    I am using the hi torque version. See photos for size comparison to some of my other sail servos, much smaller but heavy.

    At 6 volts here's how they compare torque wise:
    Gobuilda - 21.6 kg/cm
    Hitec 755 - 13.8 kg/cm
    Hitec 815 - 24.7 kg/cm
    Futaba 3802 - 14 kg/cm

    The Futaba at 14kg has always been enough for my 1 Meter boats, so the gobuilda should be more than adequate .

    Please let us know how there work for you. I have been using the Speed version because my loads are so small, but I would use the Torque version in the future for slower speeds. Are you using the Speed version or the Torque version? I would expect the latter to be a better choice for your application.

    Toradog,
    Good post, I also have recently discovered these "gobuilda" servos. I was looking for a sail servo for my US1Meter boat and saw these. They have very high torque and are much smaller than my typical Futaba or Hitec sail servos. I can adjust to the 300 degrees with my DX6, no problem.

    Have not sailed with yet so time will tell if they last under load.

    Joe 😎

    For many years I have been attempting to add some action to my models by animating turrets, catapults, radars, ect. The issue that I always ran into was how to achieve 180 + greater degrees of rotation when I needed it. Radars were no issue, but turrets and the like were. I am no electronics wizard and my computer skills run to opening my browser successfully. I have used gear drive and servo in the past, but they were a pain to rig.
    Recently I found GoBilda servos. Available in standard or high torque versions, these units can be ordered in two different configurations, 1) as a 300 degree rotation proportional servo, and 2) as a 360 degree rotation servo with proportional speed and directional control. Here in the States they run around $28 US. I found that they can be ordered from third parties or direct from the manufacturer. I have used 8 on my current build and am really happy with how they worked. The shop I ordered them from had hardware that allowed easy direct connection between the unit and the servo. NO gears, ect. Here is a link to the manufacturer's page: https://www.gobilda.com/servos/
    No, I do not own stock in the company, sell the servos, or otherwise, I just like that they are available.
    One caveat: most radios will require the use of a servo stretcher in order to get the full 300 degree rotation, so that cost should be figured in to the servo cost as well.⚑
