Default GWS NARO SERVO AS GOOD AS HITECH HS-55?

The GWS Servo Naro Pro Standard w/JR Plug cost only $11.38 from tower. This servo has more torque and cost less then Hitec HS-55.

I never owned GWS servo's before. Is this as good as the Hitec's?

I will never buy another HS55!!![:'(] Or 81 either. Every one I have ever had stripped just from a dirty look. GWS Naros on the other hand are excellent servos I have been using some of them for going on three years now with no failures or problems. I have around 15 of the GWS servos in use presently[sm=thumbup.gif][sm=thumbup.gif][sm=thumbup.gif]. Good price for a great product. I like their 6ch rx too.

I am currently using Expert SL260 on my autogyro. The gears are weak. The gear not only stripped, but broke! The gear which broke is almost identical to the one used on HS55. Horizon is currently out of stock on gear set for SL260 so I eneded up using the one from HS-55.

The measurement listed on Tower's website does not list the distance between the center hole mount for the GWS NARO PRO.

Can you please measure it?

I would... but why dis-assemble a working servo? [X(] For 12 bucks just replace it.

I am not asking to disassemble the servo.

What I am asking for is the 28.6mm screw mount length and 22.8mm case length as shown on the HS55 pdf file below.

http://www.hitecrcd.com/Servos/spec_sheets/hs55.pdf

I want to see if the holes will line up and if the case will go through my cutout for the servo. My local hobby shop does not carry this servo. I would have to mail order it.

Thanks.

Naro's seem great. Going to use them in a Eflite Mini Funtana, I think.... I bought their top of the line Naro, and wow, they're impressive. 24oz/in torque, .09-.10 speed. Excellent for aerobatics, and they're very light. That's 48 oz of torque, with a .10 servo, try to beat that with any other brand of standard servo in that size, or larger! A standard servo like that would cost about 50 dollars, except it'd probably win in precision and instant response (digitals...) I spent $24 for two! Secret: Todds Models. JR makes an excellent digital, but it's better in something that doesn't need to be so fast, they've got more sudden response, but they are .25 seconds in speed!

The few GWS Naro’s we've used worked without issue.

HS-55's are used in our foamies with nary a problem too. Josh and I probably go through more foamies in a season than most modelers will in a lifetime. We rarely damage gear-trains, maybe three times this year... I believe there quite robust for the abuse we've garnered on them.

I have used GWS Naros for years and they are one of the best servos made. Never had a bad one or a problem with any.
My favorite is the Naro HPBB. The quality is excellent.
My 2 cents worth.
Cheers
Paul
