I run D654s on my 450 on cyclic. They are awesome. Still can't believe the quality and performance for less than $10. I'm gonna have to buy more

Mine have no gear slop, are extremely quiet, and test 0.066 sec/60* at 5.5V on my CopterX servo tester. I have 7 flights on them so far and they feel crisp and precise, have smooth and equal travel under high load and no observable overshoot.

unfortunitely i have 3 crashes on my 500 using the 658 solar servos and they are all still working just fine. last crash did quite a bit of damage and the heli is still awaiting parts but the servos are all fine. can not beat them for $12

Picked me up some 658's for cyclic and a 770 for the tail on my 500. For the price they cant be beat, running em on 6V and they are fast n precise. Very happy with their performance thus far, only time will tell how they hold up.

Default d658

2 of my d658 servos died after a dozen flights on HK450v2. Used with hobbypartz HG48v gyro on 5.5 volts. Sent them back for exchange and will use them on something else in future. I have recently switched to assan gyro & align tail servo but haven't flown it yet.
