Hi, I was trying to fly my friend´s Esky Honey bee 3, after solved the servos direction issue, we crash it several times... well I told him that I´m novice... anhe is too...

I really hate this Heli, but one thing I saw is that after 4 serious crashes, all 3 servos works right, and no gear damage, comparing with my SG90 servos on my 450, Esky servos seems to be indestructibles!! any agree? I´m considering put them (Esky EK2-0508)on my 450, what do you think?? yes I know there are better servos, but consider I´m learning to fly so I will crash very often, (and maybe some day will get Heli on air for more than 2 minutes!!)

thanks in advance

my experience with the ESKY servos is not good, they are slow and weak, even a minor crash and they will trash the gears. I think the best servos for your setup would be a set of the Hitec HS65MG (metal gear/best)or HS65HB (carbonite gear/better).

I dont always fly helis, but when I do, I prefer Outrage.The most interesting man in the world

I would absolutely not put those things on a 450 size. For starters I don't think they are the correct size and would not mount without some modification. And they are too weak and despite some lucky breaks you've had, they are not as durable as you think. Also, a 450 is going to put a lot more stress on them. If you want some good 450 servos that will not strip gears get the HS65MG's like mentioned above. Some actually prefer plastic gears though as a point of failure so that more important parts are not damaged in a crash. Either way, I would def. not put them on a 450 class heli.

I took those servos off my old belt cp v2 and put them on my CopterX 450 AE V2 been flying with them for 3 month without any problems, I don’t do 3D or had any crashes. I also used the esky HH gyro on the CopterX work’s great.

Esky servos and Futaba 7CHP setup
Hi Folks, many thanks for the inputs, lwill keep in mind when buy new servos, I only was amazed how those Esky survived the crashed.

another question, any guide to set up a Futaba CHP radio for a 450? only want to over, not 3D.

Thanks again

Different servos must be different in crashes.
My freind has the Align servos in his 500 and every crash seems that at least 1 or 2 of the servos need new gears, Ive had these cheap hs 85`s now I think for over 2 years, Im not keeping count but theyve been crashed I would think at least 20 times whilst Ive owned them, and who knows how many times the guy who had them before I did, they were second hand when I got them, they were either made in 2005 or 2006 so there probly 5 years old and still seem perfect.

a "3D" setup isn't really just a "3D" setup. It is an optimum mechanical setup that allows your heli to do 3D flying to the best of its ability.

Set the mechanics up as if you WERE going to fly 3D. Then tune your pitch and throttle curves to suit your style of flying.

This ought to tell you about all you need to know about setting up your heli and radio:

I realise the cheap Hitec servos (56/65/82`s etc) are not the highest performance servos for 3d, but they seem to be alot more robust than the more expensive ones, even the ones in my 600 have been through a couple of helis and numerous crashes and never stripped a gear.

Come to think I cant recall ever haveing a stripped gear ever, and Ive crashed so many times its beyond a joke.

Got a zip lock bag full of old burned out Esky 8Gm servos, mostly analog, some digital. The have a high failure rate in my experience, and I'm not talking about stripped gears. The gears are easy enough to replace. Like most things, you get what you pay for. Decent quality might cost twice as much, but last 4 times longer.

450 servos (ex esky ones)
thanks for trhe impkuts folks,

so what recommends for my 450 (Copter X)? Im trying to geta cheap version to lern to fly, dont need extremely hifg response so no want 3D, only need a strong servo wich can support many crashes as possible. I also have ASSAN Gyro GA 410 pro from Hobby King.

Also would need some servos to replace my Walkera 1#B damaged gears servos, so can put it on sale, and some spare servos for foamy planes (trrainer from Mickeys RC)

Any comment welcomed as usual

kind regards

My HK-scale 450 has ESky servos in them. I had a Belt Cp and ran them on 6V for over a year in Iraq with no issues. In fact they are the ones on my scale 450 currently. Servos were not designed to crash I don't care what anyone says. They are designed to control control surfaces. If you crash alot, then metal gears would be the way to go. If you just fly scale/sport than the Esky/Eflite/Align variants is plenty. For the price of some of the Hitec metal gear servos you can buy a full set of Eskys. If your crashing, buy used servo sets. Much cheaper. You'll see what I saying when your first crash destroys your $40 Hitec/Futabas(s)
