Default Rebuilding a servo??

This is a new item for these servos Multiplex Rhino / Hitec HS-5745MG Digital / Hitec HS-5735MG / Hitec HS-785HB / Hitec HS-765HB /Hitec HS-755HB / Hitec HS-705MG

Cooling is said to better..... So does it keep the servo cooler .....or make it look cooler

Art. 50725 VPE 1
Lauterbacher upper closer from aluminium for
Multiplex- and Hitec-servos. Improves the
cooling extremly. Recommended for off-road
and on-road competition-models 1/5 and 1/6.

Looks cool, hands down!

As for keeping the servo innards cooler, it totally depends on the ambient temp. If it is hotter outside, say 120degrees F in the desert, that heat will transfer right through the alloy straight into the servo innards. Now, if you are running outside ant it is cool or in the winter, that heat will be sucked straight out from the innards.

Just more BLING. I have never had a servo overheat,,Does it happen? I could buy a new servo for what that top piece is worth. I pay 70.00 canadian for a 5745 and the case top is just about 100.00, I won't be rushing out to buy any.

That is a really fast servo, 0.08 sec to traverse 60degrees.

When you say "our G2," I thought Hitec is Phillipino since your Hitec manufacturing factories are all there. Just curious, why did you guys choose to make them there whan you can go next door and make them in Malaysia?

I'll have to do more research on these guys. As for the EBay one, I unfortunately am beginning to tend to look at many of them as nothing more than internet rogues. And I am beginning to understand why RCU really frowns upon links to fleabay, too many RCU members with gripe stories to post. (I think it is wise for RCU to take this stance actually.)

Yes, there are many good guys who sell in fleabay, but unfortunately, there are way too many fleabay rogues too.

Mooman, you'd probably be better off going to http://www.greathobbies.com/producti..._id=HITHS5745S as they're located in Canada, and the price is $69.99 Canadian. I've had good experiences buying from them for a range of parts.
