I've got brand new BLS 251 that I'm installing on my 700 and the servo feels like it has more resistance to turning by hand with the power off, like there's more drag inside. (I know I probably shouldn't be doing that huh?) The servo seems to work fine, although I haven't flown it yet.

I've compared it to another BLS251 as well as a 9256 and there's definitely a difference. The other servos I have feel easier and somewhat smoother to turn. Has anybody else experienced this?

I had an old 9251 go bad on me a while back and it got really tight - a friend said that the motor had burned out. In any case, this does not feel nearly as tight as that one got.

Thanks,
Todd

All of mine are that way. They work.

It could just be that I'm being a little paranoid - I'm kind of wacky that way....although like I said, there is a difference that you can feel between this particular servo and the others.

Thanks,
Todd

i had the same when replaced the gear suggest try to pull the spine with the servo horn on it. It possible that the bearing not properly seat in its place.

lok,
You nailed it. I pulled, it clicked, and now it feels smoother.
Thanks!

Wow, I'll take a closer look at mine.
