Default Hitec Servo Opinions - Thanks

Guys,

I know that you folks use and abuse your servos more than anyone else, so which of these two servos would you prefer. The Hitec 7954SH or the 7985MG. The application doesn't matter - I'm really interested in your opinion of centering and lasting over time.

No need for servo or brand wars. I just want opinions on which of THESE two you prefer.

Thanks,

Gene

Hover259, thanks for the thought. I'm going with the 7954SH - found a good deal on them.

I use the 7985 for throttle on my gas planes. Works great. I use the 7955 instead of the 7954. Much better gear train (titanium).

Thanks Joe,

I think the 7954 is an economical version of the 7955. I've really liked the 5945, then the 7985. I just got a good deal on 4 of the 7954 and I'll put them to the test next flying season.
