HS-53 Servo


The HS-53 is Hitec’s economical feather servo, designed to compete head to head with the influx of low cost servos, while still maintaining their renowned quality. Designed with a durable nylon gear train and an efficient three-pole cored motor, this light-weight servo is a terrific fit for small power planes and gliders. Priced right, it is sure to become a universal favorite!

How Far Will This Servo Rotate?

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

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

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

Wide Signal Controllers:
Controllers such as the Servo Commander, Arduinos, and Raspberry Pi servo hats can usually send a wide signal.
