battery not a larger voltage battery.

Cut your loss and don't make that mistake again. Check the classifieds for servos, lots on there for sale cheap. I don't like the idea of a 90 flying around with repaired servos.

I have learned if you move the sticks the right way you wont crash.

Yes rpat I understand that I need to get schooled in alot of different sections. But it's very hard when u live in the back woods of Maine and there is no one around that flys Helis in a 100 mile radius. I've made acouple threads looking for a mentor or someone that could teach me a few things in the Bangor area and can not find anybody. So everything that I have learned is on my own through books and the Internet. The closest hobby shop that deals with Helis is in Portland which is over three hours each way. It's horrible that nobody else enjoys this hobby up here in northern Maine. I'm trying to teach myself so I can introduce to the younger generation around here. There's not alot of activitys that kids can do up here espically in the winter.
