9257
I have maybe a dumb question but can I use a Futaba 9257 servo for the tail servo of my Raptor 30? I can't seem to find the answer. I'm just a sport flier, no 3D.

9257 is a mini servo,at 27 oz.the torque may not be enough,and you would have to come up with something for the mountCompass helis Support Team

I guess that is was what I was figuring also. Not enough torque. Just need confirmation. I happened to buy it with a 401. Well could just sell it I guess or use for a throttle servo. Mounting I can make. Thanks for the reply.Raptor 50 V2

The 9253, a full size servo once popular with the 401 gyro, had something like 28ozin or so. It was later replaced by the 9254 with around 48ozin. The 9253 was used by many poeple on all sized helis, including me on a raptor 30. For sport flying I think the 9257 would be OK on the raptor.

Dont do it...Gears are very small, Motor and internal electronics are also small..combined with oil and vibration of a nitro. Very well could have a failure.

2 servos...same exact specs..ones a mini the other is standard size..which do you think would last longer? exactly. Its not worth it.

Thanks for all the info. I think when I get it I will just sell it and buy another servo. It may work but I don't think it's worth the risk just in case. Thanks.Raptor 50 V2
