NEW: Spektrum H6040 Heli Servo
NEW: Spektrum H6040 Heli Servo
Posted by Anthony Lawson on Monday, September 14th 2009

This one slipped under the radar without much announcement. Looks like Spektrum has released it’s first new servo in a long time and aimed directly at the rc helicopter market. The Spektrum H6040 has some pretty impressive specifications, but then when you see the price you will be VERY impressed! With titanium gears, .08 transit speed, and 167oz torque all for $79.99 looks like Spektrum is going after the title for best bank for the buck budget servo.


H6040 Digital Heli Servo – High Speed

Key Features

* Ultra fast 0.08 second transit time with 167 oz-in of torque

* Precise digital control

* Coreless motor for extended motor life and smooth operation

* Titanium gears for maximum durability

* Dual ball bearings provide less resistance for higher performance and longer life


The titanium-geared H6040’s lightning-quick .08-second transit time and impressive 167 oz-in of torque are ideal for use in competition-class .50- to .90-size helis that get pushed to the limits of 3D performance. Its holding power and precision are further enhanced by the rigidity of its aluminum case which also functions as a heat sink to dissipate heat.


* Size Category:Standard

* Typeigital

* Application:50- to 90-size Helis, 600-class Electrics

* Torque:167 oz-in @ 6V

* Speed:0.08 sec/60° @ 6V

* Dimensions (WxLxH):.8 x 1.6 x 1.5 in (40 x 20 x 37mm)

* Weight:1.8 oZ (52.4 g)

* Bushing Or Bearing:Bearing

* Bearingual

* Motor Type:Coreless

* Gear Type:Metal

* Gear Material:Titanium

The servo is currently backordered, but should be available soon. Spektrum is imported and distributed in the US by Horizon Hobby.

Man these sound too good to be true!
Look out Align!

Most likely the same as Align DS 610 OEM by Savox, Specs are similar, case looks similar as well.

Savox SC-1258TG = Align DS 610 = Spektrum H6040

One of the best bang for buck performance servos.

Horizon currently has an ETA of 10-20 for that servo. So it'll probably be next year before they are available to the general public.
Indoor plumbing??? No, we don't need that!!!

6040 Spektrum servo
Been flying a set on cyclics on a TREX 600 for one year now and I got them used, so they most likely have two years on them and no problems yet. Pretty good bang for the buck. Looked at the enw MKS servos at IRCHA and those look to be pretty nice for the dollar too. The TITANIUM series looks very nice but now you are into some serious BANG, or bucks.

I've been using these for cyclic duty on my Hirobo SDX. I've also been using the more recent Spektrum tail rotor servo 6080G with good luck. Their tail rotor servo is powerful and quick. It has a 1500 micro second pulse width and it is compatible with every gyro out there. Excellent value for money too as are the 6040 servos.

I've even put the 6040 in as a rudder servo on my 3D Hobby Shop Osiris for electric pattern duty.
