I agree with you about the issues they've had with other servos as I have 10, 7950s that have been nothing but problems. I'm not sure I agree with your reasoning that folks "on the cheap" will give them a try, but that is only because these servos aren't cheap At $150 each they are priced at pretty much the maximum I will spend for a servo, ANY servo. There are too many other proven choices in that price range to warrant taking a chance on these in the hope that Hitec did a better job this time.

They are an addition to the line.

They also have flat wires which is more user friendly in Heli's and Cars.

Hummm....that's what I typed NON-programmable unless we have different meanings of non.


So they are not intended for fixed winged airplanes?.....that 90* instead of 180* is intriguing and would make one think maybe they aren't intended for 3D but you should still be able to manipulate the arm lengths to get enough throw.

It might just be to show the speed spec for 45 degrees each way like they do some other servo's, but they in fact do go a full 90 each way.
The standard, out of the box rotation has been +/- 45 degrees for years. Other than not being programmable, I don't see a difference here. Some other brands rate their servos at +/- 30 degrees for a similar pulse input range.

They could be used but the 8385TH is "tuned" for aircraft usage where the 60/70/80 is tailored towards heli's and cars with an ultra tight <1ms deadband.

These are standard travel, the same as exsisting servos from all brands.

Maybe the 25T thing is explained by them potentially contracting the design and build of these latest servos out to a different build house that currently manufactures for Futaba or one of the other brands that use 25T splines. Would probably be cheaper to use existing parts they already produce like 25T splines.

$150 is cheap compared to the Futaba BLS157's at $190 and the JR MP82T's at $205

They were sold by the masses, but slowly lost popularity as the introduction of newer Hitec servos took over. There wasn't any real inherent issues with them, they just weren't programmable.
