NEW Hitec Servo! HS-488HB

Discussion in 'Manufacturer's Announcements and Discussions' started by ServoCity, Nov 8, 2018.

  1. We're excited about the NEW HS-488 servo! It's based around the ever popular HS-485HB, but with some noteworthy updates!

    What's interesting is the absence of a phillips head screw and the use of an allen head!
    Also 25 tooth spline like Futaba... Is Hitec going this direction instead of the 24T?

    You may want to ask @Xpress. But if I remember correctly, Hitec did in fact adopt the 25 tooth spline technology. And the allen head has also recently been added. Just increasing the ever popular Hitec servos to a more appreciated and desired servo.

    This is a special servo that will be exclusive to ServoCity. The only difference between the HS-485HB and the HS-488HB is the HS-488HB has a 25T spline and comes with an allen head screw.

    So what you are saying is, it is the only one with 25t spline and Allen screw?

    I'm saying the HS-488HB is specific to ServoCity and can only be purchased through them. The HS-485HB is available in many markets.
  7. The HS-488HB servo is very similar to the HS-485HB, but the differences are:
    • 25T spline like many other manufacturers use
    • Socket head servo screw with larger diameter threads for better holding power
    • no mechanical stop in the gears
    • no mechanical stop in the potentiometer
