View Full Version : Broken servos

Hi guys. Well I've managed to snap off both steering servo shafts. What do you guys use ? Do they make servo savers that big? I thought that the springs on the T's was some type of saver, but I guess I was wrong.

They are savers. You can back off the nut a lil to give you more "give" in an impact. I run the stock round servo horn that came with the servo. I have yet to have problems-but I have not bashed it hard.

Jimmy broke both servo OUTPUT shafts on his 1 time. He was useing Hobbico 700 1/4 scale servos, as was I until I found that mine just stopped working. He got a new set of gears and he's ok, and me, I sent mine back to Hobbico and they replaced them for me,, but in the meantime,, I bought 2 Hiteck ones from Tower. METAL gears 180 ozs of torque. With these, no probs at all.

Hobbico is what I am using.No problems so far.I liked the fact that the white servo wheels were pre-drilled.I didn't have to adjust anything to hook up the linkages.But I also found out that Futaba servo wheels will not work on the Hobbico Hi-Torq servo.They will strip out every time.The output shaft is just a little smaller than Futaba.I figure the 1/4 servos are the same way but I am not sure.

Than you guys. I have taken it all apart and found that like the shocks I should have taken it apart before I ran it.Oh well live and learn.
