So when are these 'new' futaba servos coming out?
Hi everyone

I keep hearing that Futaba is on the verge of changing the game when it comes to servo technology. Does anyone have an idea as to what this information is, and when it may be released?

Thanks,
Andy

First I've heard of it..... of course Futaba is notorious about leaking out info and then taking months if not years to make anything happen. Then all of a sudden bam... there it is.

Your guess is as good as mine.
I sold another one to Terrafirma...... wife wants to know where the money's at!!!!

My best guess i brushless servo's that can operate on a 3S lipo unregulated, or roughly 12V with different servo connectors to handle more current (though it would be less at 12V)***Logo 600 vbar***Henseleit TDR vbar***

Its frustrating to see how S..L..O..W Futaba & JR etc are getting grips with new technology.

How long have we Lipo batteries in common use 5 years ? and yet we are only now seeing the first high voltage servos hit the market.

RC Manufactures are stuck in a time warp based around old NiCad technology.

Lets hope if Futaba are going to get out into the real world they bring out servos that directly run off at least 2S Lipos and also bring out receivers to match. Its utterly stupid to see the electronics on big Helis or plank is all piped thru unnecessary voltage regulators.

Thats pretty short sighted thinking. If Futaba rushed a product to market and it had some issues, you'd be crucifying them. I like the way Futaba does things. There is a high degree of confidence that when they introduce a product, there will be minimal issues with it.

In the lipo example, you state they have been common amoung us for 5 years. It would be reasonable to wait at least the first couple of years just to see if the hobby stays with them. Ok, now we have. But, their discharge rate capability keeps changing and now people are starting to think about running 3 cells non-regulated instead of 2. It take time to figure out where the hobby is, where it might be headed and what might be the new "standard". I think there is enough info and coming technology now that we will see something from Futaba soon and when we do, my bet is it'll be right, right from the start.

I think that the new Futaba receivers are comming out now with Power Requirement: 4.0V- 8.5V. so they can easy take a 2 cell lipo.

You have to be kidding. A new battery technology comes on the market and it takes granny Futaba (& JR etc) 5 years to get around make a make a servo that supports it.

The Heli (& RC Plank) market moves and demands much faster response from suppliers than that.
