Hi all . As per title , it a reminder for older members and a warning for newer flyers NOT to buy any dodgy cheap servos sold on line on well known auction site . If the price looks too good to be true it will be . A fellow club mate who has just come back to model flying after some years off fell foul of these dangerous servos and it cost him his model !
They are often sold as Futaba or Tower Pro but there are copies of other makes out there. The priceis a giveaway . £10 for 4 posted ! You will losea model if you use these or could injure yourself or someone else .
The actual servos at a glance look like Futaba or TowerPro but on closer inspection have hard shiny cheap plastic cases with very poor detail like CE marks and "Made in Tiawan " very badly molded. The sticker are often on crooked . Internals are rubbish and apart from crashng your model could catch fire .
DONT BE TEMPTED.
