HS-55 vs GWS pico


Does any one have any experience with those micro servos...either the HS55, GWS Pico or the Futaba equivalent? Which would you recommend?

I've used both the HS-55 and the GWS Pico extensively. Both have worked very well for me.
If I had to choose it would be the HS-55, primarily because parts (gears) are readily available and Hitec service, if required, is the best around.

Agree with both points!

I also like the hs 55 as it draws less current.

My choice for micro servo.


I like both but I must say the the pots on the HS55 go south. I have never lost a Pico due to a bad pot. As far as parts like gears easy to get both. Aeromicro.com. When a pot goes on a $22 servo. Just throw it away. You can clean them but it not worth the time or the chance of stuffing a plane. I have never had a motor go bad on any micro servo hitec or gws. If I had to pick one I would say Pico.
