One more question about these servos... are they made by the same manufacturer that makes Align ESC, governor, BEC, and motors? Just curious.

I also have the 610s on my 600N and it Rocks! The 620/Spartan combo is also rock solid. These servos are sickening quick and lots of torque to go with it. The only gripe I have is that the leads are a bit short and I had to get a 5 inch extention for the rear servo. Other than that, its the best bang for your buck no doubt. Mine has already survived two minor crashes since I've had it. Both times my plastic stock grips broke and the last one included some broken ball links. It appears that these are the breaking points so I'm not sure how well the servo will hold with metal grips. I also agree that they are a bit louder than your average servo but its not a big deal IMO.

As I've mentioned I use 620 on the cyclic now with regulated 7.4 from a CC BEC and 3S. I use it in the 700's cyclic. If anyone is thinking of what servos to use for their cyclic, I'd say go for the 610 rather than the 620 to get more torque. Both are blindingly fast anyways. But I think the 620s will be fine on the 600's cyclic.

I don't get the more torque needed arguement, unless I discount the whole "CCPM uses the torque of all three servos" song...
The 620's are like 144 oz on 6 volt, and the 610 even more.
I am running 94758Z on two of my 700's with great success, and they are 115oz on 6v?
For that matter Alan ran those on his R90 mecahnical setup before he shifted brands.

The 620's are rated sfor 10Kg/cm at 6.0V, which = 138.8 oz/in.
The 610's are rated sfor 12Kg/cm at 6.0V, which = 166.7 oz/in.

At this point I have just under 100 flights on the Align DS610's @ 8V on my 700 and they are rock solid.

If your thinking of getting them, they are a great choice.

Uncertainty, people have not heard enough about them to "trust" them yet.

Even though they are not rated for 8V people want the 8V seal of approval with some longevity. Since nobody really has that much time on them my guess is that they are simply waiting for more reports to come in versus the few that have.

I know many, many people running them on 6V that are extremely happy so only time will tell.

Esprit Model is now offering them in combo's at a super price, so my guess is that you will start to see more and more show up.

That's exactly the case with me. Based on what I've read here and other experiences, I am VERY weary of Align electronics. I will be HAPPILY surprised if these servos are as good as many say.

PS No one answered my previous question... the manufacturers who make these servos, are they the same ones who make align ESC's, BEC's, governors, etc.?

I too am waiting for what more people have to say about these servos. Very tempting to go and get a set. I'm currently using Fut 9252's with an Align regulator at 6v. Which many people told me not too but haven't had any problems. but now I want to go to 8v and do away with the regulator all together. So that leads me to my question. With a 8v set up what do you do about gyro? Can you run 8v through it? And should I just use a Align 620 servo for the tail?

Most new gyros are ok with 8V, the tail servos I would still be a bit weary about.

If your using an AR7100/7100R then you have nothing to worry about when it comes to gyro/tail servo. I have not used the 620 on the tail but others I know that have say it works well. I have only been running the 8900G on a regulated 5.4V

Not sure who makes the Align Gov's but the work great as well, BEC's and ESC's I'm not sure about but the ESC's seem to have always worked well for me as well.

I know its not an Align 700 but I'm running the 610's on my Odin 90 at 8v through a 7100R.

After reading a post that ASJ was using them with no issue and Mike Fortin post about running them with no issues in several thread's I thought I'd give it a try.

I'm still breking in the engine but no problems so far. I think if all goes good I'll change all over to 610's and 620's feed by a 2s lipo through a AR7100R.

I don't crash... I land with style

I have been running 620 on the cyclic on my 700 for 5 months - no problems, They each behave the same which is more than can be said for the 9252 servos that I took out....... I actually made on the exchange as I sold the 9252's for more than the 620's cost - Am I happy , you bet I am....
