Default Astro Flight Servo Tester

A friend of mine has a Astro Flight Servo Tester and I think I would like to have one but it appears that they are no longer available, what is everyone else using?

I just picked this one up. It'll be here tomorrow and I'll let you know how it works.

I received it yesterday and tried it out on a known dead servo. Yup. It was dead and went to the trash. Next, on a known good servo. This unit works as advertised. I can now finally set the flaps correctly on my sailplane. Great little unit for the money.

If you really want a good servo tester/pulse measurement device, get a Vexa ServoXciter.

The Vexa is way past just good and its expensive if i'm only testing one or two servos a year. Budget CellMeter 8 has served me fine.

You're right, of course. You should purchase equipment that fits your needs. The Vexa is expensive, but I use nearly every feature and use it often, so consider it a bargain.
