Default How many degrees of rotation available from average servos?

How many degrees of rotation ( neutral to one endpoint ) does the average non retract servo provide?

I am assuming that the ATV on the transmitter is set at +/- 100%.


Thanks,

+/- 50 degrees

Hitech digital servos go +/- 90 degrees but I don't know where you would actually use the entire range.

Most of the servos list their rotation....and 60 degrees seems quite common for some (logical?) reason.

I think it's because most linkages won't give you any more throw past 60 degrees. On my Edge, anything pasty 55-60 degrees and the up elevator throw starts going back towards center. So the limit is the linkage geometry not the servos.
