    High torque servo?

    Can someone recommend a high torque servo? Are the 1/16 Summit servos considered mini or micro? The highest torque rating I find in micro is 69 in/oz. it's for a crawler I'm building and two servos isn't an option. Thanks for any help.

    A Bluebird 390DMH is a great servo. Not sure about torque, but I thought it was even more than 69 at 6V.

    Thanks. I never came across it while looking around. It's 75 oz-in at 6v. Seems like the best option for low priced servos. There's a Savox with 139 torque, but I'm not spending $100 for it. Thanks again.

    I got my Savox for 25 bucks
    It's not 139 oz/in of torque, but it's enough. Plus, its waterproof!
    Found it:

    I have a savox they are good metal gears and watter proof and I think he 1/16 traxxas are considered mini

    I can 2nd the Bluebird. I waterproofed it with plastidip...metal gears and aluminum Case. Has held up extremely well so far.

    Yeah I'm looking for a servo at Tower, but the regular Hitec I get is outta stock and I need one now.

    And only want to place one order with Tower.

    Someone had a servo chart of all servos that worked. .??

    ....and the Bluebird quit working on me. Replaced with the Hitec and it seems bulletproof thus far. Finger crossed...

    I think I just blew my stock servo , no left turn and grinding noise. So some questions arise, single or dual?, stock, savox, hitech?

    I have great experiences with Bluebird and rarely read bad stories about the Savox. As far as I am informed those two are the top choices.

    Is there any downside to running dual servos?

    Not worth it, if not set absolutely perfect the servos will fight each other and burn out.
