Default hitec servo

I wanted to purchase some hitec servos. D-645MW, I read a review that stated he liked them however was disappointed because they came with plastic arms and that the arms could not be changed out to metal. Either side or push/pull.
Does anyone know if this is true. I tried to contact Hitec but no answer for two days. They are 25T. Thank you.

It may be he had some metal arms with the wrong tooth count. Not all Hitec servos use the same thing.

That’s sounds very possible, basically as long as the arm is a 25T this particular servo can be changed using 25T metal arms ?

Whomever wrote that review didn't do their homework. As stated, the splines are 25t, and any 25t arm(metal or plastic) will fit. Futaba is also 25t, so any Futaba arm will fit.

Also, I can tell you the D-Series Hitecs are a very nice servo. They took what was already a good servo and made it better.
