Spektrum 1/8 And High Voltage Servos

Apr 06, 2011 3 Comments by

The S8000 super strong steel gear train, digital precision and outstanding output of 306 oz./in. of torque is ideal for the scale racer that demands a rugged servo that can handle the abuse of today’s racing environment.

Built specifically for the 1/8th scale racing market, the S8000 is appealing to off-road racers that are more torque conscious. The motors are larger than those of standard size servos, and paired with steel gears mean the S8000 servo is built to last.

A spacer is included to help with the installation of this larger servo in a standard mount location. A coreless motor, 22 AWG lead wire and dual ball bearings insure less overall operational resistance and higher reliability.

Features:

  • Oversized case
  • Digital precision
  • 306 oz./in. of torque
  • Dual ball bearing support
  • Heavy duty steel gears

The S8010 super strong steel gear train, digital precision and class leading .07 sec/60° transit time is ideal for the scale racer that demands a rugged servo that can handle the abuse of today’s racing environment, but wants instantaneous control.

Built specifically for the 1/8th scale racing market the S8010 is appealing to off-road racers focused on high speed. The motors are larger than those of standard size servos, and paired with their steel gears, mean the S8010 is built to last.

A spacer is included to help with the installation of this larger servo in a standard mount location. A coreless motor, 22 AWG lead wire and dual ball bearings insure less overall operational resistance and higher reliability.

Features:

  • Digital precision
  • 0.07 sec/60° speed
  • Dual ball bearing support

The S6100’s heavy duty steel gears, digital precision and class leading 361 oz./in. of torque is ideal for the popular 1/8th and 1/10th racing and bashing markets. What makes this super strong servo great is its ability to handle the higher voltage directly from 2-cell Lithium power packs.

Because the S6100 accepts a higher voltage it simplifies setup by eliminating the need for a protective regulator. Spektrum takes advantage of the higher voltage input and turns it into greater performance in the same space as a traditional standard servo. Even though it’s classed as a high-torque servo, the S6100 still has a very impressive .11sec/60º transit rating.

Also packed inside the attractive package are high-value features you normally find on a servo costing much more. Fitted with steel gears, a coreless motor, dual ball bearings and heavy gauge lead wires, you can expect durability and long lasting performance.

Features:

  • High voltage rating
  • Standard size
  • Ball bearing support
  • 361 oz/in torque
  • Precise digital control
  • Heavy duty steel gears

The S6090’s heavy duty steel gears, digital precision and class leading .09 transit time is ideal for the popular 1/8th and 1/10th surface racing and bashing markets. What makes this speedy servo great is its ability to handle the higher voltage directly from 2-cell Lithium power packs.

Because the S6090 accepts a higher voltage it simplifies setup by eliminating the need for a protective regulator. Spektrum takes advantage of the higher voltage input and turns it into greater performance in the same space as a traditional standard servo. Even though it’s classed as a high-speed servo, the S6090 still has a very impressive 292 oz/in of torque.

Also packed inside the attractive package are high-value features you normally find on a servo costing much more. Fitted with steel gears, a coredless motor, dual ball bearings and heavy gauge lead wires, you can expect durability and long lasting performance.

Features:

  • High voltage rating
  • Standard size

    “Duel ball bearing support” – do they fight each other ?

    • Matthew Higgins says:

      That would be cool. I think the word they were looking for is dual. Good thing you have an eye for things like that since your parents named you “Better_speller.”
