The big Savox come with nice M3 socket head screws that are great for the links.

I don't use Savox currently in any of airframes but I have some experience with the 1230 SG in my Axial Wraith Rock Crawler and I am very pleased so far. With close to 500oz of torque and superb centering it has transformed that rock crawler into a beast. It is a little noiser than some servos but what do you expect out of such a powerful servo. I did have to add a battery eliminator circuit as the amp draw was cauing my ESC to go into low voltage cut off!! BEC took care of that issue. I wouldn't hesitate to get another.

I am the oldest Savox Dealer in the US and have done most of independent testing on all the servos within the Savox line. We have been very happy with the quality of the servo as a line and I have been most impressed with 1270TG's and 1283SG's. If you require any additional knowledge on the servos please feel free to PM me.


Thanks
Brian

Horizon Hobbie rebrands them under their Spektrum label...


SA1251MG = Spektrum A6070
SA 1256TG = Spektrum A6020

Do these savox servos stay tight? I have also heard they use less power, is that true? Thanks much

Depends on the servo and the setup. I switched from Hitec 7950's to Savox 2270's and cut my battery consumption in half.

Comparing apples to apples, I don't see much difference in current draw between Savox and other brands. But I emphasize you must be honest with the comparison. Savox servos tend to have a more honest torque rating than some other brands so you have to compare the torque the servos actually produce and not necessarily go by what is printed on the spec sheet.

I'm just about ready to start building a CARF MX-2... it uses ganged servos in each wing (this CARF design dates back to about 2009, before servos took a huge leap forward in power.


I'm considering using just 1 Savox 2231-SG in each wing, saving a little money, a little weight and a LOT of hassle getting ganged servos matched up with each other and the pair in the other wing.


Has anyone had any experience with the 2231-SG's? They are (apparently) about 8mm taller than a standard servo. Is that extra height above or below the mounting holes?
