Default Inexpensive Servos from hong kong

I just read an ad today in RC Universe for low cost, high torque servos offered by a Pro Seller. They were listed for $20 ea.
Yesterday I ordered the same from the site listed below. Price was $7.97. I ordered four, and the shipping was about $14.

A few months back I ordered four standard servos from them. I have not had them in a plane yet. They are noisey, but appear to center and are not too slow. So FYI.

Oh you poor guy :-)

Those are the infamous MG995 servos that have been universally slammed by almost everyone who's ever used one.

Do a search here for MG995 and just read all about them.

Some folks find them okay for buggies but I would never, ever recommend them for use in an airplane.

Unfortunately United Hobby's selective editing of feedback has removed all the bad reviews these servos got -- which kind of makes the review system on that site worse than useless.

Always check the web *before* you buy!
