Default opposite servos

Have heard that some servos by different manufactures move in the opposite direction.I use futaba and hitec and would like to know what servos move opposite of these. Thanks for any help with this.

I don't have an answer to your question, but reversing a servo is very easy if you can handle a soldering iron. Reverse the two outside lines on the pot and reverse the two lines on the motor.

Sorry but I gotta expand on the original question a little bit if I may... Why would it ever matter? You would NEVER want to mix servos of different manufacturers or even different models from the SAME manufacturer on the same control surface so why does it really matter?

I really don't "get" the question. Can you give us some context here? I'm sure we could regirgitate to you what turns clockwise by default and what turns counter-clockwise by default but the smart thing to do is to first discourage you from doing something you should never do regardless of servo direction.

I was thinking of not having to use a servo reverser. and i mix servos all the time. such as hitec futaba hobbico jr and have had no problems. IT was just an idea. and is there such servos?

Lonnie Thanks for your help

You already have some that move opposite, Hitec turns one direction and Futaba turns the other with the same change in input.

I think you would be able to get a reversed servo if you ordered it from Hitec.
