Servo torque

I'm trying to figure out the torque on a Hobby King's HXT 900 - 9g Servo ? It said its 2.5 kg- cm. What the #%@ is that in oz.? I've tied different converters and it comes out way off. HELP, It also said its a 9 gm servo. ( I know what 9 g is ) But then it goes on to say it's a 11 g. So which is it ?

Now you have it in ounce inches, does it mean anything

2.5 Kg-cm is equal to 34.7 oz-in. The 9g normally is the weight of the servo. I looked up the servo and the listing heading lists one set of specs and the description has different info so who knows why they are listing it that way. I would go with the description as the specs.

Try this conversion chart: http://www.luberth.com/cstep/steppers.htm, Scroll down to the bottom and the chart is there. I have used this for years since I found it.

Another conversion factor from metric to American/inch is area.

Expressed in inch, we know it as "square inches".
Many places don't list the wing area in this manner but rather, in the metric value.

Example: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...76mm_ARF_.html

Wing Area: 40.05 Sqdm

To convert this to square inch, multiply 40.05 Sqdm x 15.50 to get square inches (620 sq in)

I believe the servo itself is 9g, and with the servo lead it's 11g.
