E-Max Servos
 
Purchased a Emax servo from Heads Up. I messed up the servo arm. Asked about getting another servo arm.

There reply. You will have to buy another servo. Is that great service or what?:mad:

So I messed up by not knowing that servo arms are not available for this servo.

E Max servos come with a bag of servo arms. I must have 2 dozen spares - want me to send you a couple?

All that means is that HURC does not carry them separate, You cant Blame them for that, They did not Fudge Up the servo arm, But you can Buy them separate from other vendors that do sell them separate.

Oh, black ones, all my E Max arms are white. Not sure what the really long arm that came with the 508 is for - pull-pull systems maybe?

Thanks carpetbagger when I use the servo I will hunt further. I was looking for just the straight one. I have the others. Thanks Chellie my point was if you are going to carry the servo why not carry the servo arms. I am not the fist one to have messed up the servo arms. I really didn't want to deal with one vendor for the servo and another for the extra set of servo arms. In other words this was supposed to be a heads up for Heads Up RC

headsup rc is #1 in customer service. i bought a powerup 450 and the bell housing was loose.i wanted to send it back for replacement but they just sent a new one which arrived a few days later. awesome service and shipping is the best price ever.

jeff may not carry all the stuff hobby king does,but what ever you buy they do backup. i also use emax servos and have lots of spare servo arms. i'd be glad to put a few in an envelope and send them to you. just pm me. stu:ws:

My E Max 508 servos came with that long straight - I have a few spares if you need them. I like the one arm ones for hooking up ailerons on servo-in-wing installs, but back in the day you got a X arm and a disk only so nail clippers on the X arm made short work to get a single arm rig. 508 metal gear servos on sale at HURC for $3.95 now!

I can tell you exactly why they don't carry the servo arms separately, cost. I sold the ES08A servos for $4.49 each and the servo arms alone would be $2.00. It didn't make any sense to carry the arms alone.

Got that right. Back in the `70s & `80s when I had a hobby shop and was punching out a couple dozen Futaba radios a month servos were so expensive folks mounted them in a tray and moved them from plane to plane. Yes, I had gear sets and arms in stock - think the gears ran a few bucks, set of arms about the same. Servos? I seem to recall $25 on up for those buggers. Basic analog, feedback pot, plastic gear servos.
