So you want to find the right servo!
Based on price specs and power
which would you choose?

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

I would have to say one that is not on the list, the KRS-788HV ICS Digital Servos. great servo and for $88 you cant go wrong.

We use the DX-117, which is essentially the same as the RX-28. Needless to say, the are awesome! They are smart, strong and reliable - even though the price is a little steep.

That does look interesting. But it looks like it uses the standard connector... is it serially addressable? Daisy chainable? How, in short, do you connect and communicate with it (talking about 2-way communication here, not old-fashioned servo driving).

Thanks,

I find myself wishing they had something between the AX-12 ($45) and the DX-117 ($192), though. That's a pretty big jump. I'd love something compatible with these, with in-between specs, and a price tag around $100.
