The KST X08 is an even lighter low/med/high voltage thin metal cased servo. It is especially good for ailerons on DLGs, electric racers, and all models with thin flying surfaces. Although based on the DS245 series the case is further reduced in size, and the gearing has been optimised to improve the torque while keeping an excellent speed. The X08 can be operated from a voltage as low as 3.8V (1S LiPo) or as high as 8.4V (2S LiPo). KST improved its geartrain machining tolerances, and this servo is completely slop free, and equal to products costing twice as much.
The KST X08's high torque, good speed, and 8mm thinness make it suitable for many high performance glider, pylon racers and EDF applications. With up to 2.8kg.cm torque the KST X08 is appropriate for F3K, F5D, F5J, many types of high performance models.
The new V3 version has improved electronics and a better supported servo cable. The servo output arms are all different, with one designed for DLGs with a reduced vertical height.
The extreme reliability and performance of these servos also makes them very suitable for use in film and motion picture industry special effect, robotic, drone, UAV, UAS, academic research, military, and other highly demanding applications.
