Default Hobbieco servo replacement parts.


I have a Hobbieco CS-67 servo with a broken mounting tab. Anyone know where I can get a replacement case top?

I tried Tower Hobbies but they have no cases.

Did a search of RCU with no results.

Well then, looks like I'll just be gluing this thing to it's side on a wing servo plate.

Sorry i can't help out but at least what you second post said you should have sorted it out anyways,if you don't want to trust that why not just buy another servo and make sure it's a well known one that you can get parts for if you need them.

I don't know if they have them, but contact the folks at Hobby services directly

Just because it isn't on tower doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

Your right and Hitec servos fit that bill. A Hobbico CS-67 is the same servo as a HS-425BB. I found a replacement case for the HS-425BB. It's $4 plus $6 S&H.

Since a new servo is only $13 I think it would be better just a get a new one and put the broken one in the good replacement parts bin.

Kind of reminded me of the old days at the camera store telling people that it's going to cost $250 to fix their $50 point N' shoot camera.

That shipping is what does it. I wonder how all those compaies selling .99 stuff on ebay from China can offer free shipping?

I know the part was only one cent to make but the free shipping to the US from China?
