GY-701 Gov standard servo?
Hey all, curious if I can get away with a standard s3001 servo on the governor?

In terms of performance, it'll work OK. Make sure you're in analog mode.

Just keep an eye on longevity of that servo since it works pretty hard in that application even though the torque demands are minimal. The 3001 is an entry level sport servo.

Thanks buddy, makes me wonder if there is a $25 dollar range digital perfect for a throttle servo.

Nice find, you think speed counts for more than slow digital? Im thinking a digital would hunt less for the governors sweet spot but then a fast analog would get the sweet spot fast but always hunt ever so slightly because of the lower resolution and lag.
Choice between slow digital and fast analog, is that reasonable?

I'm using a 35$ s3152 with good results on a 701 and 750.

Lots of people are running the 3151 on their throttles.

It's debatable as to whether a faster servo really offers an advantage over a slower one.

I'd personally go for a digital one over an analog.
