I mounted 3 of this servos in hk600gt and 2 of them burned the internal 4500GM IC MOS.
When I mean burn is smoking burn and internal melting I have pics.
This servos receive 5v from turnigy BEC 15A and never flew. This burns were in normal bench setup operation with no stress at them.
I operate with Rc equipment I for more than 20 years and this were the first servos that burned in the bench.
They were powered and connected to rx and whithout any use they started to burn...
I cannot thrust this servos to fly such a big bird like the hk600. It is just not safe...
If you have the original Traxxas control, you have to go through a little bit strange way of program it with the two buttons on the bottom and blinking led light. There is info on it all in the manual, but it's a five minutes work and you should have reversed it.
I used them for cyclic servos of HK600GT. Works perfect. No problem so far. However when you install ailron and pitch servos back-to-back, you must use the rubber bushing included, to avoid clearance problem.
is anyone running these as cyclic on a 600 hely? i'm going to put them on a raptor 50 i hope they're good servos.
also, it's ok a 6v/5A(burst) bec whith a 3S 1300mah Lipo? i read they drawn 2,2 amps under stress!
if not, where can i get a better BEC?
There are reasonable servo's. I use it on my electric car with a bec like yours. I recomend you put good quality servos on that big heli. Hope I can have a 600 class one thay! :) If they drawn 2.2 I think your bec will do...
I use a 5 cell NIMH pack (6v) to run two of these in several of my cars and have been very happy with performance.
If your battery pack has 4aa's and is rechargeable, it will only be producing 4.8v which is not enough to run these servos. Either get a 5 cell battery pack or use lipo's like rider suggested
This servo is good enough to be use for throttle/brake on a monster truck, because this one is fast and has metal gear, so its a strong servo for this job. Its torque is too low to be use on a monster truck steering slot, it would be really slow and weak.
Speed At 6.0V: 0.12 sec / 60° at no load
Torque At 6.0V: 10.2kg/cm , 136 oz/in
Perfect for a buggy steering sero.
I do not own an amp meter how many amps will this servo draw???I was getting brownouts but have used SPC port of my Optima Rx so all power goes to the servo and now it works but i must be close to the edge my bec is supplying 5v 1A.Thanks
G'day all, I have installed 3 of these on my HK600 heli and I am installing the V-bar600 flybarless system. The V-bar600 setup asks for servo pulse width. Does anyone know the pulse width of these bluebird servos? Thanks...
Have not flown with these servos yet. They are noted on this site as being buggy servos - check the blubird site and they for buggy, plane and heli - www.link am in the process of setting up V-Bar 600. Been going a bit slow. Still working out the V-Bar 600 settings. Part of the problem is not knowing exactly what the thing can do and what some of the settings do.... There must be a better system to understand out there..... somewhete???
The servo wants to run between 4.5 and 6.0 volts (6volts giving the highest power of course). If your pack is near that range, you should be fine but if your trying to run a 6cell pack, regardless of type, you need to reduce the voltage with a BEC. If your running the servo directly off of your receiver, which most people do, your first concern should be the voltage your trying to apply to that. Rx's run in the same voltage range as your servos and also may burn out if you over apply power to it
It will do the job of either on that car. Its got decent torque for steering and your brakes would be awesome if used as a throttle/brake servo. Make sure to adjust your endpoints so your not over shooting full throttle and stressing the servo or your throttle and linkage.
I would consider any o-ring sealed servo to be heavy splash proof but not submersible. After using the servo a bit, the seal around the splined shaft will get dirty and worn allowing water to sneak past. Add a sealant to the case, wire protrusion, and apply some grease around the shaft for some added security if you need it to be fully waterproof.
Not usually. If it picks a different spot each time you try to center it, then you've found the limitations of the servo. But make sure your radio equipment is not glitchy as well. A cheap AM radio may not be any better at telling the servo where center is than the servo is at receiving and executing that signal.
It should. All 2.4ghz radios are digital. If your running a nitro powered vehicle, make sure you are running a strong power supply to the receiver whether its fresh alkalines or a fully charged pack. These servos draw a bit more than the average servo to produce the higher torque. They aren't as efficient as a high end, high torque servo would be.
Great servo for a great price! I use this in my 1/10 scale electro 2wd off-road truck (AE SC10), it has enough power and it is quick enough (til now at least). Just take care to tighten the 4 screwz on the bottom before installation! Servo head is Futaba type, pay attention not to loose the provided screw!

4 thumbs up!
There is no 10kg of torque, only near 4-5kg. And look at speed test, it's at no load do 0.12sec/60*.
