Default RE: Karbonite gears

Karbonite is a composite. Most servos nowadays either have either nylon, metal, or composite gears. All of them work.

My Hitec with karbonite gears have worked great. I chose to use them in places where nylon might be stressed a bit much. All the Hitec servos with karbonite gears are listed as Helicopter-Boat or HeavyDuty servos. I took that to suggest they're stronger than nylon, not as hard as metal, and lighter than metal. Helos and boats have a lot more shake in them than airplanes, another reason to figure they're better.
