Default Futaba S3114 servo reviews?

I am a JR and Hitec servo user but I ran across this servo by Futaba(S3114 Micro HT) and was wondering if anyone has had good or bad luck with it? It seems like a pretty decent servo for the price. I will be using it in a small 480 size electric.

Thanks,
Tony

Hey Tony

I see no one replied to your post on the 3114s. All I can give is what I know.

I recently built a Cermark Lil' Banchee. I have HS55s for the ailerons and the 3114s for rudder and elev. I like the centering and speed of the 3114s better. To me, it just seems to be a better servo. I know others may disagree as this is my preference. Since Tower has them for the same price (and even if the 3114s were a dollar, or two. more) I will buy the 3114s from now on.

Hope this helps,

Doug

I just installed them on a Herr Little extra instead of the HT55. For the $$ a much better deal-same price, faster, more torque and the seem to work very well. Only had the plane up three times but perform super. I'm typically all Hitec but these can't be beat. Only thing I liked more about the 55's is a little longer servo lead. Go for it

I know this an old thread but looking for life and reliability experience with the 3114. I used to use the Tower Pro servos as I had good luck with them but the latest ones are not good at all, wearing out after about ten flights. The old style Tower Pro's lasted for years. at any rate, please share your experience with the 3114 as is a drop in replacement.
