Default Best cheap Servo?

Sup , some of yall have probably seen it before but do you guys think that the Blue Bird BMS-630MG servo is still the best cheap servo it puts out 195 oz/in of torque and a speed of 0.15 sec/60 degrees. Plus, it has dual ball bearings and metal gears, all for $32. if anyone knows af a better and cheaper one please let me know( its for revo single steering) ThX

I have been using these servos since this spring and I love them.... They are excellent quality, very precise, and very powerful. There is nothing better for the price and I will be buying another set for my T-maxx come winter[8D]

Blue Bird servos are great for the money.

Chris1070, where are you getting them from? and if its for a revo then they might not work unless your radio has EPA on it. I have 2 blue bird servos, the 620 and 660 (but thats the old 660 so its weaker and slower then the new ones, and the 660 is the same as the 630 just the 660 has heatsinks) the thing about the blue birds is you need the EPA on your radio or your going to burn them up, because the servo turns farther then the car dose so when the car turned all the way the servo is still trying to turn and will burn the up.

That holds true for more than just the Blue Bird servos. I have my EPA set to about 60% with my Hitec servo for steering.
