"In a pinch", yes.

The FP-S148 servo does not have ball bearings, and holds less than 50oz-in. It's also fairly slow. Not optimum, but if you're hard up these should work... at least in a 30-class ship. For anything larger than a 30-class heli, you'll want something with more torque.

I've used these for a season or two on a Nexus 30 when I first started out. For the tail rotor, you'll want something faster and stronger. The digital S9254 that can be purchased bundled with the GY401 is about as good as you can get for the tail.

Just make sure that these servos work completely before you try using them. The price of a few servos is generally quite a bit less than the cost of a new heli.

Yes agree with Leif these servos are fine, I learnt to fly on them.

The model shops are virtually giving them away - you can buy them for £9 a pop and if you buy something else, sometimes they will throw one in for free!!

That said, there is nothing wrong with them.

I even used one on the tail for a while, however I do not recommend this as the gyro will fry the servo after a few weeks.
