Description

The Blue Bird BMS-105HV is a the highest torque servo in the very highly regarded Blue Bird BMS-105HV/106HV/107HV range of 10g servos. At 8.4V the BMS-105HV's torque is 5.3 kg.cm while still having an excellent speed of 0.09 seconds per 60° of movement.

The Blue Bird BMS-105HV is a great HV servo built to the same space saving form factor as the MKS HV6100. It is similarly precise, with no free play in the geartrain, and it is even more powerful and faster than the competing product. The large output spline is identical to Futaba 25 tooth splines, so replacement output arms are readily available. Note the output spline is not the same as MKS so the servo cannot be used with most MKS accesories.

HyperFlight is pleased to be able to supply the complete range of this excellent and increasingly popular range of Blue Bird servos. Many expert modellers are fitting these servos to the latest ultralight F5J models like the Ultima and the Infinity.

Note this servo used to be called the Kawatomo CB-1005HV and some products (eg bearing servo frames) still refer to it under this old part ID.

Very good at first, very bad at the end

I purchased 7 of these servos here at Hyperflight and installed six of them in my new home-made F5J-FAI glider. I was really satisfied with them at first and thought they were a very good alternative to the more expensive 6100. The servos worked really nice for 8-10 months (4-6 flights per week) but one by one, they began to show
centering failure and became completely useless in a few weeks. It seems that the potentiometers get ruined with time. Finally, I had to substitute all of them. I understand that most of the reviews posted here are very possitive, as the servos work perfect initially, but it would be nice if the same reviewers share their opinions again after several months of use.

Fantastic servo

I have these BlueBird 105's in all my contest F5J sailplanes (Euphoria x2, Aspire x2) for Rudder/Elevator, and in 3 DLG's (for a total of 20)- plenty of torque, great centering and very smooth. In my opinion, every bit as good as that other 3-letter brand, at a substantial price difference. I have NEVER had an issue with these servos, and have just purchased a couple more for a new project.


 Review by:

Unfortunately a further 105HV has problems. This time it's poor centering. Variation is +\- 5mm.

Blue bird 105 HV servo

I tried switching over to the Blue Birds from MKS due to all the 5 star reviews. Had one servo out of 3 completely malfunction after first hour of use. Static noise is loud as well. I will be going back to MKS and using these blue birds for spoilers only.

Blue bird 105 HV servo

I bought 15 pieces of this servos for my F5J Explorers. One failed directly after delivery and Neil send me replacement. I thought it was bad luck but after few flights they started to fail one by one.. Definitely quality issue. I was lucky that I didn't crashed my expensive planes. I will make complain to Blue Bird directly.


 Review by:

Blue bird 105 HV servo

I have had 3 of these servos fail on flaps on a light F5J model.
I have had 2 fail directly as supplied from the supplier before installation.
There is clearly a quality control issue with these servos and I will be removing them from all of my models.

Bluee Bird 105HV servo

I was going to use a pair of these for the tip s of a scale glider. After fitting them and hard wiring an extension lead 1 of the sevos had a fault where the output arm just went round and round.As I had modified the lead I could not get a refund, Neiloffered me a half price replacement. I declined a direct replacement and instead went for the MKS eqivalent.So not too impressed!

I wanted to like these

I have purchased over 20 of these servos and ran them in a sunbird, longshot, ahi, and mini-vector and I fly pretty hard aerobatics and these servos failed in every single airframe. I pulled all the servos out of these airframes and sold my remaining stock. I was told initially that some glue got into the case but I was experiencing failures on elevator on my longshot dlg. My guess is the POTs are really inadequate and with HV they will burn out easily. Sometimes the servos would last only a few hard sessions. I was thinking these would be good substitute for the HV6100 but if you fly hard then they will not last long. No issues at all when I switch to the MKS HV6100.

What a little powerhouse!

I originally ordered these for a Snipe DLG...so precise, so fast and so small! Loved it. It has since become my go-to servo for rudder/elevator in F5J/ALES competition planes. Absolutely love them. I have 8 of them in operation on my 4 contest ships and I've never had an issue.

Again- these are fantastic servos, fast, precise and about 30% cheaper than those other brand's servos. I highly recommend them! They are also great for wing servos in gliders (with the IDS servo frames that Neil sells.)

Buy with confidence!

Have not installed servos into glider yet.
Satisfactory test with servo tester.
Excellent service and delivery.
No buzzing.
Very pleased


 Review by:

satisfied customer from Belgium

After a few days, the Bluebird BMS 105 hv. servo supplied. There was a servo that kept running around, but the servo cable was already removed by me, to make it easier to install in the wings so the guarantee was canceled and could not be exchanged. I received a 50% discount on a purchase of a new servo, which I did. Again after a few days this was delivered, which is an excellent service.
I have not yet been able to test the servos in practice, but I am confident. In any case, the servos are fast and play free.

 Review by:

Great servo, purchased ten, waiting to use in models, although have used my jeti servo tester...testing shows good results at 6 volt and 7.2.


 Review by:

I am happy with these Servos. They are very powerful, with good centering, no slop in the geartrain and no ugly noice!
Use them all arround in an NAN Xperience Pro f3j. So far everthing is good. In use since two month, about 10h airtime.
As allways great service and support from Neil!!!


 Review by:

The servo works exactly and vigorously I would at any time I buy it as a servo for a V control unit in a F3J glider


 Review by:

Very good servo, center's very well, very fast and working at 5 V also. The gear and the case are stronger than his opponent's, MKS 6100.


 Review by:

More than Sufficient!

A great alternative to the equivalent MKS, KST, ATLAS etc, at almost half the price. The servo is powerful with good centering, no slop in the geartrain and no noice!!


 Review by:

Great servo

Great servo for the price powerful, good centering, no slop in the geartrain. Quality of a higher price point servo I'm using them in my f3j and f5j models for rudder and elevator. So putting a lot of trust in them.


 Review by:

Great servo great service

A superb alternative to the equivalent MKS at almost half the price. We have eighteen of these in regular use with no issues.
The usual excellent service from Hyperflight of course.

After use report

This is an after use report. Two of the BMS-105HV servos I purchased and using for flaps have completely failed in flight and at the same time. They were being used at 6 volts. Not sure I will purchase again.


 Review by:

Bluebird CB 1005HV/Kawatomo 10mm 10.9g 4.8kg.cm se

These little servos are gems! I believe that in many ways they are superior to the Mks 6100 that they resemble so closely. Zero slop, superb resolution and entering with quite amazing power and speed.
For less than £20 they are quite remarkable, we have a dozen of these in service and they all behave and sound the same!


 Review by:

Kawatomo (blue bird) cb-1005HV servo

As a devotee of MKS 6100 servos I had to try these,but didn't expect too much. I bought four, they sound and before identically to each ,centre perfectly and are at the very least as fast and powerful as the originals. I will certainly buy more. Of course the service from hyperflight was as usual superb.


 Review by:

good servo but better all Hyperfligth.co.uk and Neil for after market service!


 Review by:

Excellent servos, very good centering and very good price!!


Comment by:

Blue Bird CB-1005HV

A very nice servo that centre's well, is quick and not too expensive. Although not installed in a glider they perform just fine in my EDF Hawker Hunter. They are much better at returning to centre than some of my recent Hitec purchases. Recommended.


 Review by:

At last! Excellent Micros at a reasonable price.

All five servos are excellent! No play and exact centering. First rate service from Hyperflight.
