Are digital servos faster then analog
 
Guy, I just read up in the April 2007 issue of Model Aviation and they had an artical in there about servos written by dave patrick. I have a question that i cannot figuer out. He states in there that analog servos are faster then digital. Is this true? I have a Venus II with high end futaba digitals in it and they seem so much faster then my analogs. If they are slower then analog then why do we by them. I use them because they center great for pattern. Maybe somebody can clear this issue up for me.

There's fast analog servos and slow digital servos. In general digitals are faster.

BarracudaHockey is correct! Here is the "Gigantic Servo Chart" to prove it:

I use digitals because of their awesome holding power. I dread the high current drain. But, you have to take the good with the bad!

so... if you have an analog rated at .13 sec and a digital rated at .13 second...which one is faster?;)

I was wondering which one weighs more a pound of analog servos or a pound of digital?
