9203 Same as 9205
Yes, Actually a 9203. Same exact servo as the 9205. Ask me why Futaba changed the number.. No clue.. Anyway it works great, holds excellent on my Futura.

I wouldn't use it at all. It is not recommended for use with the 401. The 401 will work the servo hard, and the 9203/9205 series will die.

Will it work, yes. Just get ready to hit throttle hold.

Is it or Isn't it?
So,
Is this combo safe to use if the gyro is not set to use a digital servo? I am asking for a friend, who bought this combo used on a raptor. We haven't tried it out yet, I just wondered........

The only reason I can see not to use a 9205 on the tail is because they have metal gears. Probably not the best bet for a tail rotor servo..

It will work, but will probably develop slop in the gear train after constant use and will eventually have trouble centering when the gears begin to wear. Just be sure the gyro is not in DS mode and put in a little delay to help the slower servo.

The 9205 specs are 76.4 oz torque and .11 sec speed and it is coreless. (I'm pretty sure those specs are @ 6v).

A buddy of mine has a cheap @ss Hitec 525BB on his tail with a 401 and it flies great. He smoked his 9253 and said he has no plans to replace it because the 525 flies almost as good.
