How do you mount these servos to a 500 class heli? I bought 3 of them for my cyclic but they are about 5 mm shorter than regular park servos in the 'E' dimension. The servo bolt holes do not line up with the holes on the chassis or rudder mounting plate for installation!
ive put them in my HK 500 i know were your coming from the trick is to put the servos in the top and to bolt them in and then force them down a little till they line up with the bolt holes in the servo thay will be slightly short at both sides but should be secure enough to sport flying hope this helps :-)
Trust me, use the plastic arms, the torque that the servant has already these are good, the aluminum is just to make heavier, use about 10 of these servants, they have over fiber pusher jets that hit the house 160 180km/he plastics use arms without any problems
If you purchased some TGY-306G or TGY-306G-HV, TowerPro SG-90, MG-90 or MG-90S Servos, - their servo arms fit on this S3317M! And some of them are more stable, so you can change them to match your application.
for starters i would recomend the turnigy tgy930 digital metal gear for the 3 cyclic instead of this one we started talkin about. i have had the 930's in my 500 with well over 100 flights and they are awesome! as for the tail servo you want something fast (.10-.08). i use align tail servo's on all my heli's. i am running the ds620 on my 500 (its made for the 550-600) but the align ds520 is made for the 500. anything that is on here that has a decent speed to it and is DIGITAL would be good. if your not doing 3d you would be able to get by using the turnigy tgy930 on the tail as well.
have you bought any other electronics for the heli yet or are you still looking at what to get? what gyro and motor are you looking at? if you havnt bought anything yet i personally recomend the turnigy typhoon motor for the 500, but with the high kv of the motor you should get a 11t pinion (i think thats what i have). just google it and you will find them on the web. this motor is very powerfull and effecient on the battery life. and how is your budget on the gyro you are going to choose? are you on a hobby king budget or do you have a few bucks to spend?
Yes, Typhoon 500H is in my list. As for the tail servo it is HD1204HP ultrafast coreless .05sec. I hv looked for the TGY930 but it is out of stock at the moment, so next to it is the TGY3317M. Personally, i would like to go for digital gyro. However, my friend who is helping me to assemble this heli is more familiar with the
analog electronics. So, looks like i'm gonna go for the Assan
Help ! I bought hk500 kit and 3 servos s3317m for the cyclic plate, recommend in lots of foruns to be suitable and easy to fit with the 500gt kit.

My question... where can i get these adapters ?
Use the supplied dambers and cylinders. When you are about to screw them on to the heli, make sure all 4 screws are through the chassi before tighten them. They are a bit tricky to get through but they will straighten themself out without damaging the chassi.
By dampers I mean those rubbers that are supplied with the servos. Use them on the mounting holes of the servos and then put the cylinders through. Mail me on regulators_reaper*msn**** and I will have some pictures ready for you.
These servos seem to be very similar is size and weight to the Hitec HS-82MG or HS-85MG servos. Can anyone confirm they are as reliable, center properly, decent torque, etc?
Trying to find a nice alternative to the high priced Hitec servos.
I initially bought these servos and used them in "very" low stress applications. But as time went by, i look back and have found that I began to trust them quite a bit. Very reliable and great option for a lower pricing alternative
I use 3 of these on my 500GT and so far here are my comments: - Strong and Torquey - Smooth and Silent Gears - Perfect Centering - Light in Weight Works perfectly on my HK 500GT Good luck and happy flying!
No, but the shorter length of this servo with one end secured normally, puts the other end fixing holes on the edge of the main body hole, so they can be used with a rear washer without any drilling or other modification.
MG930's fit more exactly.
