This is the ProTek R/C 130T Digital Hi-Torque Metal Gear High Voltage Servo. ProTek R/C Servos have been developed to provide enthusiasts with high quality servo's that will exceed expectations at every level. With features that meet or surpass what our competition can provide, ProTek R/C servos deliver performance and unmatched value, with industry leading customer support.
The ProTek R/C 130T High Voltage Hi-Torque servo delivers an incredible 288 oz-in of torque with a 0.10 transit speed at 6.0V, and when you bump the voltage to 7.4 the spec's increase to 355 oz-in and 0.08! Spec's like these make this servo an excellent choice for any 1/10 to 1/8 scale vehicle application. Other features include a full metal gear train that is supported by dual ball bearings, a 200mm long 22awg connector wire with gold plated connectors, a coreless motor and an aluminum middle case that helps to dissipate heat and helps to increase efficiency.
Plus, instead of a cheap plastic servo horn, ProTek R/C goes the extra mile with an included aluminum single arm servo horn that will stand up to a majority of the punishment you can throw at it. Stop wasting your money on budget servos that look good in the spec list, but fall short when its time to perform. Get ProTek and don't look back.
Warning! This ProTek R/C servo requires that you use a m3x10mm screw to attach the servo horn to the output shaft. If you choose to use another screw, be sure to use a 10mm length screw. Use of a shorter screw can cause failure and will void your warranty.

This has all the initial makings of a fantastic servo, especially for the price! Many of us bought these servos when they were discounted 20%. Unfortunately, there's a down side. The protek servos (purportedly manufactured by Futaba) often begin to suffer from what many refer to as the "futaba shakes." This has happened to 3 of the 4 protek servos (130S and 130T) that I have bought. All of these servos have been used as steering servos in a 1/8 buggy. The servos that developed the "shakes" happened shortly after I began using them (with less than 1 hour of run time). The "shakes" happen after turning the servo and allowing it to re-center. The servo begins vibrating vigorously. This is only prominent when no load is on the servo (when the buggy is lifted in the air on a stand). Supposedly this is caused by the servo having difficulty digitally finding center. A-main does have fabulous customer service, though. Hopefully they'll work to get this issue solved quickly. Or they'll post a notice giving a solution... or saying the "shakes" don't affect performance. I'm sorry to have to post a bad review, but I want to help my fellow hobbyists out there save some of the confusion and frustration that I've had.
I bought 2 of these servos for my MBX6R. I ran the servos on 1 club weekend at fear-farm in Arizona and then went to Gas Champs at Thunder Ally in Beaumont Calif. Ran the whole race weekend with no problems. Servos worked flawlessly the whole time. Very fast and god Tq used servos at 7.4 volts, no shakes or glitching a very well made servo for the price great job Pro-Tec.
I recently bought this servo for my E buggy. So far this is an outstanding servo!! I run it at 7.4 volts and it has plentyyyy of torque and speed! I have seen no issues with servo glitching or centering issues. It's a very quiet servo and I look forward to buying more for my nitro buggy.
I've been running these servos in my 1/10th scale vehicles for quite a while. They give me all the speed and strength you'll ever need. For the price and warranty that ProTek provides on it's products, they cannot be beaten.
Great servo and specs for the price ! I've ran it in ebuggy and 4wd SCT no shakes for me
I use these servos in all of my racing applications, including 1/10th Short Course racing. The large, heavy tires on a SC truck can prove a real challenge for your steering servo, and for two years running now the 130T has been up to the task. I also use this product in my stadium truck, 2wd, and 4wd buggies - all the vehicles I race week in and week out.
A lot of people will look at ultimate speed to rate and compare a servo, but in my experience it's the torque that matters. The fastest transit time in the world doesn't matter if the servo can't hold your steering properly heading into a high-speed sweeper. Even at the lower 6.0V rating (the standard BEC voltage of nearly all speed controls) the 130T provides a massive 288 oz-in of torque, and yet costs only $90. Hard to find more power for your buck!
This servo has been nothing but great since I installed it on my 8ight T 2.0, and just recently up graded 8ight T 3.0. I am running 7.4 Lipo and it is fast and strong. I am not sure about the shakes other people have been talking about I have not experienced any problems with mine at all. You have to make sure to set the end points up and use your servo saver. Great servo, and I highly recommend.
Have 2 races on mine and they perform perfect. Use 1 for throttle and 1 for steering in nitro and 1 for steering in ebuggy.. Zero issues and will continue to use.. Great product and Great price.
I bought this servo last season, been using it in my Losi 8ight T E-truggy all of last year with no problems at all. Great servo for the money.
I run this in my MT and have had ZERO problems with it (going on about 2 gallons). Highly recommended. I've had more issues with my HiTec 7955 than this.
i have been using this servo in my mugen, and my pro4 sc, and it just takes all the abuse, what a great servo...
This is an amazing servo. None of the shakes the other people are talking about. This is a high voltage servo. Using it you will probably need a capacitor. This will solve any brown outs you are having. Tons of torque and lots of speed. Highly recommended.
I bought my servo back in early 2013 when I was cleaning my savage up. I put this servo in with a 6.0v battery. At the same time I installed a new bellcrank so I was trying to get the servo saver set write. I'm am still not sure it the servos weak performance was do to a loose servo saver or a bad servo. But to this day the servo is still working. I have recently installed a 7.4v lipo battery and the sevor continuously has brown outs like the savox servos have. I still felt the servo was weak so I have just finished tighting the servo savor. I like the quality of the servo I want to put one as my throttle servo but I am worried it too will have brown outs...
same "shake" as Bryan on the 2 pieces I have tried !!!!!
I've been using these servos in my 10th scale buggies for a while now and they work great. Very smooth yet powerful. I haven't had one go out or seen anyone having issues with them.
