Tip for new pilots - HS-55's


Hi Guys, Well after reading for somewhile - I decided to purchase some Hitec HS-55's from my walkera DF4, WHAT a difference straight away, everything was backwards!!!...until I changed the dip switch settings on the Tx
Now I know the original Walkera electronics are very poor, but still the heli is FAR more stable and FAR more responsive, I also purchased and better motor and heatsinks, still to install tho'.
So For all the new heli pilots out there and wonder what / where to next, get the servos for sure. HUGE difference.
My 2cents worth.

Oh forgot to say, if anyone else has info on the HS-55's and thier experience with these, please post.

I have several HS55 servos on my foamie airplanes. THey have been great with no problems. I was wondering if I should swap 3 of them out with the stock servos from the Blade CP. I didn't do it as I noticed some of my HS55 servos have some slop in them. But by what you are they are noticably better than the stock servos? If so, I may give it a try and swap them out. My foamies will never notice the difference. If you wiggle the arm on your new HS55 servos do you feel any slop? Maybe mine are just a little worn. I heard that the HS56 are pretty good as the carbonite gears in them at 4x stronger than the plastic gears in the HS55 so they will not wear down as fast.
