    analog and digital servos.

    Does anyone know if it would be a bad idea to run a digital servo and an analog servo together in the same circuit, like plugging one of each into the two channel #1 slots on a summit receiver?

    I am thinking its a bad idea, would anyone care to back me up on this?

    If one servo has even a slight bit more throw than the other, they will be fighting with each other, even if they are centered when straight ahead.

    I should have been more specific

    I am using a single servo set up for the front, other servo is to be for the rear.

    I ordered a pair of Kershaws Designs metal geared high torque servos(which are o-ring sealed btw), but in the mean time I completely fried my traxxas servos and installed a digital Hi-Tec 7980th monster torque servo in the front. I planned to install one the Kershaws servos in the rear but when they arrived I realized they are analog. guess they will go on the hobby shelf for a while, until my sons E-maxx needs them.

    If they're two completely separate servos, then I don't think there'd be an issue with it.
