Default Re: Electronic Problems? You probably need an External BEC

Hello guys. I would like to ask you for your opinion to the following. I have just installed HH SHV500V3 servo to my 1/8 crawler (7-8 kgs) and I have the same problem with buzzing servo as many guys here so I would like to ask you or John to confirm me that it is normal for this servo and it will not affect the servo:-) ESC HW 1080, FS-GT5 combo, 3S Lipo.. When I turn the rig on, everything is ok, steering to the both sides is without problem but when I let the wheel go back to the neutral possition, servo still lightly buzzing - trying to go to the neutral possition. When I lift the rig, everything is OK with no buzz sound and the same when I go forward so it center the wheels.. so it seems it is becuase of weight/counterweight. I tried everything, center the servo, rebinding, check if everyting goes smoothly.. still the same.. and mainly when I turn slowly.. It seems it is becuase of the adhesion of wheels to the surface but.. I have 2 other digital servos and they don´t do that but they are not a high voltage/torque servos.. It is my first experience with this kind of servos so I prefer to ask before to wait and then solve a failure. thank you!

EDIT: I wrote to the HH support and they confirmed me it is normal..

Should I run a battery directly to the servo? If so, what all would I need, parts wise? This is the first time dealing with an external BEC. Just trying to figure out what would be best for my rig to get the most performance out of it.

Thanks,

I have a hobbywing 1080 esc and I am loosing my mind trying to figure out which servo to run with. Then I fell down the BEC rabbit hole and decided I think the best route is to go with something that powers directly from the battery. Seeing your set up, I think I am just going to add myself to the wait list for the SHV500v3. Are you happy with the set up?

Boomer,

Yes, I am most definitely satisfied with the setup. The servo was installed on my Trx-4 Sport kit and fit flawlessly. It provides a ton of torque and whips those 1.9’s around like a rag doll. The only thing that I have noticed is that it is louder than my other servos with a constant buzzing sound. That could also be due to this being my first “high-torque” servo so from what I understand, the louder buzzing sound is normal. Definitely not a negative thing though. Holmes Hobbies makes an amazing product and I would highly recommend. Hope that helps!

Thanks, I am on the waitlist so hopefully my patience will hold out. I appreciate the heads up on the buzzing. It may have concerned me if I didn't know it was normal. There was a similar question above from Billy_CZ regarding the buzz and he said HH confirmed that it is normal as well. So it looks like that will be the set up for me once it is available.

Thanks again

Thanks for the tip. I just ordered one from Team Garage Hack. I had not heard of them prior to your suggestion. Thanks again
