Thanks also for the servo link .I do have a spare Hitec servo of about the same spec so will start off with the standard Venom servo and perhaps change later on .
On the subject of servos the Anderson M5 steering servo seemed a bit low spec and got much better response after changing for a better faster one .Does the same apply to the Venom OEM as dont want to be changing is the original is suitable .
Last question , is there another Rx which would be compatible with the VR3T Tx .
Have been using a Spectrum stick set up in the M5 with no problem so is now a toss up between staying with that or moving over to the wheel set up .
Spectrum Rx are fairly expensive unless a good S/H unit ex EBay
Venom spares are not stocked by many shops here in UK and have done a Rx search but appears nothing available locally
Have relatives who can source and post from US but things normally pack up at the wrong time and would be nice to have a spare.
Hey Jim good stuff. I did find the steering in the VMX to be improved with the replacement of the servo with a Futaba one with a transit of about .20 sec. Not super quick as will only make the bike steering action more jerky. With the MM the steering does feel better but I put that down to the gyro. The servo still requires constant trim adjustment, and I'm sure when I change the servo I will notice a slight improvement in getting the bike to go exactly where I want it. Sevo works ok but can be improved.
if you have a super fast super strong one lying around you can tune the steering speed with the radio. With these servos I set the speed to about 60 percent.
video done on the track was with std servo so you can see works ok.
