How about some reviews on some smaller servos?

I realise you dont fly much smaller stuff, but some reviews of of some smaller servos, say 9-20gram would be very interesting Bruce.

There are a bunch out there now, some are poo, some are awesome. Be good to have a shoot-out :ugeek:

I've got my servo test-rig all ready to go so I'll throw as many servos (of all shapes and sizes) on it as I can.

Takes a while to knock all the numbers into graphs and lay them up for the web though.

I've got some HXT900s HXT500s HDs and a few other smaller servos here so I'll start with those.

Yeah, it'd be nice if the weather cooperated or I had a heated/lighted workshop :-)

I picked up some of those HXT900 servos on your recommendation hope they are keepers. I have a Herr Rally XP to build this winter and I hope they are the right size for it. :)

Based on your recommendation a lot of the guys at the club are using those 900 servos from HK , they use them mostly on 3D foamies that are a scratch built club design.

I'd like to request a review for 12g HENGE servo's, I've heard good things. They would make a good digital, metal gear, ball bearing upgrade to the HXT900's. I'll buy a few next week and let you know how they go.
The HK-933 and HK-922 appear to be a rebranded henge 933 and 922. Be interesting to put them side by side on bruce's test bench, but the spec's listed are the same.

I have used HXT900's and HXT500's for a while now, they are incredibly good for the price. Smooth, accurate and Never had one fail or DOA and if it did, they're inexpensive enough to throw away.

Only problem I have found is that the spline gets a little play in both types after many hard flights or a few knocks to the control surfaces, (especially the 500's), which is to be expected as they have no bearing, only a bushing.
After 60 3D flights in a scratch built Extra300, (900g AUW, 43") I have found a tiny bit of play in 3 of the 4 HXT900s. I should probably be using a 12g metal gear for this application as it wears out the HXT900's pretty quick. But they stood up to the punishment and are still quite flyable. Flew them yesterday. And I certainly got my $3 worth from each one!
