KST servos? I had to evaluate these servos for myself before I placed orders with KST. So I had my buddy Tuan the tech guy test them out and give some feedback. His findings-
Ok Ali, here are some of the numbers at 6.6v (LiFe):
The accuracy and consistency is not as good as the MKS, JR, Atx.
The deadband is not very consistent as each incremental movement requires either 2-3 micro seconds of signal. Kinda like the JR 378 before.
However, due to the pricing these may represent very good value for the sport flyer.
I ran these all on 6.6v and there were no issues, however under a constant load, these may be effected by the higher voltage, just not sure what the critical point of damage would be.
I also did not test torque yet, I need to pull out my test stand to get to that. Maybe tomorrow.
Let me know if you need more info.

|0-60 degrees||Slow current (A)||Fast Current||Stall Current||Remarks|
|.158||.442||.953||Movements not very smooth, accuracy is decent though not super consistent. Suspect feedback pot is not as accurate as MKS. Rating 1-10 have to say around 7 as MKS would be 9|
|.242||.613||1.036||Same as above|
Having coreless motor, the accuracy seems to be better than the other two KSTs I tested. I am running 6.6 so the current looks low, but this is a decent servo. Again the limiting factor to the servos performance is the pot. With a better pot, I would rate the servo a 8.5 due to value. This would be good for sport flyers.
