Exclamation ProModeler Servo: 420oz, billet case, o-ringed, $79

anybody heard of these?

just got my AMA magazine(RC airplanes) and it had a full review on this servo that did really well in there servo test rig. got very high marks all around.











Nominal Voltage*: 6.0 - 7.4VDC
Operating Voltage: 5.5 - 8.4VDC
Torque: 380 - 420 oz-in
Speed: 0.14 - 0.12 sec/60
Frequency: 1520s/330Hz
Dead band: 2s
Weight: 73.5g
Wire: JR/265mm


The S420BLHV has been created expressly for competition pilots flying thousands of flights/year. Ideally suited to aileron, elevator, and rudder of giant scale models, e.g. 42% IMAC models. This servo centers beautifully, offers superb performance, and is the best we know how to make. In short, this is the top of the line ProModeler servo - no excuses.

Billet aluminum case - the entire case is CNC-machined from a solid billet of 6061-T6 aircraft-aluminum. End of story.
- Heavy duty dual ball bearing supported output gear with CNC-machined case sections.


Gear train-all metal gears makes this servo strong. The 25-spline (5.96mm) output shaft is Futaba compatible for convenience. Material selection makes it tough. For an 800% increase in wearing surface hardness, we use exotic titanium-ceramic (TiCN) armoring for the 7075-T6 output gear (this is the exact same aluminum-alloy used in components of the upper receiver of an M-16 rifle). Intermediate gears are made of 4140 chrome-moly steel. The result is optimum strength and wear characteristics for high precision and long life.

- TiCN/7075-T6 output, 4140 chrome-moly steel intermediate, plus 7075-aluminum/4140-steel input-gear


O-rings - have you noticed how some really expensive servos don't have o-rings? The claim is electric models make them superfluous. Since getting caught in a pop-up rain shower isn't unheard of, and re-purposing servos into a nitro-powered model a year later happens all the time . . . do you buy that line of reasoning? We figure it's because the manufacturer pockets a few extra bucks - but leaving o-rings out comes at your expense because keeping water, fuel, and exhaust residue out of your servo is important. Wanna know why the S420BLHV is fully o-ringed? Simply because our engineers make these decisions instead of our accountant.

- Water resistant case features o-rings beneath the bearing, screw heads, and between case sections.


Nitty gritty - it's said the measure of a man is what he does when nobody is looking - take our servo's measure the same way. Ever disassemble a servo? They typically use four long-ass Phillips head screws, which come up from the bottom, sandwich the center section, and actually thread into the plastic top-case, right? However, an S420BLHV is built better. How? To begin, we use grade 12.9 Allen-head machine-thread bolts instead of el cheapo screws. Six come in from the top plus four more from the bottom, and instead of sandwiching the center case, the ten bolts actually thread into the aluminum. The result is a far more rigid assembly that's so much better . . . it's not even fair to compare!

Packaging - nestled within a high density foam insert for protection, each S420BLHV servo arrives packed in a jewel case. Since good looks never hurt, we laser-etch our logo into the polished aluminum case. These servo look great - think in terms of the fit and finish equal to, or better than, servos selling for more than $200. Bottom line? For the craftsmen who appreciates our high standards because we pay attention to the smallest detail, we hope you'll be as proud to install them in your model as we are to make them.

- Classic jewel case packaging with the servo snugly secured in a high density urethane foam insert

Must not be available yet, the website shows it but it won't open for this model S420BLHV. Looks like a great deal for $80 bucks? It sure wouldn't hurt to give it a try.

Got mine today. Very beefy looking servo. Need to do some testing later tonight or tomorrow. Overall first impression

How the servo working out for you so far? I'm in the middle of a build and considering this unit.

Curious about these servos as well. They look extremely beefy and are well priced.

ill be honest i liked the size and price of the V1 and V2 better.
realestate for a 1.9 CMS can get pretty tight.

Thats my only concern with the V3 as well. Hoping I have enough room under the hood!
