turn a cheap 9 gram servo into 7 gram servo?
im a real penny pincher, so when i see $10 servos that weight like 1.5 grams more then a $18 servo i get to thinking!
these are off ebay and you can buy as many as u like for like 10 bucks and 5 ship
not sure on the quility of these but the price it right!
whats a way i could make these "heavy weights" lighter?
has anyone even bothered with this(7-9 gram range)
i know that some have done this to the 6 gram servos before but it was butchered.

Lightening the lighter servos is covered in the February Inside Story. The principles are the same and you should probably be able to estimate how much weight you can eliminate from larger servos. However, you won't be able to end up as light.

You can purchase the servos directly E-bay not necessary.
I have purchased to batches of these 9g servos and they are working fine in my planes....
They also have some other interesting stuff. Nice planes....
and some mini boats, I purchased a couple of these to use the electronics out of ( like the bit charger). for an indoor thrust vectored plane....

I did what you are talking about. If you take the bottom of the case off, the screws and replace the heavy wires you'll get about a two gram savings. You can get more weight savings with more radical surgery.
The servos have worked fine for me.
