servo Q's

Just a quick Q on a servo situation.

Last night in our nightly lunch break drift session the steering went in my Mrs4.

Everything else was working fine just the steering went.

it has a hitec HS-81mg servo and am just wondering if its worth taking it apart and looking at it or just replace it?

just trying to get an idea of my best route of action to get this back up and drifting

It is worth taking apart man......one of the main gears in the servo might have gotten stripped. Depending on what it is i would check that first since gears are under 5bones.

yea I took it apart quick and all the gears seem fine

after I wake up I will try and power it up with out the gears see if it will turn the motor(as there was nothing coming from it at all) if not I will just run out and get a new one I guess lol

well went to the LHS yesterday and they didn't have the 85mg so I just picked up another 81mg and once again I got sucked into buying more stuff I don't need lol they need to move that discount bin away from the check out counter

I shouldn't really complain though cause I spent $40 and got:

new micro servo
2 sets of 1/10 foams (for the vendettas)
some shrink tubing
and the new issue of RC Driver
