Education Series 2 of 3
Welcome back to Servo Tech 101. Today’s lesson is on Micro Servos. With the current
popularity of 1/18th scale Sedans, Trucks and Buggies, it’s clear the need for strong,
reliable and precise Micro Servos is at an all time high. Hitec invites you to dissect our
Micro Servo line and review the following facts about Micro Servo technology.

GEARS - NYLON, KARBONITE, METAL
Last time we shared information on the relative strength of Hitec’s
different gear materials. Let’s review that information. Check out the chart
below to help explain the strength factors of the different gear materials. Hitec
Micro Servos use either nylon, Karbonite or metal gears. Need precision and
smoothness? Try the HS-56HB and HS-65HB
Karbonite gear servos. Want strength?
Use the HS-65MG or the larger
HS-81MG metal gear servos.

NEODYMIUM MOTOR MAGNETS
Ever wonder how Hitec packs so much torque into those tiny
little servo cases? Hitec’s HS-56HB and HS- 65 series servos use three
pole motors featuring incredibly strong Neodymium rare earth magnets.
Neodymium magnets are also known as “supermagnets” so it’s worth a
little extra cost for the increased performance
gained from using Neodymium magnets.
Stronger Magnetic Forces
Equals Higher Torque
A great replacement for the stock servo that comes with the Mini-T.
HS-56HB Associated 18-T
Karbonite gears, high speed and torque make this servo a great choice for 4WD trucks
like the 18T and hopped up Mini T’s.
Kyosho Mini Inferno ST
Designed specifically for the mini cars and trucks; this servo is as good as it gets!
Use the metal gear version on larger 1:16th vehicles or highly modified 1:18th trucks.
HPI Micro RS4 Sedan
tay for the mini cars and trucks since their introduction. Although slightly
larger, they are well known for their durability and massive torque.
