So is Align just "assembling" these servos using Savox parts or are these completely Align made servos? It's not like the general public doesn't know that Align has rebranded the Savox servos for years and it's even more suprising since the Align specs are identical to the Savox HV servos that were released before Align went to market with these. Please do fill us in on what is different about these....

So let's get this straight, they are Savox, they are Savox units, sent to Align in assembled and Align assemble them. That's ok, Savox seem to be great servos.
Ive never had an issue it's them except for the 410's, but the 650 and 610's have been really reliable, so keep assembling away Align.

So why buy the align? When the savox costs 40 dollars less???? Why can't we get the DFC in kit form??? Most people change out the HV, Motor and ESC anyways

Have a set coming. They are obviously Savox innards but Align might be adding some nicer gear bits and the cases are look nicer too.

I'm tempted to buy one and open it up to compare to my Savoxs.

I've found quite the opposite,

The new 750MX motor is scary powerful, CC ICE2 120 HV works great just needs good cooling, and I'm finding it hard to fault these servos.

I think you would be mad to spend extra cash on other electronics (sans 3GX of course)

Since these servos have been out for a while now, how are they performing for everyone? I see where you can get a set of 4 for under $400 and wanted to jump on a set, but kind of scared to with little to no feedback on the BL700H and BL750H servos... I wanted to put a set of these in a 600 DFC, and looks like they will fit nicely, whereas some of the other HV servos require shimming to give enough clearance!

They're working great for me so far, and have heard very little in the way of problems. They run cool, strong, and fast. They can be a little power hungry, but not terribly bad. When I run four hard flights, they are pulling close to 500mah per flight along with a vBar.

Actually you can get them cheaper if you look on the back of the business card he sends with each order...

My cyclics work great but the BL750H has compatibility issues with the HC3sx FBL unit. It's been well documented in the HC forum but just giving a heads up for anyone looking at running the HC with this combo.

+1

i got the hv kit sans 3gx and love it. threw a vbar on it and running the 750mx, stock hv servos and the cc120. this is my first castle and i love the function and features of it and would love to try the edge 160 on my next heli but must admit i'm a little concerned about the cc esc in the back of my mind. starting to get hot around here and the esc is showing it. anyways, back to topic the stock hv servos on a straight lipo are awesome. little more slop than some other brands but seriously doubt i would ever notice in the air

results will vary with consumption. i'm far from hard 3d and i just topped off the rx pack last night, 4 flights on a 5 minute timer and 10-15 seconds over until i land and my 2550 pulse pack took a little under 1000 mah. my understanding of these servos is that they are actually pretty easy on overall power consumption but have a super high spike on sudden movements which is my they are overpowering some bec's.

I've been flying my HV DFC kit with stock components and AR7200BX unit for almost two months. Servos work great and my CC120 HV is installed in position 1 per instructions. The hottest it's been running is 127 F which is quite good for the current hot weather. Can't see anything wrong about this kit. I simply love my 700!
