Default What the newest cheap servo hotness?

I'm down to my last D772 and I'm on the hunt for something more up to date and cheap. Suggestions?

Cheap servos end up costing more cash in the end. Grab something around $100 and stop buying 6 $20 pieces of shit every year.

I know the argument, and I've got the more expensive servos where I need them.

You need decent servos pretty much everywhere.


The only junk servo I'm running is the stock as3 or whatever the older wraith came with. I'm waiting for it to sizzle since I'm running it in the snow.

Grab a promodler for $80, Savox 1283s are in the same price range and take a serious beating.

If you're dead set of cheap junk snag a hitec 645, it's about as craptastic as I'm willing to go anymore. I've burned up easily $1000 worth of cheap and not so cheap servos and I'm finally over it.

I don't think anything in the $25 range has come along that's better than the Solar D772. I still use them in my scalers and I've never killed one.

Why are you looking to move away from the D772?

I'm always killing gears in the 772. Not a big deal to replace them I suppose.


Just wondering if anything new has come along. I'm not as up-to-date on things as I used to be.

I have not seen anything even close, in terms of torque, near the $25 mark. If somebody else knows of one I'm willing to try something new. I tried a CYS servo, with probably half the torque, and that POS stripped during the test run in my kitchen.

Every one of my 772's have the stop pin removed from the output gear so it can be installed 180* out after stripping a few teeth off.

I have been running this in my emaxx for a little while now and it's by no means a powerhouse but for what I use them for they work great. I have 3. http://m.banggood.com/JX-PDI-6221MG-...-p-973947.html

towerpro mg958 20 kg torque metal gears metal case

you did say cheap ....
these are not cheap but rather inexpensive
but for the money and as much as I drive cannot be beat
I use them doubled up to double the torque - 40 kg for 20 bucks ?

I've had my eye on that one, but I haven't seen them that cheap. Where did you get it?

I've got a servo extension lead out of my watertight reciever box and I use......... towardpro mg996r ! Bit of silicon round the seal and grease on the gear and it's happy days. 4 for 13 and when one goes pop after a few months I just pop another on. No dramas. I've had them last 6 months. I'm a trails / water / mudder and they suit me fine.

I did a search on HobbyKing and found a few good looking options. Here's the list starting with 24kg-cm (333 oz-in) and ending with 35.5kg-cm (493 oz-in). Most are not in the same, low price range as the Solar D772 though.
