Good option for a cheap high-torque servo – MG995 Tower Pro Servo Reviews

posted by pjwerneck on 08/21/2010 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
All metal gears
Very strong, good torque
Cheap
Cons:
May overshoot and produce a lot of electrical noise when moving.
I recommend
Other:
I miss some other adapters for the shaft, like a circle-shaped.
More than once I got some MG995s with slightly different shaft from each other, and the adapter from some other won't fit smoothly. Don't mix them if you get more than a few.
Cheap servos usually have very short wires. These, and most of the TowerPro servos have long wires. This was one thing that made me choose them over other cheap servos for projects with a low budget.
Bottomline:
I'm into hobby robotics and most of the time with a low budget. This is the one I always get when I need a high torque servo and I never regret.
If you need a strong and cheap servo for toys, robots or any project which doesn't have any critical parts and will be under constant monitoring, I recommend these with no second thoughts.
