KST X10 MINI wing servo

The KST X10 Mini V2 wing servo is a wide voltage servo ideal for use in glider wings and other models with thin airfoils.
Features
•    Slim 10 mm body
•    Excellent 7.5 Kg.cm torque
•    Compact and light weight design
•    Good torque and speed
•    Wide 4S NiMH to 2S LiPo voltage range
•    Excellent heat dissipation
•    7075 Alloy casing
•    Hardened Steel gears
•    Designed for lightweight high performance RC Gliders

 
With only slightly less torque than the larger MKS HV6130. The KST X10 V2 Mini has a hardened steel drive train and a coreless motor capable of running all the way from 4.8V to 8.4V (4S NiMH to 2S LiPo) making these servos ideal for electric-powered models (most ESCs output 5.5V) as well as most gliders. With its high power output, metal gear train and being 10mm thin this is ideal for flaps especially.
The accessories included are two strong nylon output arms, and one metal arm allowing very strong linkages to be used.

KST X08 V6.0 Digital Metal Gear 2.8kg Wing Servo

Features
•    Metal geared servo
•    Perfect for ailerons on discus launched gliders, electric racers, and all models with thin flying surfaces
•    Now programmable with the KST Tool #1 (sold separately)
Product Information
 
The KST X08 is especially good for ailerons on discus launched gliders, electric racers, and all models with thin flying surfaces. Despite being only 8 mm thick the powerful coreless DC motor and gearing provide good torque and high speed. The X08 can be operated from a voltage as low as 3.8V (1S LiPo) or as high as 8.4V (2S LiPo). KST servos have excellent geartrain machining tolerances, and this servo is completely slop-free and equal to products costing twice as much. Despite not having an -MG moniker this servo has metal gears and is very tough.
The KST X08's high torque, good speed, and 8mm thinness make it suitable for many high-performance gliders, pylon racers and EDF applications. With up to 2.8kg.cm torque the KST X08 is appropriate for F3K, F5D, F5J, many types of high-performance models.
The new V6 version has the same great specifications as the V5 but allows programming using KST's new programming tools.
The extreme reliability and performance of these servos also make them very suitable for use in film and motion picture industry special effect departments. They are also used in robotic, drones, UAVs, UAS, academic research, military, and other highly demanding applications.

KST X08H PLUS V2 wing servo


Features
•    Slim 8 mm body
•    Compact and light weight design
•    Good torque and speed
•    Metal gears
•    Designed for high performance RC Gliders, pylon racers and EDF applications
Product Information
 
The KST X08H Plus V2 is a version of the KST X08 Plus servo with horizontal mounting lugs (also called mounting tabs), making it suitable for use in thin wings and other flying surfaces. The KST X08H Plus V2 is a very light (9.5 g) wide voltage, metal cased, metal-geared servo. It is based on the well regarded KST X08H V5 servo but with a larger motor fitted.
It is especially good for ailerons on F5J & F3J gliders, electric racers, and all models with thin flying surfaces. Despite being only 8 mm thick the powerful coreless DC motor and gearing provide good torque and high speed. The X08H Plus V2 can be operated from a voltage as low as 3.8V (1S LiPo) or as high as 8.4V (2S LiPo). KST servos have excellent gear train machining tolerances, and this servo is completely slop free, and equal to products costing twice as much. This servo has metal gears and is very resilient to impact with terra firma.
The KST X08H Plus's high torque, good speed, and 8mm thinness make it suitable for many high-performance gliders, pylon racers and EDF applications. With up to 5.3 kg.cm torque the KST X08 is appropriate for F5J, F5D, F3J and many other types of high-performance models.
