What does "13KG large torque" work out to in "oz/in"? Anyone...

That is almost double the torque of most 1/4 and giant scale servos! I think there is some conversion that needs to be done between cm/in also with the the kg/oz conversion. I tried the math and came to 180 oz/in which is still a high number for a standard size servo of any type. Math 1cm=0.393in, assuming "13KG large torque" is kg/cm, 1kg=35.27oz, 13kg=458.51oz, 458.51oz*0.393=180.91oz/in. If that is the correct way this will be a very good deal and a super sweet if it has BB.

One more question, does it come with any servo horns?

My initial thoughts on this servo after an hour or so of tinkering with it. Standard size servo, all metal gears and the output shaft IS supported by two ball bearings. The lead wires are a little less flexible than other brands, not a big deal, servo horns are solid but it would be nice if a round horn was included. It's response is good and there was no noticeable jitter with my radio and it did recenter very well. Torque, it does "feel" stronger than my other standard servos, but 3X the power? I have no way to measure torque or do I know the standard of how it's measured so my "feel" will have to do. I was in need of a metal gear servo with more torque than standard servos and that was nicely priced and this fits that perfectly. It should work well for what I have planned for it. So +'s: affordable, metal gear, BB, high torque. Minor -'s: no round horn, stiffer lead wire, not a real fast servo(but I want torque anyway). Time will tell on the overall quality of it's build and potentiometer. XUS Hobby provided an excellent transaction and speedy shipping and I will no doubt be purchasing from them again.
