HS-5087MH Servo

The HS-5087MH digital metal gear micro servo is the high voltage version of Hitec’s popular HS-5085MG. Built with a 3-pole ferrite motor and heavy-duty metal gears, this servo will bring maximum performance to your project and deliver extra power with a 2-cell 7.4V LiPo battery. Whether you are a beginner or an expert in the RC field, the HS-5087MH will provide the strength and capability you need and want in a micro servo. Drivers will find it the perfect steering servo for their 1/16th scale vehicles. Pilots with .15 to .40-size glow and electric aircraft will relish its power and reliability. Its precision and performance also make it perfect for 500-size helicopters.

How Far Will This Servo Rotate?

The answer to this question is partially dependant on what you are using to control the servo.

Stock:

With an Average Radio System:
80°
Your average transmitter and receiver will output a relativly narrow PWM signal range.

Radio System + Servo Stretcher:
133°
Adding a Servo Stretcher to your radio system setup will allow you to achieve wide PWM signal ranges.

Wide Signal Controllers:
133°
Controllers such as the Actobotics® Servo Controller, Arduinos, and Raspberry Pi servo hats can usually send a wide signal.

Reprogrammed:

Whether you purchase the reprogrammed option or get a servo programmer and do it yourself, a reprogrammed version of this servo will be able to achieve greater travel than it can in stock form.

With an Average Radio System:
106°
Your average transmitter and receiver will output a relativly narrow PWM signal range.

Radio System + Servo Stretcher:
177°
Adding a Servo Stretcher to your radio system setup will allow you to achieve wide PWM signal ranges.

Wide Signal Controllers:
177°
Controllers such as the Actobotics® Servo Controller, Arduinos, and Raspberry Pi servo hats can usually send a wide signal.
