Would you bother?
Quick question.....

Been flying the Trex (450 XL CDE, eCCPM)with HS-55's (hs-81mg on the tail)

just getting in to 3d heli (fly airplanes, foamies to giant)

I have 3 Hs-56's on the work bench....
would you pull the Hs-55's out and put the Hs-56's in....or just leave the 55's in and call it good?

What would you do?

Cheers
Exeter

I only noticed a very slight difference between the 56 & 55s. I seemed to get better response, more crisp if you will. If you don't have anything planned for them, I would do it. The gear train is much stronger in the 56s. I'd consider a new tail servo first. Not sure what gyro you run so I can't say right now. BTW the airtronics digital is ligher smaller and metal gear.

the 55s' will fail you, I would put in the 56s' just for a peice of mind, just my opinion though. I will never run 55s' again....Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

As well as being stronger the gear train on the HS56 has much less slop than the 55's. I'll add my vote for the 56s.

I would definately change them. I dont think the Hs-55's are up to a long term task.

No other choice especially as you are looking to do 3-D

I'm waiting for the new HS65MB's. More torque and conventional mounting offsets. Most people have mounting alignment or clearance issues with the 56's. Be aware if you are using a marginal BEC that the 56's will draw about 3X times current of your 55's. This has caused some problems.

The only bad point about the hs56's is every time you crash the gears strip.

AWittleWabbit, have you ever run an HS81 on the tail? I run them with 401's and they are fantastic. Far better than a 50 or 56 (especially). Digital is better but this is no slouch.

Intewesting...

That's cool hs 81s work. I have 3 of them in a box. I am using an Airtronics 94761 digital. It works great. Call it a pet peeve, I just couldn't bear to put that huge Futaba servo back there. It'd be like bolting a dumpster to a AH-64 tail boom

I'm gonna keep in mind the 81s when I build a back up ship. I still gotta pay my tab at my heli pusher, er, "supplier". Do you mind sharing your settings? Gain, delay, etc? I'm going to bookmark this thread so I can refer back to it. Thanks.

Regards,

Jiro

I use a HS81 for the tail of my Eco 8. They make quite a good tail servo for the money!

Gee...thanks for nothing guys!

Was running the 55's... this weekend.. finally decided to ring it out..
my first inverted flight!

Rolls, flips, even a bit of inverted hovering... very smooth.. assuming I can remember which way to push the sticks!

Until towards the end of the day...
when the gears on my HS-55 elevator......stripped.....

Yikes!

Upside down on to the head....

luckily just a few pieces in the head were broken...time to upgrade to metal!
frame, boom, and tail are all fine....

now the HS-55 had been used in past 3D foamy aircraft....so it may have been on the way out..
but Hs-56's are going back in with the rebuild.
they have slightly less torque than the 55's, but the gear train is stronger....

Oh well...
as for the tail...
I have been using the Gy-401 with the HS-81Mg... rock solid...
(using a MicroHeli Pro tail)
so the tail is not an issue....

Thanks again.... but if only I had posted one week earlier
