Solar servo=Fail

The servo arm screws are too long, had to add a stack of washers to take up the slop.

There are different answers to this questions.
what splines are the Solar servos? do they fit JR/ Futaba Horns?

Thank you

They are 23 splines so JR or Airtronic horns will work.

i thought mine were too long (657, 658's) ... got a better driver and a better grip and it went all the way down.

The replacements screws I was sent were not even for a metal gear servo, they were for a plastic gear servo, I give up.

At least you got arms, My solar D658's came with screws that were too long and no arms whatsoever, just lost a plane because I was using futaba arms and they would not screw all the way down and eventually stripped the inside of the arm. went to and cant even find an e mail addy to contact them. I would really like to get the right size screws and get a definite answer on wht arms these things take
