Savox SC-1268SG High Voltage Servo Review
When you are putting together a new plane, there are a lot of questions you need to ask yourself. One of the biggies you will ask is, "What servos should I choose?" Although items like power plant and guidance are also important areas, your servos are a very important when it comes to the final performance of your new aircraft. Servos will decide if your plane will perform precisely. Servos will decide if your plane will perform reliably. Servos will decide if your plane will fly great, and consistently great every single time you bring it to the flying field. For me, Savox is my servo of choice. Savox produces high quality, high performance servos for nearly every application, at very competitive prices.
I was recently putting together a second Extreme Flight 78" Extra 300. For servos, I chose the Savox SC-1268SG High Voltage servos. These servos are equipped with an aluminum midriff case for efficient cooling, and produce 347 oz/in of torque at a zippy 0.11 seconds speed. These servos produce more than enough torque for this application and are insanely quick as well. They center perfectly every time, and are SiiiCK on 7.4 volts! Also, good luck finding another name brand servo with similar specifications for under $100. The Savox SC-1268SG is only $92.99!
But enough blabbering about specifications! Let's let the servos do the talking!
