Does the gears from the8717HV fit into the normale 8717 servo?
Does the 8717HV also get slop pretty quick?

new 8717's, 8717hv, and 8917 have the "super steel" gears that are supposed to hold up alot better than the older 8717 gears

yeah that should be fine. Horizon in the US is replacing the "warranty" servos with the new gears, and I think all new 8717's ship with the new gears as well. Due to the previous slop issues.

Hi CoronaL,

Any where to find information that 8717 is using the new super steels gears and is same as the 8717HV? I have sloppy 8717 servos.

Thanks

someone that is sponsored by Horizon told me. I'm not sure if the rest of the world will get the same warranty service, ie replacement gears. What I was told is that Horizon is replacing the sloppy worn gears with the new super steel gears fro 8717 users who send them in for service. Since they were having such issues wtih them, they/JR is now using the super steel from the get go. Of course, this could be wrong, but it's what I was told and had no reason to doubt it at the time.

Are the "super steel" gears a lot better?

If you buy a set of new 8717's, is there any way to know if you're getting the Super Steel gears or with the older brass gears? Maybe the best thing is to order them directly from Horizon?

I would ask Horizon myself. I'm pretty sure I was told all new 8717's as of mid last year were the new gears, but maybe I mis-heard that, or maybe I got something wrong I dunno. I would ask the source
