This maybe a dumb question,can you use standard servos in you're heli if you are using a 2.4 radio system.I had been told that if you are using a 2.4 radio you needed digital servos.Is that correct,or have I been told something totally wrong.

no, thats total BS. You can use any servo you want.

and it's 'your' (the possessive), not 'you're' (the you are contraction)

I don't care what you think.

People are truly judged by how they speak, write and act.

If you want to trivialize and compare me to mass murderers for informing him of the his error, well, that says something about you.

Let's return to the OP's original question.

Perhaps I should correct you for not capitalizing words at the beginning of your sentences as it, undoubtedly, does not live up to your unrealistically high standard of informal internet writing.

Seriously, you understood what stevey30 asked. Who cares if he misspelled one word? Give the guy a break.

Analog servos MAY cause problems if used in conjunction with the fastest of today's 2.4 radio systems. Analog servos simply don't center well enough or respond quickly enough for the fastest radios available. However, there are many 2.4 systems that work just fine with analog servos.

More specifics would be helpful.

I would also like to point out that there are some simply outstanding digital servos to be had for around $30 and up, so upgrading to digital will surely not break the bank. Of course you can spend $200 per servo if you wish, but not necessary.

Al Austria,

This is a forum for helicopter pilots, go and look for a forum that would satisfy your spelling needs or issues.

If you can't make a proper contribution to the topic, do not reply. Haven’t you been told before that critics are a real pain in society?

Stevey30,

Futaba's latest high speed receivers will result in failure of a servo not manufactured for the application. The receivers can be setup for a normal or high speed application.

An analogue servo won't last if the receiver is setup for a high speed application and it is also applicable for a digital servo on a low speed application.

Futaba specifies whether their servo can be used for a high speed or normal speed application.

Stevey30,

If you are using a 2.4 radio and its a JR/Spektrum with 11ms frame rate or a Futaba HS (high speed) receiver then YES you should only use digital servos.

>>> Doing it inverted is better! <<<

After a while most continue to get it wrong so it's a moot point. We need to uplift people and help them when it is wrong so that others don't keep making the same mistake. Knowledge is power.

Let's continue having fun now.

anytime you post something to the internet it becomes a peice of fresh meat to the masses and everything is open to scrutiny. i recently brought to the attention of another that his attempt at literary originality "it's like a metaphor" was just wrong and senseless. i don't take it too seriously, but if does get tiring reading posts from supposed experts and grammatically you wonder if they got past 4th grade. there comes a time in our lives when we are judged by what we write by persons more important than our internet heli peers, and it is there that a person's lack of education can bite them without them even knowing. or do you think that prospective employers ignore spelling?

so heli forum or not, education counts in life.

To specifically answer this quetion -

I run analog servos for the throttle on *all* my helicopters, including the heli's that have 11ms RX's being fed by an 11ms radio.

I also have a Raptor that has all analog servos on all flight controls, including the tail (JR 810G). Using a Spektrun AR7000 RX. My Trex-450 has Hitec HS65's (analog servos) that are several years old running 2.4Ghz RX.
