Ok guys i am currently building a longranger kit and
it will be 30size
I am slowly getting into scale flying not interested in 3D
I am flying a V-2 now and useing the 9C the question
is will the 9202 do just fine or put out more $$$$
for the 9252 just looking for users of either servo
and your input.

I've used both. The 9202 is an excellent servo if you are ok with it being a bit on the slow side. (I traded my 9202's out for 9252's)

the 9252's seem to center a bit better (to me at least) and are a great deal more responsive.

but since you are going scale, 9202's should be fine... and best of all is that these servos have been around for a long time and you almost never hear of one failing.

For a 30 size helicopter a 9202 is more than enought, even you could use a cheap Futaba 3001 and it will work perfect.

John, while I agree with the others that the 9202 is more than adequate, you just cannot appreciate the difference digital servos make until you've tried them.

I used to be one of those who dismissed all the hoopla, and was a member of the "Who needs 'em?" club. Then I bought a 9Z, and it came with four 9252s. So, just for grins, I put them in my X-Cell ST in place of the 9202s I had been flying for a while.

Simply put, the difference is noticeable and very nice. Will they make you fly any "better"? Well, they won't magically impart you with any more skill, but they for damn sure will make your machine respond smoother and more predisely.

It depends on whether you want to spend the extra money to find out for yourself (you'll need a bigger battery too). Some have said that putting digitals on a plastic 30 is polishing a turd. Perhaps; but a lot of those nay-sayers also have Raptor 30s with more $$ worth of purple widgets on them than the kit cost; so they should know...

Assuming we're talking about two different helis,

Put the 9202's in the scale and the 9252's in the Rappy V2.

This will give you a "happy Rappy" and a "suitable scale."

Thanks for all the options and i do have digis in the rapter
and i think digis will go into the scale also they can always move on with me when bigger and better comes along.

Always willing to hear on hands use.

I really enjoyed reading your words of wisdom.

I have seen more purple than i need too on all the rapters.
I am looking for precision throws i feel i deserve that
i know how to fly and just want to keep getting better

FYI,

I bought some 9252's (NIB) on Ebay for $65 a piece. He had 50 of them at the time. I have a feeling they come from Japan (grey market?), but not sure. They arrived today and are NIB in the green packaging. Seems like a good deal.

Futaba S3010

same torque as 9202, LOTS faster, I've seen them priced @ $25 a pop lately. I run them in a Rappy 50.....and I like them. Non digital......but good all around performance. Try 'em........you'll LIKE 'em.

On the Futaba 3010, they are a bushed servo, and I had two of them go bad on me right out of the package. I am not very trusting of them. I work at a hobby shop during breaks from school, so returning them was not a problem. I had a couple customers that had them go bad as well. Based on that, I'd never trust them in a heli. (First time I've seen a Futaba product that I wouldn't trust)

do any of you guys that use the 9252's use one for your throttle servo? What do you use if not?

daved26,

I use 9252 on all CCPM or cyclic/pitch controls. I run with GV-1 so I stuck a 9253 on the throttle on the grounds that it is faster than the 9252 so throttle will move faster than pitch. Also, the 9253's are slightly cheaper. The load on a throttle servo should not be more than the tail,
so you would not need the full strength of the 9252.

Hitec 525BB can almost keep up with the 9252's.

It is cheap ($25 to $30) and reliable (for the easy task of throttle).

for a scale the 9202 will be 100% ok , the 9252 in any heli are a bit of a over kill , in my opinion , the advantage that digitals offer is basically negligable.

Have 9202 on a voyager 50 , an no hassles

9202 is the old reliable workhorse, and I have about 20 installed. Just tried a R30V2 with the 9252s and the difference was very noticeable and nice. I think 9252 is the new standard and if I'm not mistaken, the 9202's are being phased out.

Gidday

I had 9202's on my r30 v1.
I've had the 9252's about 6 months (tried them out and they will stay) and a gy401 / 9253 on the tail and I rate them, I'm new at this heli lark so still learning but I did find the digitals made a considerable difference when trying to fly precisly. I still have the 9202's but not using them at the moment. I run a 3001 on the thr , one day I might try a fast servo.
I fly 3 to 4 tanks ~ 13 min
I run a 1500 mah futaba nicad.
I found on the 30 current draw increased a little but not a lot when changed to digital servos, probably because they arn't being worked that hard which suits me fine.

Regards Don

A 9253 is a waste on the throttle since the frame rate on the GV-1 is only .22secs. A 3001 can keep up with it.

However, if you leave the 9253 at throttle, and install a throttle jockey pro, it has a frame rate comparable to the 9253 and will be faster.

HOWEVER, the mechanics of the carbs will only allow for SLOW
response anyway, so its all just semantics ( The air and fuel have to mix, that takes FOREVER when your talking response time.... If you could INSTANTLY make your carb open fully, it would still take 3/4 seconds or so for the engine to accelerate to full power...think about it). Fast throttle servos are wasted money unless your fuel-injected.
