Default RE: Servo Question

Umm.... a high torque servo has.... high torque.... and a high speed servo has.... high speed.....

haha just kidding, you knew that...

Seriously though....a servo designated as high torque will have an emphasis on torque, with speed being secondary, and so will usualy be stronger, but a little slower than other servos in its class/price range. For example, a hitec hs645MG has 133oz inches torque, and .2 seconds transit speed. (at 6 volts)... thats great tourqe for a $35 servo, but the speed is nothing to write home about. in the same price range is the hitec 625MG high speed servo... its quite a bit faster at .15, but only has 94 oz/in torque.... (also at 6v)
