airplane servos for steering servos?


Hello,

A friend of mine gave me a large container full of different sized airplane servos. I was wondering if I could use any as a steering servo, is there a big difference between the two?

The most important is digital, metal gears, and size nothing else unless you are using something that requires quick speed or torque like a heli tail or a huge RC ground vehicle.

couldn't help the reference on this, but yeah always double check measurements to make sure it will fit... I only buy metal gear servos, no exception and I also buy the fastest servo that I can reasonably afford. I'd go through the collection of servos and sift through the good one's that are worth keeping.

more than likely none of these servos will be usable in a RC ground vehicle..as they are not strong enough to hold a turn..
