Had a real good run out of TowerPro 9 gram --
Until now whole batch bouncing or not returning to centre 


Sorry to hear of your challenges with these servos.

I have been running servos from RC Timer pretty much exclusively in my park jets for six years.  Most of them have hundreds of flights and have been recycled through several planes.  I use the 9 gr servos  for my elevons and I certainly don't fly very "gently".  In all the years I have been using them, I have only ever stripped one and had another that just wore out.  At $1.98, they are some of the least expensive yet most reliable servos around in my experience.  I also use the 5 gr servos for my ailerons and rudders which saves me about 24 gr per plane in weight over using six nine gram servos to have all the controls.  I have yet to have a 5 gr servo fail (touch wood) in the almost three years since I started using those.  At $2.99 again some of the least expensive yet most reliable 5 gr servos I have ever used, smoother and quieter than the HXT 500 gr servos from Hobby King.

Best of luck.

Cheers,

Scott

Now, I would give up if I had to fly a wing on a string😃
I`d be happy to go back to free flight with vintage stick and tissue planes🙂

Scott are these the servos you use?

It is interesting Hobby King sell a TG9z but it much more expensive than the one from RC Timer. May be they buy them from RC Timer and change the label.
I had two of these servos to try years ago and they have been in about 4 different models and I `v had no problems with them.
They are very smooth and quiet in operation.

If I had known RC Timer were selling the TG9z or TG9e servo for that price I would buy them🙂

If you check out RCTimer motors ... such as the 2826 1000 ... 2200kv examples ... you will find them identical apart from bell colour to HK Turnigy. I have swapped bell and windings between them on more than one occasion and they run perfect.

I am sure that RCTimer and HK have a tie-up somewhere ... unsure of which way though ... HK has Hextronic as its 'owner' and in-house factory ... but RCTimer also has its in-house manufacturing ... 
Maybe like Car company's - the cross over of production is wide ranging ?
I'll fly anything if I can launch it ! Youtube : solentlifeuk

Yes, the links to the servos I use are in the highlighted text in my post.

I think you are right Nigel, the RC Timer and Turnigy are very similar and may be badged.

Even the curved flutes at front of motor case ... same.
