RE: retract servo

That servo has to squeeze into a really tight spot. If you have several extra servos you could modify one to turn 180*. But looking at the model I think the smaller profile of a retract servo will...

RE: retract servo

Both those servos are fine but beware that the higher end servo is for 4.8v only. The cheaper one can use 4-6v. I live by the JR791 when it comes to mechanical...

RE: Lado retracts, do the really exist?

RE: CMP-Hellcat Full Destruction w/pics and RCSB Report
