What are the best Cheap Servos?
Looking for some Cheap servos? It's not the best idea to use cheap servos in one of your favorite RC Airplanes that you've invested much time and money. To me, it's just not worth the risk of destroying your pride and joy just to save a few bucks.
However, it's really not necessary to drop good money for top-of-the line expensive servos to use in an expendable plane. You know, the type of plane that won't break your heart if it bites the dust.
I know, all of the planes in your hanger have a special place in your heart. But, it's probably OK to use less expensive servos in expendable planes such as small foamies, combat planes, or your beater planes.
Common issues with Servos
As the old saying goes, you get what you pay for. You obviously can't expect a cheap RC servo to be the same quality of a Futaba servo! Here are some of the common issues experienced with some cheap RC servos.
The most common issue with cheap hobby servos are their ability to "center" properly. In other words, when you let off the sticks the control surface may not return to "perfect" neutral position. Obviously if your flying precision aerobatics you can't have this.
Some folks have experienced premature failure of the circuit boards, poor quality of gears, and "jittery" movement when using cheap RC servos.
Chances are, you will have little problems with relatively inexpensive servos. The issues above are just more common with less expensive RC servos, thus you are taking a risk.
