    I have 5 of these servos and they are really nice and you can't beat the performance for the price. They are super quiet and centering is right on. I will definitely be getting more of them.

    Really interested in theses servos have read everything I can find on them the only thing I just cannot find is the size of the servos the width, length and the height from the under side of the tab to the bottom of the servo. It is critical to know because they are going into a foam wing and the the pocket can not be enlarged. Thanks.

    These are at the top of my list for my Hangar 9 Extra 300X. They're out of stock right now, but I'm sure if you contact them they can give you all the details. I know the version 4 is tall. A lot of it will stick out of the wing.

    Yes you are correct will be sending them an email to find out the dimensions. If they fit I will most likely give them a try everything I have been able to find is good news and they are made in USA.

    @Snoopy1 did you ever here back about the servos? I was just on their website and the 420oz is no longer listed.

    Yes I did got the email back from them this morning and got all the dimensions from him. He was quick to reply and it looks that it will be a tight fit. Just looked at this site and the 420 oz v4 is still on the sight for $80.00

    I see it on the ProModeler site now. I was on the Audacity Models site. That's the one that they aren't on any more. Hopefully it's just because they're out of stock.

    @stangflyer I cannot answer either one one of your questions, never owed one but off all the servos I have researched it has no and mean no bad reports. It is brushless which is a big benefit for those that put a lot of flying time in. It's made I the USA and there is a real person to talk to and really knows his stuff. I will be buying one soon and try to see if I can make it fail if not will buy a set. I believe it to be the real deal. It would be interesting if you gave him a call and spoke to the gentleman to see what impression you get from him. I really liked him and he gave me all the righ answers.

    Since the 420 ounce servos are out of stock I emailed him and he got back to me right away. He said it would be a month or so before they were back in stock.
