    This DS110CLHV is one of 4 ProModeler mini-size digital servo alternatives. Sharing the same hybrid construction as the DS160CLHV, this one is rated at 110oz-in instead of 160oz-in. Featuring the same look due to hybrid (plastic/aluminum) construction, the 110 and 160 have coreless motors. Costlier alternatives in the mini-class include the 160BLHV and 205BLHV.
    More expensive due to an all-aluminum case, these also have brushless motors and an up-rated gear train. Anyway, outputting 110 oz-in and transiting in 0.035 sec/60°, many pilots view this DS110CLHV as our best compromise of all possible features in the mini-class. Perhaps you will also.

    When is fast important? Maybe you're outfitting a 422 Q-40 or 426 Q500 pylon racer (because you're one of those God equipped with the superhuman reflexes). Or you're Jonesing a gyro equipped 60" class 3D model for the ultimate in low level aerobatic capability. Sure, 110oz-in is probably twice as much torque as you need, but the reason you want this servo is for 60°/0.035 seconds. Beyond über fast, it delivers when cutting inside a competitor at turn 1, or for executing a waterfall down to 6" before powering out. If you're seeking an edge . . . you've just found one!

    Especially important for racing are servos built to an aerospace standard. For example, racing engines transmits power impulses throughout the air frame at 23K RPM. This intense vibration can kill servos. The DS110CLHV is tested to MIL-STANDARD 810G Test Method 514.6 (vibration), offering another edge hobby-grade servos can't deliver. How important is better vibration protection? Yeah, we think that way also.

    Randy Smith from Alberta, Canada launches a Q-40

    What if you're outfitting a 500-class 3D-heli? Since cyclic-servos plug directly into a flybarless 3D-gyro - ahead of the receiver - this means corrective inputs are generated by the MEMS sensors (and significantly faster than human response). This is why top pilots use the fastest servos they can find. After all, performing piro-flips and tick-tocks so low the tail rotor nearly touches the ground means a crash happens in a flash so faster reacting servos may mean the difference between cheers, and an expensive dirt nap, right? Since there are three servos on the swashplate, one servo alone outputs more than your entire model weighs. This means 110oz-in is overkill. And since a faster servo means 3D maneuvers happen more quickly, this is the servo you want for maneuvers that stop and start in an instant. Plenty of torque, and faster means the rest of the features are icing on the cake because for you, it's all about better performance.

    Ditto if you fly a 60" wingspan 3D electric down. Perhaps you want to torque roll so low you touch the tail wheel on the deck - at near zero airspeed so the forces are less important than convert thoughts into action lightning-quick or risking disastrously contacting terra firma. This is where speed counts and the DS110CLHV is the servo for your next model

    With respect to centering, due to the genuine Japanese Nobel potentiometer (the best money can buy) along with MIL-SPEC components, you get the best centering in the industry. And since the case is made of CNC-machined aircraft aluminum - plus impact resistant engineering polymer reinforced with bronze bushings at the steel gear shafts pockets - you get lust-worthy light weight plus slop-free performance that endures season after season.

    Better components. Better servos. The formula is simple. Decisions regarding what go into ProModeler servos aren't made in accounting to optimize price and profit, but in engineering. The reasonable price comes about because we reject the importer + distributor + hobby dealers business-model because they each get a cut at your expense. With ProModeler you're cutting out the middlemen by dealing direct.

    Note: operating voltage is 4.8-8.4V, but optimal performance is obtained with a 2S LiPo instead of a BEC. This is because LiPos deliver the required current without voltage spikes, noise, or otherwise adversely affecting the delicate avionics (25C or better is recommended). After all, synthetic orange colored Tang may have gone to the moon, but it doesn't compare to freshly squeezed orange juice. Same thing when it comes to feeding your avionics!

    Mechanical Details:

    The foundation is the center case that's made from a solid billet of 6061-T6 aircraft aluminum. It's CNC-machined with cooling fins for better cooling. The upper and lower case components are injection molded of impact resistant nylon 6.6 (a fiber-filled engineering polymer like what's used in Glock handgun frames). In the interest of durability, plastic case components are further reinforced with bronze bushings (at the pockets where the steel gear shafts fit). So as not to reinvent the wheel, the output shaft spline is 25T (Futaba-compatible). For durability, the gear train is all metal, and it's equipped with dual ball bearings. For protection against destructive vibration, the PCB (printed circuit board) is coated with epoxy potting compound. The entire assembly is sealed against the elements with thirteen (13) Buna-N synthetic O-rings. Finally, while there are ten (10) screws in the assembly, for increased rigidity, the upper case (the one housing the gears, e.g. the transmission section) is secured with six (6) screws instead of four. Moreover, you get hardened (grade 12.9) Allen-head M2 socket cap screws instead of Phillips.

    Last thing, if you're a 3D pilot and you'll trade off some speed for a bunch more torque, then consider our DS160CLHV (160oz-in vs. 110oz-in) because it transits in a mere 0.06sec/60°, which is plenty fast by pretty much any measure. Especially considering we are only competing with ourselves because the other brands can't! Finally, if brushless motor digital servos are more your cup of tea, then you may wish to consider our DS160BLHV and DS085BLHV (this last one is 760μs neutral so it's for tail rotor gyroscopes only). With bullet-proof all-aluminum construction, these servos may better suit you needs.


    These are mini-size servos with very small gears and operating them manually via the servo horn may damage them. This damage is not covered by warranty. Please do not treat these like a standard size servos. You've been warned. Also, operating voltage is 4.8-8.4V, but optimal performance is obtained with a 2S LiPo instead of a BEC. This is because LiPos deliver the required current without voltage spikes, noise, or otherwise adversely affecting the delicate avionics (15C or better is recommended). After all, synthetic orange colored Tang may have gone to the moon, but it doesn't compare to freshly squeezed orange juice. Same thing when it comes to feeding your avionics!


    There are plenty of competitors, but none are faster or stronger. And while one costs less and two cost the same, the rest cost more!

    The best minis I've ever used!


    I guess it's time to write my review. I have two 60-inch planes outfitted with these DS110CLHV servos, an Extreme Flight Gamebird, and a Skywing Slick 360. These are the best minis I have ever used! The quaility is second to none, with perfect centering, and the support is priceless (I have called and asked John and he;s always patient and willing). I have another plane outfitted with the DS160CLHV minis as well, and they're just as good (but not quite as fast) as the DS110CLHV mini servos. I also have a E-Flight Night Timber with the DS105CLHV sub-micro servos. If your on the fence about trying these servos, get off and get them!

    The ProModeler DS110CLHV servos center way better than the competition. Ridiculous speed! And more than enough torque for my style of "low and slow" 3D. Great servos at an even better price!

    Has exceeded my expectations


    Amazing product! I admit I was skeptical at first but service was quick and the product has exceeded my expectations. I can’t wait to get more.

    Great price, great service, fast shipping.... not to mention these servos are mega!! Fastest servo I’ve ever purchased and still more than enough torque to get the job done. Installed In an Extreme Flight 60” Slick, will be purchasing more of these for all of my future projects!


    Amazing servos!!!!

    I am not sure what's better, the quality of my ProModeler servos or the amazing customer service! The servos are incredibly well made. Nothing at this price point comes close.

    Great Fast and Accurate Servo

    I purchased five of these servos and use them as my throttle servo in all my giant planes. I can't say enough of great things about their performance. I like a fast throttle servo where I like a slower one for all my flight control surfaces. I fly mostly IMAC and ...... well, all I can say is if you haven't tried these servos you are missing out. I told a friend about these high speed servos and he purchased some also for his very fact RC boats and for his giant airplanes and he loves them also. Great product, great service and great price..........what else can you ask for.

    I put these servos in my 64in Extreme Flight MXS and all I can say is wow! These are the fastest, most accurate servos I have come across for these 60in planes and at a very fair price as well. Also, I have spoken to the owner of ProModeler a few times now and you would be hard pressed to find someone that stands behind their product as well as he does. Great servos and a great company to work with! Do yourself a favor and try these out on your next 60in build.

    Great little servo - fast and strong!


    I recently purchased a DS110CLHV servo to use as a throttle servo on a DA-35. It's fast and strong resulting in great control. I couldn't be more pleased and will no doubt be using this servo not only for throttles but as a general servo in smaller planes.
