I wud say they are a little slow. Read the reviews below on it. People are saying the servo is quite large and may not fit in a 550 heli. For another $10 im using these

and on tail this

Both these servos im running at 6v and they are really fast.

I spent some time on the canopy that came with the 550 gt kit. Mine was cracked just like every ones so I did a little fiberglassing and got out the airbrush. With a little effort the stock canopy can look pretty good. Still have to clear coat the whole thing but I'm pretty happy with the results.

Hi lndcrzr

Really like what you have done with your canopy. Excellent job, are you taking orders?
Especially like the realistic torn masking tape effect on the top.
Great work.

Nice! Can you run an Rx and FBL controller directly off a 2 cell lipo with these?

The 450 sized rotostar servos are getting some bad press, but I have seen nothing bad about these.

After I checked mine, they are actually the 610 HV version. One reviewer on the HK product pages claimed they were incompatible with the Vbar, but I have had no problems (setting them up at least, haven't flown it yet) on a 50 Nitro FBL conversion.

I looked at all the Rotorstar servos before I bought these ones:
https://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/...dProduct=23157
and if you read the reveiws on the other rotorstar servos theres not a lot of good stuff. Hit and miss apparently.

Although I do check out the reviews, you have to bear in mind that if it's possible to do something really stupid, many people will do it. The biggest factor is probably quality control, which is hard to properly assess with a sample size of three servos - but a general rule with cheap servos is to always buy at least one spare. The ones you bought do seem to have a good track record with reliable reviewers.

HK Canopys

Hey guys i just bought a 550e Canopy from Hk for my GT, but it doesnt fit. It hits the cyclic servos and is about 10mm away before going over onto the canopy mounts,
So i guess my question, Do 550e canopy's actually compatible with the gt or is there a mod or canopy mount extension? I dont really want to buy a new canopy
