View Full Version : Digital servo question...
I am using a Hitec HS 5925MG digital servo for steering.
My question is to anyone that is using or has used one.
Is it normal for the servo to buzz at a high pitch when operated?
Normal servos will buzz, but this thing squeels!!

Roy, it is completely normal for that "singing" those are the servos that i have standardized on. you cannot beat the performance. they are called high speed servos .08 secs! but check out the torq! wow! also notice that those specs are if you are using a 5 cell recharge (5x1.2=6.0 volts) or (alkaline 4x1.5=6.0 volts). now, my brother cannot take the singing. his loss! Also, Hitec makes a servo tester/programmer that is way cool. mine just came in to the lhs (my 'other' sponser) and it tests your digital (hitec) servos and also (this is the good part) lets you program your servos so that they are now 'fail-safed' without a failsafe. in other words, you can program your digi servos to go to a specific position when you get glitched. you boght the best servo for the money since they are guarenteed not to break... best warrenty in the business. Now, you need to make your upper chassis be able to handle the slightly different offset of the mounting holes for these babies!
Thanks for the input guys!
I am using the Trinity NiMH hump pack so the thing is crazy fast!
I am used to the HS 625 and 645 servos. I thought they were fast LOL

yeah, they are "Show-Off" fast! when other people huddle around your truck as you flick the servos from side to side. You have the ultimate trick setup with the Lynx 3d Transmitter and Novak receiver.... NO Crystals! and now fast servos. i went with the same setup and i went with those servos for both steering and throttle! you get hundreds of e-mails but i e-mailed you about a year ago on the upper chassis 'fit' problem. in the end i just screwed in the screws and forced the servo to fit. how did you do it with the servo mounts not quite right?
Actually I didnt have any troubles with it fitting:confused:
I remember you asking about that.
