    Got some new servos solar d772

    Just wanted everyone to know the solar d772 servos on hobbypartz work great. I installed two onto my summit and added 2 glow plug washers to my servo saver. After 6 sets of battery's these servos work great! Check em out. I'm looking know to water proof them, looking for the best rIght way.

    Thanks for the update.
    I am giving my Blue Bird's 30 days to come into stock then I am cancelling that order and getting the Solars.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Forgot to mention the summit servo horns do not fit I used the provided horns I cut one side of with dremel. Any thoughts on aluminum horns? Don't get me wrong the provided horns are stronger than summits stock horns.

    I did the same thing, brailman. Cut off one side of the included horn with a dremel - works great. I love the extra torque.

    p.s. I waterproofed mine by filling them up with grease. If water can't get in, it's waterproof!
    I may just hit the screws/seams with some liquid electrical tape to play it safe, though.

    I know that mine are still going strong, and have proven time and again that they are indeed better than the stockers when crawling. I'd like to have quieter servos, but I wouldn't like to pay 5x the price for comparable performance!

    I felt the same way,until I tried a hitec.
    I see why they cost more.precise to say the least,and I'm getting more steering throw and faster.i got a good deal on mine half price, used once in a crawler
    The 767 hv I was running is not even close.it says it has more torque but
    This hitec kills it hands down

    Yes and no....I have been through a few
    Of the "less expensive"shall we say ones,well a bunch of them.
    Still $17 worth a try I agree.
    After some climbs with the hitec I see why they cost more.

    Yes... 400+ inch-ounces is plenty.

    What Jamann is/was getting at is that sometimes inexpensive servo ratings are inconsistent and fudged to make them look better than the name brand pricey ones.

    That being said I have a $18 772 in my MT4 and a $62 35A in my Summit... I am more pleased with the 772's performance.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Have to completely agree with jamann here. I have had a few cheaper servos in my Summit. Mixed results. I even had a Savox 1230SG in there with its 500oz-in of torque from my CC BEC, and I have to say the new Hitec I have in my Summit now is just hands down a class above (my Savox burnt up under the stress of rock crawling I put it under). The Hitec has been abused and it keeps coming back for more and more. I am a complete believer in Hitec now. I fought it...but I am now squarely on the Hitec band wagon.

    Glad to hear others are having good luck with Solar and Savox and other brand servos. Just the luck wasn't in the cards for me with those brands of servos, and I wish I would of laid out the extra money for the Hitec from the beginning. Just my personal experience.

    Keeping my fingers crossed that my good fortune with Hitec will keep on keeping on.
