$$139 SERVO PART II
All smiles today. JR impressed me again. I took the fried 8717 servo I had to a local hobby shop in Tokyo. Even though they don't make 8717s for the Japan market, they hooked me up with a replacement servo FREE ON THE SPOT!

They gave me a DS8915 which is the same exact servo (For some reason it has a different number for the Japan/NON North America markets). I bought an extra one because they are only $90 here in Japan! BONUS!

Seal! That's nice! Could you tell me please wich is the local shop?
I would like to take a look in there! I couldn't find any shop in Japan that sells the 8915 for only 90 dollars!
The price I found is allways the same! 10710 yen that is about 120 dollars!

The shop was RC Champ in Akihabara. Maybe it was their sale price or something because they are back to 10,980 yen now. They always have good sales there. How far are you from Tokyo/Yokohama? I can't wait until the dollar gets strong again. The dollar/Yen exchange rate sucks right now. It should get better now that Bush is gone!

Ok Thanks Seal!
I live in Matsuyama, Ehime that is about 800km far from Tokyo but I use to go there frequently for working reasons...
Yeap for those who get their salary in dollar, the actual Dollar/Yen exchange sucks!
Thanks for the information!
