I just wanted to take a moment to brag about these little servos. As an avid scratch/kit builder who has plowed through the cheap HXT900/SG90 or clones thereof, they have their place but if you are looking for an alternative without breaking the bank....i cant recommend these servos enough. my original "try em out" set have been moved from plane to plane to plane (being a noob i crash alot) and are still kicking around. cheap $2 9g servos typically wont survive crashes or abuse without stripping. i am starting this thread because there are very few references to the DSM-44 on rcgroups and i just wanted to share my experience and hear from anyone who has used these......heres the specs
Speed .09sec/60deg @ 4.8v
.07sec/60deg @ 6v
Torque 1.20kg.cm/16.66oz.in @ 4.8v
1.60kg.cm/22.21oz.in @ 6v
Metal Gear Coreless Digital.....here's the biggie......5.75g!!!!!
i typically run mine at 6v but have had no issue with torque when at 4.8v. Speed and centering is unmatched by any other analog 9g servo i have used and amp draw is well within reason. I get these through ValueHobby although i have seen them with other vendors. yes they are $7.99 but very robust and will last a long time vs the "cheapies". attaching pics of my old stinger64 that is getting new life with these servos and a Don's Wicked EDF running 4s.

stock mg servo stinger64
dsm-44 about same size at futaba s3114 (good servo but pricey)
although digital, yes they can be reversed internally just like an analog....tiny tiny solder work though
servo covers from Morgan RC, work great!
moved aileron arm covers to elevator
all closed up
alotta bang for a 5.75g servo
