Has anyone tried the Align DS610 servo? If so, anything good/bad about these servos?

Looking to install 3 of them in my Trex 700N.

Thanks

the quality of make is average.. similar to futaba 3001/3003

the wires are shorter than hitecs

coarse sounds when switched on.

ive them on my 600N.. had to move gyro away from the aileron and pitch servos because it was causing interference.

ds620 coupled with a 401 for the rudder.. good hold @ 70% gain.. tail held nicely during fast tail slide and funnels.

faster than my hitec hs7965mg on my other 600N

the fittings for servo horns are 'futaba' but had to force slightly my futaba alu quick uk servo wheel onto them.

there was an intermittent twitching (aileron) on one occasion but went away upon switch on/off.

a fren (trex700) is using them direct from a 7.4 lipo without regulator.. 5 flights so far so good.. cool to the touch upon landing.

for the price vs performance, my 600N, 30 or so flights, im very happy.

I've tried not the DS610 but the DS620 for my Trex 700's cyclic. 11 flights and so far so good. I'd let them sit there until my 700 retires.

I'm going to follow this thread. I've always been weary of Align electronics and still refuse to try them at this point, but perhaps things have changed and so I'm trying to keep an open mind.

Here is my take on it as I posted in a previous thread.

I just got 4 of the Align DS610's for my 700N and got 5 flights on them today. I am running them on a straight 2 cell lipo at 8 volts.

First thing I noticed was that the servos are very quick as well as strong. I was able to hold the swash and the helicopter would lift itself up/down with the strength of the servos.

Speed seemed as fast as the 8717's that I had been running in the same machine only 1 day earlier and in the air it feels as precise as the previous servos. I let others fly the machine with Align servos without telling them what servos they were and they didn't realize.

The spline is Futaba based and the Align "F" wheels that come with the servos work perfect. I swapped out my 8717's as I simply had to try these new servos knowing that they had some big shoes to feel I was reluctant but can tell you that they worked flawlessly under extreme conditions.

I have 22 flights on them last weekend and they were rocking!

I agree with Mike.... I have them in my 600 and I will not buy another expensive servo for the 50.. Not sure on the 90 yet cause I have the 8717's in it...but yea... I like the servos and I would recommend then in any heli...

I guess the next question will be.....how long will they last? And how well do they hold up in a crash?

So far, I've read the case breaks and the output spline will strip first, if using the Quick UK aluminum servo wheels.
There not made by Align they just have there name on them like what they do to the OS motors
Should this be the case, then they should last.

I have purchased 3 for my, just ordered, Trex 700N (along w/Align 91HZ).

I have to snicker...sorry.

I have seen 8717 cases break in a crash..but then again there wasn't much left to the helicopter either..can't blame the quality...just gravity.

Using metal servo horns is not a good idea, I would much rather have a plastic servo wheel strip out than to break a metal gear inside the servo.

The Align 610/620, 510/520 & 410/420 are made by Savox. Savox have in production a brushless motor servo rated to run on 8.4V, I can't wait to see how much these are when they hit the stores.

I don't want to find out the answer to the last question. As to how long they would last, no one has the answer yet. The most flights I've read goes to Allan Szabo which he posted in HF. He said he runs direct lipo with those on the cyclic and has more than 100 flights and no problems.

Savox (Savoxtech) is in Taiwan. Several top RC buggy racers are using these servos for the 2009 season.

I installed the Align servos over the weekend and had a chance to run them, verify they work. So far, so good. I did notice they are a bit nosier while moving. I was told that once the horns are installed, they quite down some.

Can't wait to "rock"/"hammer" on this servos, see how they feel.

My Posts: All  Forum  Topic

just to clarify the case breakage. the cases reported to be broken some have not occured during a crash. i know personally of 2 people locally who have cracked a case during normal flying. 2 different people and 2 different helis.

there is also reports of them failing on 8.4v, i seen a picture of one badly melted a while back but not sure of voltage it had. i think it was 8.4 but not 100%. with that said jr servos also have been known to break with over voltage but i've not yet heard of anyone breaking a case midflight?

i'm sure they are fine and good value for money overall but would need to be special circumstances for me to take 8717's/8915's out and put these in for sake of it.

cheers
