    I don't know if these are good servos or not but for $16.99 for 4 servos plus $17 dollars for shipping I took a chance.
    So far so good on my GT2 (soon to be a SC10GT) they seen as fast as my Airtronics 358's and that's not at all bad.
    here's the spec's...
    -Dimensions: 1.57" x 0.79" x 1.44" (40 x 20 x 36.5mm)
    -Weight: 1.78oz / 48g (Servo Net Weight Only) Operating Speed (4.8V no load) : 0.17sec / 60 degrees
    -Operating Speed (6.0V no load) : 0.13sec / 60 degrees
    -Stall Torque (4.8V): (13kg/cm) (180oz/in.)
    -Stall Torque (6.0V): (15kg/cm) (208oz/in.)
    -Temperature Range: -30 to +60 Degree C
    -Dead Band Width: 4usec
    -Operation Voltage: 3.5 - 8.4Volts
    I wouldn't try these out on a 1/8Th scale until we put them through the rigors of 1/10 gas truck.
    Stay tuned...

    I 've broken 2 of them they were sold at hobbyking a few years ago for $10 a pair. They are too slow for racing.
    I have an Associate servo in my car hi torque and super fast for 80 buck.s it was well worth it.

    hey AERacer, I lost one of those Blue Bird servos back in 2007. I don't remember which one it was but I do remember the glitches it gave my radio system, I thought it was someone on my frequencey, turned out to be the servo. It was fast for a throttle servo and metal geared. But after 2 races (6 heats and the mains) it fried !
    I never bought a Blue Bird since and now I'll never buy Tower Pro again ! For $17.99 plus $16 shipping for 4 of them I should have known better but we live by doing and I got burnt this time. I'll think I will stay with Associated XP servo's, for the money you can't beat them and they are reliable or maybe Savox, they are priced about the same as XP's and they are great. I have one in my buggy for the throttle / brake duties and it works very good so far...:ninja:
