Hello,

I want/need to replace the stock servos with metal gear servos and also get break away servo arms. So the next time I crash, the break away servo arms will break and the servos will be fine.
So some people suggest the Hitec 5055 ($18 each) others suggest the Hitec 5065 ($35).
So I am requesting "divine guidance" from people more experienced than me.

Regards, Dave

Issue with arms for the hitec servos

Hello,

I got the Hitec 5065 metal gear servos. I am using the break way arms from buddy rc. The arms are to long, do i need to cutout the frame?

Regards, Dave

Can you shim the servos to make the arms miss the frames? Been a while but I remember one of the balls that go in the arms faces the opposite way of the others. Don't know if that's causing the problem.

A picture would help. I swapped to H3050 servos on mine but that was in 2015 so the process is foggy at best lol

Questions about the 5065 servos

Hello,

I could shim the servos, but I would have to do all three and them get them to line up with the swash plate. I might get the 5055 that I have be told are a drop in replacement.
Thanks for getting back to me.

Regards, Dave

Spektrum H3050's are the only ones I know for a fact are a drop in replacement

Can even use the stock servo arms

Sorry for the delayed response
