It's in an increasingly long queue (but near the front).

Also the servo of choice for the new F3F Needle and used on several 200MPH+ 60" DS beasts. Only stripped one in all my learning to fly on my 60". Still not certain I'd use one if I could stick in something bigger and slop free.

The newer brass geared ones do seem to be getting a thumbs up. Don't know how much flying anyone has been ablevto give them yet though.

I maintain I never had any problems with the old ones but note that lots of the people who did, seem to have problems with lots of 'things'.......

Best quote I ever read regarding 5125 servos was this one (can't remember who, but he wasn't from over here!):

"The gears stripped out in my 5125. There's no way that crash would have stripped the gears in any other servo."

Does that explain the "problem" with the gears in 5125 servos?

Wot e' said. 5125's in my Wiz, and 125's in my old Opus. Not a broken tooth to be had.

Volz Micro-Maxx X however...

My 60" Kinetic that went 315 has 5125MG on ailerons and flaps and D-60 on the elevator. I've been flying it over a year now and everything is still good & tight. Never stripped a gear or fluttered a control surface to date...

Just gotta remember to get the flaps up in time when landing...
