  • New Spektrum Large Scale Servos!

    Spektrum has finally set a release date -November 14, 2014- for their new large scale servos. Both are listed at $199.99 MSRP which places them at a price point that will appeal to large scale racers and bashers and they also offer some amazing specs -if you're running a LiPo RX pack... 1. The S9010 1/5 Scale Digital HV Surface Servo (Throttle) (SPMSS9010) Spec_Torque: 485 oz-in (48.6kg-cm) @ 6.0V; 660 oz-in (72kg-cm) @ 8.4V Spec_Speed: 0.15 sec/60 deg @ 6.0V; 0.11 sec/60 deg @ 8.4V 2. The S9020 1/5 Scale Digital HV Surface Servo (Steering) (SPMSS9020) Spec_Torque: 675 oz-in (48.6kg-cm) @ 6.0V; 1000 oz-in (72kg-cm) @ 8.4V Spec_Speed: 0.22 sec/60 deg @ 6.0V; 0.16 sec/60 deg @ 8.4V, at no load As they should be, these are digital, have an improved integrator design that eliminates crowbar effect and reduces heat build-up, waterproof, low profile, have a removable hi-strength servo lead, 2-cell LiPo capable, dual ball bearing, and they are equipped with steel gears.

      What I heard last year was that it was going to fix the steering on the 5ive some people were having and I put one on order and have not heard anything yet
      But I will check on it in a week after the 15 when I go up there to pay on a new 5ive that he had on the shelf and I could not say no to when it said take me home with you

      From the specs it really sounds like it will do the job. Have you tried getting it from horizon directly?

      That's a decent price for the servo.

      But on the servo I did not pay because it was not available yet but he went ahead and place it
