    spectrum servo

    I saw this Spectrum servo in the LHS today . Model A5030 looks like a good buy for Q500

    RE: spectrum servo

    I picked up two at the LHS. Same mounting pattern as the JR3021 or JR Sport MN48. I had set up a new plane for the MN48's, bought a couple of these new ones for aileron / elevator duties.

    At 6.0 V regulated, they were jumpy when moving - jumping back and forth up to 10 degrees or so while moving. Once stopped, they didn't dance around, but they were sure unstable when moving.

    I took them back to the LHS. They tried them at 4.8V, no problems. Tried them on a 2 cell LiFe battery (~6.6V) and they jumped around when moving. I traded them toward the ESC and stuff I needed to finish my E-Flite Pogo.

    I'd sure like to hear others' experience with them. I would love to be able to buy a nice fast digital servo for 20 bucks, but I've been running 6V batteries for a few years now, and am not looking to switch back.

    No matter where you go, there you are!

    RE: spectrum servo

    Darn, sorry to hear that.  I bought b10 of the new H5000 and they are rock steady at the 6V.  But, I have $44/ea delivered to the door and the new A5030 really looked promising.  I would hope you would drop Horizon a line and they will get it worked out as a digital servo for pylon racing for around $20 would be great!!

    RE: spectrum servo

    If i get a chance next week i might give them a call. For now i traded them back to the lhs, but i too would love to have an inexpensive digital mini servo! Depending on what i hear, i would not be opposed to buying some again. Might just set my regulator to five or five and a half volts, should have thought of that sooner
