Savox SW-0231MG "Tall" Waterproof Metal Gear Digital Servo
I have picked up 2 of these things so far and it is hard to beat the value on them for the power you get. The servo is waterproof from my experiences so far, and has some of the best torque for this price range.

Both of my previous ones ran for about 6 mo. before stripping the same metal gear inside. To me that is a reasonable amount of time for something waterproof in this price range, this is still my favorite servo for my SCX10.

Savox SW-0231MG "Tall" Waterproof Metal Gear Digital Servo
Purchased this on February 5th, it is now March 1st and the servo began causing a death wobble. After some diagnosing I found d that the servo was no longer able to fi d or hold center at any kind of throttle. Pull the trigger the car instantly turned right and after straightening it started wobbling. I wont say it's terrible just didnt work for my racing application.

You get what you pay for in everything, I bought 4 of these for scale rigs, they work ok for a while, then the seize up & draw more juice to do the same work, not happy with these at all, I have lots of better quality, more expensive, Savox servos with no issues at all

Savox SW-0231MG "Tall" Waterproof Metal Gear Digital Servo
Purchased this servo to install in my Durango DESC410R V2. I wanted a waterproof servo that didn't cost to much and had good specs. This fit that bill. Also my other Savox servos have been very good so I picked this up. Unfortunately I was unable to install it into the Durango due to the length and width of the case. I knew it was a "tall" standard but I didn't think the couple extra mm's would be an issue. I was wrong. It is also wider then a standard servo. I am not sure if it is because it has a thicker case for the waterproofing or not. It feels like it is well built like my other Savox servo's do. But I have yet to run it in anything because I have no use for it. Not sure what I am going to do with it but when I finally figure it out I will write a review about the performance.
