Yep. I bought three packs of them. They are great. Good adhesive too. Stick well to balsa or covering.

I have 985's in my 71 and they seem pretty good on 6v. I might try and bump them up a tad.

but.... Savox 1258TG's rock! Doesn't cost much more at all for a digital servo that way outperforms the 985mg. same price from most places actually. but the 985 can be found cheaper at places like toddsmodels.com both my 71 and 74 instantly got fully converted to 1258TG's after trying them. Align DS610 is the exact same servo too, just different packaging. you can usually find some good deals on them used from the heli guys.
