HS 82 MG servo?

Are the Hitec HS 82 mg servos any good? I had the HS 81MGs anf they were terrible servos and would not hold center. My HS 225MGs are good servos but a tad heavy for my small gyroplane project.

What servos are you guys using on small DC head Gyroplanes?

Hi Grant,

I'm building a self designed small gyro with DC head and I've just done a few test flights. It's approx. 24 inch rotor dia. and I'm using a HiTec HS65MG. It seems to be very responsive with no problems at all.

I have used the HS-81HB and HS-82MG. I think they are similar in performance. The centering isn't much better than an HS65 even though they ultimately have more torque. I think they are still good quality for the cost. If you need good centering, others say the HS-85 is better.
