Upon inspection I have found that I stripped a JR 8917 servo in my crash this past weekend. I need to figure out what gear set I need to order tonight, so it can be here before the OHB this weekend.

All I have found is gears for the 8717 servos. Can someone tell me what gear set I need to get to fix this servo. I know sometimes different servos use the same gears. I just need to be sure before I order.

Thanks in advance!

I tried looking for you but all I could find as well were the 8717 set. However, I did find some posts on other websites that say the only difference in the two servos is the case. Not sure how accurate those posts are so don't quote me on it. I'm sure there are some other things different as far as electronic components, but the gears might be the same set. Let us know what you find out from Horizon.
