Description: Here is a simple, low-cost, high quality servo for all your mechatronic needs. This servo is very similar in size and specifications to the Hitec HS-55. This little guy is able to take in 6 volts and deliver 20.8 oz-in. of maximum torque at 0.10 sec/60°
This small servo comes with a standard 3 pin power and control cable, and all hardware listed below.
Note: This servo is rated for 180° rotation, but in actuality it only hits ~160°.
Based on 3 ratings:
It has a hard time staying in position, it’s shaking out of control rendering it unusable.
Servo jitters severely around 0 position and makes lots of noise. Also the terminals and wire seem a bit flimsy. I would trust this servo in $5 pan tilt bracket but NOT in a $200 model airplane!
Hi, Sorry about the issues. If you need a more reliable servo for high value projects, I would recommend a higher grade servo such as the HiTec servos. They are much more reliable than the generic servos. But the generic servos are great when you need a low dollar servo for your applications. Thanks for the feedback!
