I bought a set of Align BL-8XX HV servos from a guy here on RR.
They are 3 BL-815HV and 1 BL-855HV.
I may have gotten a price that was "Too Good To Be True".
He said they were "Pulled from a new 700 Dominator kit"
I am starting to see comments about these servos being trouble and I am worried.
From what I gather, some BL-8XX HV servos have serial numbers (these are "good" ) and some do not (these are "bad" ).
People that bought kits with BL-8XX HF servos without SN can send them to Align for servos with SN.
The servos I bought may not have the serial numbers (I don't know for sure). Two of the BL-815HV have the same number printed on the bottom (H1505) and the third has a different number (C1531).
The BL-855HV tail rotor servo has yet a third number (B1510)
The real question is:
Are the BL-8XX servos without serial numbers deadly?
As in "They WILL fail, they are no good, don't fly them"?
I have not even started the helicopter yet.
This is a 700N converted to the CHP direct to swash setup (similar to the 700E Dominator) with the DFC head and 715mm blades.
Would Align help me if I needed to swap them for servos with serial numbers?
If so, where do I call?
I haven't talked to the guy I bought the servos from, so I don't know where he bought his kit.
