    Gasser Throttle Servo???

    I am asking for good sources for a gasser throttle servo. I have installed a brand new spektrum digital (CHEAP) servo on my fire wall of my H9 33% Edge w/ brison 100cc. Killed the servo in 1 flight. I am hearing conflicting stories on MG servos for the throttle??? Any input here would be great.

    Oh yeah...for those that were wondering what happened to the throttle when it failed....Yeah, Stuck WOT for 15 min's until I lost the 2 top cowell screws due to the intense 15 min's of WOT and ate the cowell to stop the engine.....Dead sticked it in. That was an intense 15 min's trying to keep the air speed to a minimum.....we got pretty good at flat spins tho!

    RE: Gasser Throttle Servo???

    I use Hitec MG servos for the throttle on all my gas planes.

    RE: Gasser Throttle Servo???

    If you read the advice given by Quique Simozimi he reccomends not using digital servos, because of thier constant referencing back to the servo position and therefore draining the battery uneccesaraly, he reccomends a good analog servo.

    And a radio controlled kill switch, or a servo operated choke.

    RE: Gasser Throttle Servo???

    All,
    I go with Baldeagle in that I use a fast analog non-digital servo on throttle and choke. However last weekend I got up to the flight line and flip flip flip and no start. Seems the choke servo went out leaving the choke in operative. I am wondering since both throttle and choke servos were in stalled fresh overhaul from the factory at the same time, if I should replace the throttle servo just to be safe. ? Hmmm good question.

    Servo Specs

    Airtronics 94151 High Speed MOS Fet Pro servo
    96 oz/in at 6 vdc at .07 speed. at the time these
    were about $90 servos.

    I have some DS 821 JR sport digitals but I'm afraid to use them because
    of the splines popping off under load. I hate to waste an 8611a on throttle
    and choke.

    I have some 8611's laying around. I would like to swap one in just to see the speed difference. I just have a 148 on there now.

    RE: Gasser Throttle Servo???

    I"ve used 148's before, and now I'm using a Hitec 545 I believe the number is. It's a 5 pole motor analog servo with nylon gears. Centers very well...Over 300 flight on the 545 with no problems.

    Maybe you should think about a ignition kill switch for the future.

    RE: Gasser Throttle Servo???

    Yeah....It was good but the engine is a Brison single cylinder 100cc! She's a shaker! Big difference from my twins or even my g62 singles.....The brison makes fairly good power tho. I'm sure I will need to pick the very best option in this perticular bird with the Brison. I was shocked that all it took was one flight to kill that digital servo.

    Thats basically what I had in my bird. It was a standard spektrum digital with nylon gears. It failed within one flight.

    RE: Gasser Throttle Servo???

    I've run from Hitec 225 mg's up to JR 8611's for metal geared, and JR 4721 and 8411 for nylon geared. No throttle servo failures to date. In performance I prefer the coreless or the digitals because the throttle and the flight surfaces are similarly timed. With the analogs I note a lag betwen the throttle response and the surface responses. Seems I can never get the two in sync with the analogs. The small mini servos that are used for electrics are definately a no go.

    As for increased battery drain with a digital throttle servo, just how much of an increase are we talking about here? If I can get 4 to 5 flights a day over a couple of days out of a single 4,800mAh flight lithion and a 2,400mAh ignition lithion who cares about the difference? I have to charge the mini battery JR puts in the 9303 long before I have to charge the plane.

    I like Hitec 5945's. Got them in two planes and work great (one of them for a year, many many flights on a ZDZ 50 NG).

    I don’t think its battery drain alone. A digital servo for a lack of better description has for example a hundred positions for the 60 degrees of throw. An analog servo has an infinite amount of positions.

    This relates; kind of like the heli guys would never use a ratchet throttle on their radios, and a lot of 3d airplane pilots don’t use the ratchet either.

    RE: Gasser Throttle Servo???

    I don't see that excess drain at all with digital servos on the throttle. Also there are no infinite positions with anything unless you have a analog transmitter (if one exists). Our transmitters and receivers only have so many steps in position (resolution). Lastly the analog servo is only so precise so the infinite positions is limited by the servo error. Even analog sytems have error. I would bet that the digital servo is more precise than an analog unless the analog is a really good quality one (i.e precise).

    RE: Gasser Throttle Servo???

    Which is one of several reasons we went to "digital" servos in the first place. Better resolution, better centering, higher starting and holding torque, and consistent speeds. You don't need a digital on a throttle, but I sure notice the lag when I don't have one.

    RE: Gasser Throttle Servo???

    I have used 645 mg 5945mg and one nylon. The nylon worked for 4 flights. I always use metal gear servos now and lately Digital servos only, throttle and choke as I use the choke as my second method of shutting off the engine. This came in really handy when my throttle servo went to sh8t.

    RE: Gasser Throttle Servo???

    I used to use the Hitec 5245 mini MG but I realized that I didn't want to lose a throttle servo ever so I went with the 5945 for the added insurance. I doubt I will ever lose my throttle control with one of these.

    RE: Gasser Throttle Servo???

    I hope you have not got a reed induction engine, because if you use the choke often as a means of cutting the engine you will fray the reeds, also with the engine on WOT you could hydrolock the engine which could bend the conrod, this is posted just for information.
