Carousel controller

For modelers at the top of their game,
centering is the only thing that counts.
Control-loops rely on potentiometers
and unquestionably the best pot money
can buy is this million-cycle Nobel 1Mc.
This genuine Japanese pot is at the
heart of our servos from quarter to micro.

DS180DLHV vs D645MW

Nearly 500 years ago, a fellow name of Machiavelli wrote . . .

'If you come for the king, you best not miss!'

. . . and in the world of RC-servos, with +300 servos under their belt, the king is Hitec - undisputed. Nobody handed them the title, either. It's taken decades of offering good servos at good prices, in other words, they've 'earned' their place.

For old timers, it likely began with the HS-645MG. Followed by the HS-5645MG (when the world shifted from analog to digital), the latest iteration, but now at high voltage, their D645MW, outputting 180oz-in @ 0.17sec/60° is top dog

So with the DS180DLHV, we take our best shot at earning your business. It's you who decides, is it a miss or clean hit?

. . . and heads up, both are $40 servos. Ours is one in a series of five, the DL-series. Range in output from 90-360oz-in, and are priced from $30-50, they're not cheap or cheaply made. So they may be a lot of money, what do you say about bang for the buck? We in the running for your business?

Unlike servos using a plastic foundation,
ProModeler's 10-bolt porcupine case is
CNC-machined from a solid-billet of 6061-T6
aircraft aluminum. Lightweight and strong,
with cooling fins to efficiently shed heat better,
this structural member anchors both motor
and gear train with 10 o-ringed Allen-head bolts.
The porcupine is used throughout our lineup.
