just curious if anyone has tried one these new 40 dollar servo's on the throttle? Do you think they are good enough (and fast enough) for nitro's and gassers? Will they perform well using the CGY750's governor function? I just want a reliable high voltage throttle servo that can run on straight 2s.

Hi
I'm using the 3051 on 3 of my set ups with no prob 2 are used with the CGY750 unit the other is on the 701 unit
With .16 sec it works real well
Ok some will say you poss need faster but if you do a search
Often faster than that is to fast
A throttle will only react so quick
I have tried a futaba 255hv befor using the 3051HV and to be honest
Didn't notice any real diffent apart from fuel spitting out of the carb intake due to carb opening quicker than engine can respond to

Been using the 3051HV set up a few months now and real happy
Am using bls255hv on cyclic bls256hv on tail and the bls 3051 on the throttle all used with the CGY750 flybarless unit

It's a superb set up
Using straight li-po

Hope this helps?

Thanks much for the info and feedback. Guess I will have to pick one up at the LHS today and give it a try! No more regulators or step downs, finally.

Just picked up one of these budget 3051HV servos. All I can say, this must be the LOUDEST servo in the world. Also, when its not powered up, its nearly impossible to move the servo gear train.
Hope to get some time on it this weekend.

It's hard to move by hand yes butcant say it's loud

Am guessing it's the HV version of the s3050 servos
And that's what I used for post 3 years for throttle then just switched few
Oaths back to the 3051HV

As post above says fly and enjoy without the clutter of a reg
