I’ve been using the 550 series Servos in every rc I have, from 1/8 to 1/10 in off-road, oval, crawling and drift cars. Super smooth and gobs of power. I’m not sponsored by them but would fully stand behind them! MKS with this servo has delivered the best bang for your buck. You won’t be disappointed.

Great servos, using them in a TLR 8ight-T 4.0 for both steering and throttle. No issues at all, centers every time. Very impressed with these servos!

Amazing servos! The specs speak for themselves: high-torque, high-speed, high-voltage, very high-quality construction, super quiet, affordable. They provide buttery smooth and fast movement with tons of power. After using these, I’ll be switching everything over as they are the new benchmark IMO.

MKS Servos X5 HBL550 Brushless Metal Gear High Torque Digital Servo
I saw these and did a double take at the price ! Had to have them. I put them in my new Synergy 696 on cyclic loved everything about them but they're a bit noisy. They worked great. I have a set of BK Kyle Stacy edition 7003 which the stars that were much faster then the 550s so I took the 550s out and put the BKs in. Needless to say one flight later the 550s were back in my 696. I really see the difference! My 696 is more crisp and pitch changing is fast and strong! It flew better with the 550s I cant believe it ! Get a set you wont be disappointed!!

I have a set of these on the cyclic for my SAB Kraken 580 nitro and Glogo 690 (nitro) helis and I absolutely love them!!! My flying style is moderate 3D but I've been leaning to a more aggressive style over the last year (been in the hobby for over 10 years). These servos don't skip a beat regardless of what I through at them (tic tocs, piro flips, piro tic tocs, funnels, etc). The abundant speed and torque makes executing maneuvers very predictable and sickly smooth. I've also crashed them (on both models due to a BEC issues) and have not had to replace anything. I'm flying unregulated now. HAHA. The price point in great too. If the geometry is set up properly these servos are very quite. I don't know my model is powered on unless I give radio input. These servos take a 25T horn which makes it easy for me because that's all I have. I've been using them for several months now and each flight is just as nice as the last. I'm buying these from now on for any application that requires standard size servos. My only complaint is related to the bolt that hold the servo horn. The servos come with bolts that require a 1.5mm hex driver. I would have preferred a 2.0mm or 2.5mm. However, the 1.5mm is holding well so far. You can't go wrong with these servos. And no, I'm not getting paid to do this review. I just really love these servos and wished I found them earlier.

Unbelievable amount of torque and speed for around $100. I usually use savox or futaba, but if this servo can handle my abusive driving I'll definitely be buying more.

Excellent Servo and price is fantastic. Your getting a high quality servo for your money. For Racing Buggies and Cars you don't want to run anything that is not of high quality. I highly recommend using these in your Racing Buggies and Cars.

Thought I would give this a try. Been a loyal Savox fan, but love that I get a metal case at the same price point as a plastic savox. Extremely fast, strong. Only 1 race day so far but extremely impressed.

this servo is amazing! really fast and lots of torque for whatever you chose to use it for.

only down side with this servo is that when I go to send my end points so I don't destroy it, it jumps all the way to which ever side it is your trying to set no clue why? I put it in my TRX-4 defender with the stock receiver and transmitter, with that being said I can't find much on how to fix that issue.

Best bang for your buck servo out there. You get excellent specs for only $100. Would highly recommend it for 1/8th racing and you're looking to save some money. There are other servos with almost the same specs as this one and they are $30 more. They are also the perfect speed in my opinion because a servo can be too fast or too slow, making it difficult to drive, but these are right in the middle. Also have more torque than you'll ever need. They can be kind of loud if that's important to you, but when racing 1/8 scale you can't notice.

I’m very happy with this servo. It replaced a BK Servo 7001HV, in my TLR 22SCT3.0, when the BK ceased to center reliably after a few years of racing.

This servo is more than fast enough, and torquey enough, for my Pro2 truck. I’d put it in my e-buggy without a second thought. I don’t recall if AMain had it listed in the specs, but this is 25T. The lead wire is plenty long for most any RC car/truck application. This is what I’ll purchase for my future replacements, on other vehicles. For 2wd buggies, im satisfied enough with this MLS, that I will be looking at their low-profile units
