    Best Steering Servo?

    I just stripped the gears in my stock servo, what is a god metal gear servo that will fit? Trying to keep it under $40.00. Thanks for your input

    Hitec 5085mg...pretty much right at your budget.
    There are other good options...but you'll have a pretty good chance of finding that one at a LHS and not having to wait forever to get one from an overseas supplier.

    I've heard of blue Bird being good. Where can I get one of those that will fit?

    You'll have to do an online search...you aren't going to find one in any hobby shops in the US.

    Corona mg238 is a good one. I have it and it is great for $10. But please for the love of sweet baby Jesus, use the search function. There are 1,234,456,345,456 threads about servos on here.

    Blue Bird 390 is a 95% drop in...
    all stock hardware is used, just install and reverse steering.

    Hitec 5080 is a 80% drop in...
    must use modified horn in package or buy new horn. It is also suggested to modify linkage.

    Corona 238 ??...
    not sure.


    Every servo above has many reported happy users.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Are any of these water proof or water resistant?

    BTW...if all that's wrong with the servo is stripped gears...they can be replaced.

    It is very easy to waterproof any servo.

    The Corona 238 is a great servo, I've been pounding on one for about 7 months now and it's holding up just fine. All of the gears are all metal, the Hitec 5085 still has one plastic gear.
