The servos steer my Punisher/Thunderbolt 2 with ease, I use them in pairs. 18 months and no issues except snapped plastic horns.
Yes the spline is 23T and 7mm output. I've not found any horn that world fit correctly so ended up making a small number. I don't think many after market manufacturers will get involved as I'd imagine it's a small seller in the servo market.
Large plastic horn is logo'd 'Spring', designed for RC Boats I believe.
I have done some research and this servo output shaft has the same specs as the Multiplex Jumbo Speed MC/V2. I can upload pictures but I just tested the Turnigy arm on my Multiplex and it fits perfectly. I hope this helps. Now the question is where you can find old Multiplex servo arms...
HOBBY KING PLEASE SETTLE THIS ONCE AND FOR ALL... What splined ALUMINIUM SERVO arm will fit this servo. i dont want hear say like 25 teeth, 23 teeth, just tell me what ALUMINIUM ARM wii fit, and no I do not want to use the plastic arms (yes I know they fit. Too many people say Futaba will work then in some reviews people say Futaba didnt work. So, only from HOBBY KING I would like a definite answer and hopefully your company has test fitted to GUARANTEE a firm and correct answer.
Sorry,cannot help,checked this servo and it is different to other Turnigy servo's in that it has a slightly larger diameter output shaft.Had a search for you but can find nothing that will fit this particular servo.
So what mods would you recommend. I have been flying large scale rc planes (40% gassers) for 25 years along w/ racing cars, fast catermeran racing and fly Goblin 700/550 helicopters. I have extensive knowledge of the rc industry. I am aware and did purchase a servo adapter kit which yielded unsat results. so, guitaramp 68 what do recommend besides replacing servo which I have already done
So I receive my Futaba heavy duty splined servo arm today (Feb 19,2013)for this 33KG servo and it does not fit. So " anything stated for Futaba should fit" does not work. Give me a part number for an aluminum servo arm that you ( sell and I will purchase it. This is the second arm I have bought, lets make my third one the correct one ,Thanks guys
See look I have used this servo for robotics and dipole antenna movement. it gives decent torque but you have to be careful while mounting it. It never take more than 33 Kgcm i.e. 3.3 Nm. The motor electronics(i.e. MOSFET) get burnt while applying more torque...I have burnt 5 such...so be careful. You can use it for your application
Put 2x in my 1/5th HPI MT dual servo steering. Had to mod mounts a bit but heaps of torque and no problems with the bashing around of the truck. I did run some silicone around the joins and screw holes and some grease on the gears. Best servos I could find.
Yes 6V 3A Bec would power this servo. Go for a 5A Bec if want to power more channels on the car like lights or a remote cut off switch. Amps wont kill the servo - excessive voltage will. Servo will take whatever amps it needs.
Hey guys. People have said that the spline is 23T, the same as Futaba. All the research I have done says that the standard Futaba spline is 25T. Do the giant scale futaba servos have a different spline count? I purchased the HPI Baja servo horn kit which has all of the standard sizes (Futaba included) and none of them fit. Does anyone know definitively of a replacemtn steering servo horn that fits?
Can this be used with Alloy servo arm for car 46mmxM3 (HiTec)...Product id - 026000003. ( The link is http : / / www . hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__20707__Alloy_servo_a
Actually the inner teeth of the plastic servo arms that were provided with the motor wore out. So i was thinking of using the metal servo arms provided by Futuba or Hitech.
Please suggest which of them i can use ??
Are the servo arms of Futuba and Hitech are compatible with this motor ??
Well it is rated at 33kg-cm. This means that it should lift 33 kg at 1cm out from center axis on the servo horn, of course as you go further out on the horn from the axis the lifting capacity will reduce.
Servo operation is relatively smooth, centers well, a little jittery but not enough to be a problem in my HK 1/5th Baja 260s, bear in mind it is only $25, if you want want super smooth and precise in this size expect to pay more like $75-$100.
23tooth spline count, 6.8mm diameter. But where can we find alum. servo arms/horns, is there other choices than a mentioned Integy part INTC23061GREY ? (they seem to also be found in red and orange)
also is there a plastic replacement arm set that would fit ? With the strength of this servo, a plastic arm may be done for pretty quick
No, I will say that the PRODUCT ID: HXT9866DMG is a much better servo for 1:10 both for touring car and drifting. If you drive Short Course trucks it is better to take a little slower and stronger servo instead.
I use this servo to steer my son's power wheel (kinda crazy me). I've believed the servo will do the job but the plastic servo arm came with it is my concern. Does anyone know where to find a metal servo arm that can fit this servo?
Hi, thanks for information. Did you make in this particular servo or can be done in any servo? Do you have links to see how to do it? don't forget that any link that you put here must be with out the 3 w otherwise are erased. Thanks again
can someone pls tell me about how much amps this servo will draw max? thinking of using 3-4 of these for a project purpose. i'm also trying to figure out if 2 of these would be able to turn a both ends supported shaft weighing roughly ~ 180-200 pounds. i'm trying for alternatives to step motors, this one if works shud be a clean and compact installation with an arduino controller. help greatly appreciated. thanks..
Well converting 33Kg to pounds would be 72.75lbs. times 2 for each side of the shaft so 145.5lbs comparable withing the ~180-200lbs rang. I think it would be pushing it a lot. Now I'm not sure if these servos use metal gears or not.
