    What servo?

    What would be a good high speed single servo that won't draw too much amps? I don't want to add a external bec. Thanks

    stick with a hitec . i went with a 7950th but that's a little overkill

    I went with a hitec 7954sh and wired it for a bec so it gets full speed. After installing this... i kinda wish i had gone faster. It was $90 from Amazon.

    try Ebay
    Savox or Hitec & see what you want to spend & how much torque you need.

    Just remember that the stockers are 125 inoz each. So any servo @ 250 inoz or higher you will be good.
    If you spend that much for a 7950, might as well spend another $20.00 and get the full 7.4v out of it..
    Would you go flip my truck back over??

    So I'm more confused now than when I posted. If I use a 7950 will I have to run a bec? I want the know the best single servo I can run without adding anything else. Thanks and sorry I'm a noob to servos

    sorry that you are confused, but this might not help either..

    I would say yes you would need a EXT 10 amp BEC with the 7950.......


    check the specs, the MMM BEC puts out 5.5v

    then do the same with Hitec, just hit Ebay & start checking specs.

    also keep in mind you will need a different servo arm for the Hitec...

    Like I posted look for a servo in the 250 inoz plus torque. Much more then that you will need the EXT BEC..

    333 inoz at 6v IDK might not need a Ext BEC, might not need anything or might just get buy with a glitch buster..

    Yes... but a little silicone & some grease & you can waterproof a servo, from water splashes..

    search waterproof, non are strong enough, for just one servo.

    The 7950 works fine without the bec don't worry about it
    I ran one only for the extra torque which you don't really need took it off for my e maxx with a savox servo that needed it

    403 ounces is plenty of power for the revo
    The 7950 has 8 o rings for water, fuel and dust protection
