Anyone used the HK5320s with the Plantraco micro9-s-4ch rx?

Cheers,
Bob

You would have to change the plug, but the rx you use doesn't matter as long as it works at the same voltage as the servo.

Here's something new (to me) and interesting - the servo in white! I like it.

Out of stock, of course, but I wonder if the servo could be requested in either color? Probably not ....

I have opened either of my three white ones up, but they don't jitter like the older orange ones did. I like these way more.

I never had a jitter problem with any of the orange servos I have!

Answering my own question:I ordered six white from the US warehouse and promptly received them. I followed that order with one for six white 1.9g servos, again from the US warehouse -- and I received six ORANGE.

HK Support is absolutely NO HELP with exchange/replacement, even though I offered to pay shipping both ways! They are unable to even determine what colors are in stock, so it's a gamble if you want white servos (as to use to blend into a white airframe).

HK support states that pictures of their products are not necessarily what you'll get (), and their poor attitude remains:

"Sorry, too bad, so sad".

Bummer. Are there different part numbers for the white and orange servos? If so then HK has no excuses!

Unfortunately, no. HK does differentiate color on other items, such as props, so hopefully they will sort it out likewise for these outstanding little servos.

Sorry, Gene. Wouldn't count on it.

My Whites arrived today and the label on the baggie is exactly the same as on my Orange ones, including the barcode.

Both are labelled HK-5320 with a code of 17540.

Just for info here are the weights of the White and Orange ("1.7g") plus the long motor Orange ("1.9g") and the bigger Black ("2.2g") servo.

John

UPDATE: Noticed the Orange ones have disappeared from the HK website. They only list White 1.7 and 1.9g now. My bet is the manufacturer (PZ - the Chinese one not ParkZone) have moved from Orange to White for some reason.

That may depend on the prop. When I bought some GWS props from them, their description said that they were free to change the color from what was shown.

guys mine can't even move the control surface, what kind of hinges do you use? I think my hinges (the ones with a metal pin inside) are a bit to stiff for these torque-less servos
