    need new servo

    I have heard of several servos that would work much better than the stock one which mine is done. I have heard that blue bird makes a nice servo, or i could go buy like two $8 dollar servos. What are you guys using.
    With great brushless comes great responsibility.

    Get yourself a Hitec and you'll probably never have to worry about it again.
    Make it idiot-proof and along comes a better idiot

    Bluebird is a little stronger if you don't mind supporting the counterfeit company and have a few weeks to wait

    A little researching and I'm guessing the Bluebird 390 is what I need?

    Send me a PM with the info on who I need to order it from.
    or if you can't even post it in PM...send me a PM and I'll give you my cell number and you can text me the info.

    Basically what it boils down to...I want the best performing/most reliable servo I can get for my BB Revo.

    Well...here's what I'm thinking...
    The Corona is cheapest...but is really an "unknown" so far.
    The Bluebird has good reviews(her and elsewhere) but...


    When I Google search the Hitec 5085...I'm offered multiple places to purchase it from...even Amazon.
    I think the availability accounts for something.
    I've just about decided I'm going Hitec.

    i would do the hi-tech but $40 bucks is a lot of money for a mini servo

    Not if you only have to replace it one time.

Please show some respect for Traxxas and follow the spirit of the rule and simply DO NOT talk about the banned website or their products. If not more warning points are sure to follow

    Here's the best case scenario...
    Traxxas has a full line of upgraded performance parts.
    They need to develop a high speed metal gear waterproof replacement servo and offer it in the Traxxas store.
    Problem solved.

    The hitech servo is great but I had my 85-MG for a short period of time and stripped the one plastic gear in it. I was not happy. I have ordered corona servos for my son's and my truck but getting very sick of waiting. If I didn't loose my job a month ago I would have bought two more Hitech servos and been running my truck for the last 3 weeks!

    Saving money is fun but buying from the slowest company on earth is anoying. If you can afford it buy a hitech and you should be happy for a while! Maybe buy a cheap back up since they are only $10 or so shipped.

    Well I asked nicely but certain members just have to push things to the point that the thread gets locked.
