Installed in my yeti, waiting on Bell cranks from VP now. Also have to get a aluminum servo horn.

Haven't had a chance to test. Waiting on VP bell crank. The servo saver is so soft the front wheels don't return to center. I will. Probably lock the saver till the Bell cranks come. I will report after some testing. Like all the other first impressions its really smooth and quiet, and well made.

Especially all but a day after you got the thing. HiTec's track record has a history. Try to at least give this new thing some time before you say things like that maybe.
Fact! Probably 98% of new parts, rigs etc are all the most baddest assest this g to hit the market evar! For a week or so then all the new wears off.

And no HiTec doesn't sponsor this site, so try again.

Right again. I don't even like hitec since I've had terrible luck with their servos but I'm not going to tell anyone they're ripping people off because there are cheaper products out there. That's just dumb.

Well after a day of bashing in the yeti I have no complaints. Servo held up to some punishment at a construction site. Rocks, sand, dried mud, concrete. Obviously time will tell if the durability is there but so far so good

I've thoroughly mistreated mine this weekend, including about a dozen runs through my mud pit, servo fully submerged, and it hasn't missed a beat.

You can just make out the servo beneath all the muck it picked up...

Mine handled NAVEX without a hiccup. My own hiccup was my lack of driving skill

I have zero complaints so far, but can't make a judgement based on one hard day out.

I've got another brand new one and a set of gears for spares. Don't think I'll need to use them on this rig for a lonnnng time.

Think I'm going to pick one up, is that a v2 or v3? Did it fit right in your wraith?

Mine is the V3 and I'm using a DeWanger servo mount but it'll fit the stock mount as well.

Yup, 7.2v will work just fine and it definitely needs the BEC. Keep us posted on how it works out!

Yep Bec at 7.4 you will be fine. V3 fits wraith and scx10 without modification.

I can vouch for the servo. I witnessed Scott's Wraith take many tumbles and no breakages. Seems like a solid product.

Couldn't have been more than my mate Stephen. Amazed he didn't break anything.

Mate throw that nimh battery in the bin and buy yourself a 2S lipo. Will last longer and be more powerful. If you are running 2S or 7.2v nimh you won't even need a bec with this. The maker suggest powering the servo directly off the battery. If you upgrade to 3S you will need a bec.

How quiet is this Servo. Dose it make the constant centering sound like hitec?

No. It is the quietest servo I have ever heard, (or not heard) no electrical sound interference at all. The only sound is the gears, which are quiet compared to most.

It's silent and stationary at center and does not hum under load, at least not that I can hear.
