    FI. I did purchased one of these servos for testing and on looking at it was a bit dubious with the quality of the motors. Decided to do some testing and after some constant use under a load the motor just died. Maybe I got a lemon? Could not find any info on the in-use duty cycle for these servos and wondered if anyone had found it?

    There are 3 versions

    110kgcm 0.12 sec/60 degrees
    260kgcm same speed
    380kgcm higher gearing 0.5s/60 deg

    I've used all 3 for heave action and strongest is best which is the E-04B

    I only use mine for flight sim. I don't know how they would hold up for driving, but motors are easily replaceable as they're standard 550 size. I tested them too and find them to be only about 50% rated torque but haven't had any fail on me.

    That would be very valueable and interesting. I dont have much to contribute, but lots to learn.
