    Default Gunners Up Servos

    First, please don't think this is a bash the company thread, it's not. Have 3 GU wingers about 6 to 7 months old. 6 servos have been replaced with #7 going out Wed and #8 going this morning. The first went out within the first hour it was in use. These wingers are used 6 days a week but are never left out in the elements. Is anyone else having a problem or is it just these? What can be done other than calling the company?

    Must be something with the new ones. Mine are much older and I've only replaced maybe 2 of them with my oldest winger being about 8 years old. Sounds like a bad batch at the factory.

    I 2nd the bad batch theory. My GU's are 6 years old and I have yet to replace my first servo. One did die last week but I have yet to replace it.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    I'd have to agree, not typical. My GU's are 2 Y/O and I have never had a servo fail.

    Guys I know with older wingers are having no problems. Older wingers working for years without a problem. This sucks trying to train with wingers that just don't hold up. Anyone with newer wingers having problems??

    I have had great luck with both of my GU wingers myself.... But I have to ask the question, Do you have to use GU servos or is there a universal solution? I like to fix things myself but I have never looked at them in 6 years.

    Thanks

    They are just a regular RC car servo.
