The Blue Bird BMS-126WV
is optimised or both good speed and good torque
, making it the medium option in the new Blue Bird BMS-125WV/126WV/127WV
range of 11g servos. At 8.4V the BMS-126WV's torque is still a very impressive 5.3 kg.cm while having an excellent speed of 0.07 seconds per 60° of movement. These are still very impressive speed and torque figures, making it good for most applications. It is suitable for all control surfaces except flaps on F5J models, most gliders up to 3.5 m wingspan and many RC sports models and helicopters. At 10 mm thick it is suitable for mounting in small fuselages and thin wings and tails.
in the name stands for Wide Voltage, indicating that this servo has wide range of acceptable supply voltages and is suitable for 1S LiPo, 4 or 5 cell NiMH and 2S LiPo operation.
The Blue Bird BMS-126HV
is a great servo built to the same space saving form factor as the MKS HV6100/DS6100. 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 accessories.
Although it looks like the BMS-105HV
the new BMS-126 WV
uses better components and an improved internal design and does not suffer the longevity problems that affected some high hours BMS-105 installations. The BMS-106HV was not affected by the problem anyway.
