Default Servo's



just checking if anyone has any suggestions on what servos i should get to replace the stocks in my redcat rs10 ? keep in mind i am not going into any competitions or anything like that so i would like something that is not to pricey.

Thanks in advance for any help

Get some Savox 0251mg's. They produce 222oz of torque and only cost about 35 dollars. The only issues you might have are they don't work well when powered off a esc and they are about 1/4 inch taller.

what do you mean when you say power off from the esc ? my servo wires are ran directly from the servo to the reciever, are some rc's hooked into the esc instead of the reciever ?

Thanks

The esc powers the receiver in most cases. But a esc cant handle high draw setups. To fix this problem you can use a receiver pack to power the receiver and servos or a external bec. To run such setups you need to disconnect the red wire on the esc plug that goes to the receiver.
