ProTek RC 170SBL Black Label High Speed Brushless Servo.

Brushless servo technology has improved by leaps and bounds. Finally, brushless servos can deliver holding power, speed and precision that can compete with a coreless servo. Combine that with the superior efficiency and lifespan of a brushless motor and you have a servo that hits all the marks, with the performance and quality required for a pro level build. 

A black anodized aluminum case with aluminum and white accents give this servo a stealthy look that sets it apart from the rest. The aluminum upper case provides bomb proof durability and the heat sink center case offers efficient heat dissipation and helps to reduce weight. The lead wire is detachable, allowing you to easily custom tailor the servo lead to your application, and the package includes both 135mm and 285mm length servo leads. Plus, a full selection of servo arms and mounting hardware are included making installation easy.

  • Ideal for any 1/10 to 1/8 surface application that requires lightning fast response

Good servos but they have a glitching issue with the Futaba 4PX. This is a known issue according with Amain support team, right now not using them because I am not able to solve the problem at least from my side.)

Great servo. It is my first time trying out the ProTek servos and it has proved to be a top notch from my experience so far.
It has taken a good amount of beating but it is still going very strong.
The finish on this is phenomenal. For about the same price, you're getting a brushless high speed servo that can cost you twice as much when you buy other brands.

Give it a try!)

The 170 is by far the best servo I've used to date. The detachable leads is key and I can only hope that trend continues with future protek models. I've been using Protek's for a while now and even though they have caught up to other "top brands" in price they've always matched them in performance in reliability and the 170 is no different. I'd recommend this servo to anyone!)

Best servo I have used in thirty years of racing. It has a nice look and does not fade in the hot summer temps. I use them in all of my cars. Good job, Protek!)

More power than you could ever need for 1/10 and 1/8 applications. Perfect for an 1/8 nitro racing throttle servo or as a steering servo in 1/10 classes to get that solid holding strength when pushing your cars limits.)

These protek servos are Imo the best on the market hands down and with a awesome company like amain having your back and will fix 99% of any issues Imo it would be senseless to go with any other servo out there unless you use because of a big name or something , These servos are seriously BADASS)

These 170SBL's have been amazing in my 1/8 Off Road Nitro buggy. I have put them thru 6 Regional races and they have stayed smooth,consistent and strong.)

All I can say is WOW! This is my first ProTek servo and I am so impressed! I put it in my 1/8 ebuggy and it is incredible. I love the detachable servo leads too.

I will slowly be replacing all my other servos with this one. Highly recommend!)

Was blown away with the performance of the protek 130ss. I wanted to try the 170sbl. Wow. This servo is in the top 5 best performing servos on the planet today! Some of the best centering i have ever seen! And. As far as build quality goes. Hands down the finest constructed servo i have ever seen.)

I was swayed into trying this servo. My first impression is that it's very decent for what it is.

The chassis seems rugged.

No servo horn provided unlike other protek units. The protek servo horn I tried on was too tight to push on by hand, but fit fine on my 160T. I'm sure some anti-seize and a screw would fix the issue with some massaging.

The initial start-up has a nice audible tone. Its also slowly moves the servo horn to it's neutral position.

In comparing this to my brushless MKS. It doesn't have the shakes. Its a tiny bit more noisy. Its a tiny bit less precise than both my MKS and my 160T protek which I really like. The 160T is made in Korea,not China like this model.

The servo comes with hardware, a med and long length plug in wire. Amain also lists a shorter wire for sale.

I have yet to run this, but from what I see so far, I would rather buy the Korean protek servos like the 160T over this unit. I might consider this for a larger bash truck with big tires, like a Revo with a one servo kit installed.

The bottom line for now is that this thing seems solid, has very good gear lash (tight), but isn't as good as something like a comparable MKS OR Sanwa servo. The main difference is preciseness.

I'll give this 4 stars for now. Really more of a 3.5 star rating. Once I get some time on it, I'll be able to provide more objective info. I'll move the star rating if needed at that time.)
