Love 'em. Never had a bad one yet no matter which one Hitec servo I pick. I've been flying Futaba and Hitec for nearly 15 years.

I've only had good luck with mine. I have their servo programmer and use it to center up servos and set end points for planks to make installations go easier. I can't remember a Hitec servo ever failing me except for stripped gears in a crash.

Hitecs rock, can not beat them for the price, and unless you are doing some wild crazy 3d stuff, those high over priced servos are a total waste of money

others have said that they don't center well too much deadband.

I have 2 heli's with em. I don't feel what they are talking about, mine work well and they have a low power consumption.
maybe when I become a 3D pro I might notice the differance until then they fit the budget.

I've got hitecs on my 450 pro and they are going strong since late 07. They were on my 450SEV2 and are what I learned on. I've crashed that thing so many times when I was a noob and only had to change gears twice. They are the HB versions and not the metal gears. I too have heard about dead band/centering issues but have flown them on planks for years without issue.

High Voltage just works better

Hitec 7940TH has identical specs as 8717HV. The main difference is the gear material.

I believe most modern servos use same or similar motor, circuits to be reliable.

I have found brass gears do not belong in helis (except in 450s) as they develop slop too quickly. Titanium gears seem to start with near zero backlash and maintain that over 500-1000 flights.

Only downside is that they are not replaceable nor do they sell spare gears as they probably cost as much as the servos themselves. So far, I have not worn them out yet.

I will be testing MKS and Savox with similar specs to see how well they hold up. Servo testing can't be done in short period of time and will probably take the rest of the year to get assessment.

Not all.

The HS7000 series with titanium gears are great servos for helis. Be specific and ask around for recomendations.

I had HS5625 and HS5645 that worked great on planks but sucked on helis.

I myself am sold on Futaba Helicopter servos, love their feel, resolution and the fact that comsume LESS power than others. Yes, they cost more.

NO, they are great servos without respect to cost. Period.

I run the el cheapo Hitec HS-55 in my 450. They work awesome.
The gears strip very easy upon impact, but the gear sets are cheap and easy to change.

I used a set of 5625's a few years ago and hated them but then tried a set of 6965's and love them. Had them in a raptor 90 for a few years now.

56xx series are not simply suitable for heli use. Too slow, and brass gears will develop slop fast.

Karbonite gears are not recommended for 90sized mCCPM. It is just too much pitch load for a single plastic gear to hold up. While they can be used in 90 eCCPM, they do slow down due to the lack of torque. 6975/6985 will be faster when heavily loaded.

I did some controlled pitch pumping with R90 and sure enough I was able to get the gears to strip. When R90 loses pitch servo, blades tend to settle at zero pitch and heli just descends.

I use 6965/7965 on 50 sized helis only. If you were lucky enough to get the 5996TG (same as 6965 with titanium gears) car servos, they do perform well in 50 sized helis with fast response.

Haven't used them in my helis, but I use them in my planes. No problems.
