More torque less speed better?

I would agree with that.

In some applications.

Speed counts, but speed without resolution or ability to react quickly to the data stream from the fbl controller is useless. I have in testing used way "slower" and way less powerful servos and been able to run MUCH higher gains than I was able to with friends's models with same gyro and so called super fast and hi torque servos.

"Also slower higher torque servos will be more efficient."
Slower?
Why is that good?
Same as gearing on a heli. Smaller pinion, more torque, less rpm = lower power consumption.

That's why these new servos with high torque AND ridiculously fast speeds use so much power.

60% of the time, it works every time!

It helps me to generate a "power budget"....

I try to estimate the current that all the electronic systems might draw...add in a "fudge factor"...to "size" the SBEC requirements....
