Thoughts on MKS HV777 and Savox SV-1270TG

Discussion in 'RC Radio Systems' started by Notorious B.E.N., Oct 11, 2015.

  1. I'm going to start collecting servos for my Dalton 300 I'm building. I was wanting to know what people have to say about the MKS HV777 and the Savox SV-1270TG. Both are about the same power and both feature Titanium gears. So what do you prefer or have to say about either servo?

    MKS 777, no questions, hands down.

    Won't elaborate but since I switched no slop, no failures, no jitter, etc.

    I have a few MKS 777's and so far they have been great!

    I had some 777s about 6 years ago. Smoothest gear train of any servo I have ever owned. Had a couple of pots go bad but they never developed any slop in the gear train. Wish I had held on to them.

    I used the think 1270's were awesome until I switched to MKS....i now have about 20 or so 1270's just collecting dust. Go with MKS for sure.

    I just purchased a pile of MKS 777's after much research and info learned here and elsewhere. The Savox 1270's were another leading contender but service and multiple problems being reported was an issue.

    How loud are the 777's. I know it is silly but I had the Savox 1270,s I think it was 1270'so and it was annoying how loud they were at idle on the ground.

    Mine are all silent minus the weight of the surface. Then only a hum, not the chatter you may be thinking of.
  9. I don't think you will be disappointed. My shop sell both of them and I use both. The Savox 1270s are good servos but for the price difference you can't beat quality of the MKS. The tolerance on the MKS gear train and output spline are very tight and they are one of the quietest servos that I have used. If you want to check one out let me know.

    I was really impressed with the gear train on the 777's out of the box. Compared to say the Hitec Ti gears which feel all gritty when moved hand, the MKS gears are some of the smoothest you will ever feel. They aren't any louder than any JR servo I've used, in fact they might be the quietest of all I've used. I just bought some Savox 1267's and 1268's for anothe project and they are easily the loudest servos I've ever installed.

    My big test when I buy servos is centering, I can't stand a servo that won't center and the MKS servos appear to center great.
