    Futaba Programmable Servos

    Now R/C cars and trucks can enjoy the many advantages of Futaba S.Bus2 servo technology (first seen in the aircraft world).

They stand up to jolts and vibration better, offer smoother operation, and programmable capability allows drivers to fine-tune performance to meet specific applications.
