Xpert RC is stepping up their game with an all-new line of servos that make us all think, “Why didn’t I think of that!?” The newest Xpert RC servos on display at the 2014 IRCHA event are not only 100% waterproof, but they also feature an innovative quick release connector. As you can see in the photo, the servo wire plugs into your receiver AND into the back of the servo. Replacing a damaged wire no longer means nasty splices or shipping your servo back to have it fixed, simply unplug the damaged wire, and plug in a new one! These new servos are set to be released soon, and we expect a simple, yet innovative idea such as this to help Xpert RC grow even further.
