HS-485HB updates the very popular HS-475HB by adding more torque and greater speed. With a top ball bearing, heavy duty, high impact Karbonite gears and high performance circuitry, the HS-485HB offers lots of torque and features excellent centering and resolution.
*See Karbonite guidelines below
Applications: Helis and Aircraft up to 72 or up to 12lbs when using just one servo per control surface.
Note: Be aware that high vibration gas (not glow) engines combined with large contol surfaces and large thows (3D models) can put undue strain on the gears. Metal geared servos are recommended for these applications even if under 12lbs.
Warning: Do not use thread lockers on Karbonite geared servo as it will cause the output shaft to fail.
Specifications: Motor Type: 3 Pole Bearing Type: Top BB Speed @ 4.8v: 0.22 sec @ 60 deg.
Hello, all of you.
Can you use this servo HS-485HB for swash of flybarless?
I am worried about the speed in the specifications of this servo being slow(0.22sec).
In addition, do you feel the disadvantageous point by this servo being analog?
It is exactly 45grams as seen in the photo but when it has the screws and anti rubber ect... on it weighs 48 grams, just was measuring them now actually, haha,cheers Anthony, credit would be greatly appreciated if this helped :)
yes you can use infact I am using two Radios one is Futaba 72 mhz and the newer hitec arora 2.4 ghz, I am into fixed wing flying and boats. in all my models hitec and futaba servos work well with either of the radios.
This is a very reliable servo especially for mid sized glow powered planes. The carbonite gears are very durable and the servos work flawlessly. I have been using the 475 HB servos for more than 3 years and I am sure that these will also serve in the same way. Highly recommended. However the prices are similar to the ones in Tower Hobbies which I was expecting to be lower with HK. 4 Stars only for the Price.
