Default KST 215 Breakaway Servo Arms?

Bought some orange ones, but they are shorter than the KST arms I'm using. What brand/source do you use for breakaways? Thx.

I use the orange ones. I have no issues with them.

I use the blue ones from Anything Heli (lots of them!) and they are great. Much easier to change a servo horn than a gear set, and cheaper too.

They're actually a little bit closer to the recommended length that's in the manual. That being said, I hate how they bind so much against the servo body. I run the regular arms, but keep the breakaway ones in my field box just for spares. You can also adjust the ball ends on the grips in and out to further adjust your servo resolution. Hope this helps.

This thread reminded me I need some of those for a kit I'm building with DS215MG servos. Got them at Banggood, a dollar for ten;

As above. Not broke a servo gear yet in a ton of crashes.
Arms always break, as they are designed to do.

I have the blue ones too, wondering if they'll work okay.
