Default Acoms Servos

I just bought a Cermark Javelin II (BEAUTIFUL plane) it came with Acoms AS-12 servos installed and I can't find any info on them. All I have found are European e-comm sites that sell them, but no info on if they are any good.

Has anyone had any experience with these servos?
Should I look at them the same as Cirrus servos (throttle only)?
I have found out that the output shaft takes a JR arm. I am contemplating pulling them and replacing them with JR servos.

Ideas? Comments?

Acoms was the previous name for sanwa and then airtronics so you might want to ask them.

I'll have to look into that.

I pulled four of the five and replaced them with JR 517's. The one Acoms I left in is on throttle and it won't run it's range of motion accurately. I think they'll wind up in the Swap Shop.

Thanks for the info.
