    Default Servo tip for beginners

    Buy good quality servos ! The difference is night and day between the medal and plastic geared models .

    All may seem fine with the plastic servos until they actually get used in a prop . You can waste a lot of time messing with code settings and just getting frustrated . Settings adjustments can smooth out some things but not all and definitely nothing like replacing the servo with quality . The old saying holds true .
    You gets whats you pays for !

    Give a listen to this servo compared to the plastic servo I used in the skull .

    I'm looking at getting started in servo props this year. Can you give some suggestions of good servos to purchase?

    These are 2 types I have tested so far .

    MG996R Metal Gear Torque Digital Servo >> Quite heavy duty
    MG90S Metal Geared Micro Servo >>> much better than the SG90 but still for light duty

    I just ordered a couple of these for heavier lifting .I hope I don't need to go even larger than these .
    Moving a wolf's head forward and back for a servo is tougher than I imagined .
