    Your avarage servo

    posted by kirovclass on 10/26/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    The servo has a fairly strong torque and it's made in metal. As it is not too tiny, it's relatively simple to attach it.
    Cons:
    I notice that in some occasions it is overshooting a little bit, probably because the whole gear system must be quite heavy.
