Following the Sanwa ERS-971 LRP introduce more servos made by the Japanese manufacturer. Available are also the ERS-961 (0.05s/12.3kg-cm) and ERS-951 (0.06s/11kg.cm) standard voltage digital servos and the ERS-962 (0.07s/25.3kg-cm) digital high voltage servo. The ERS-962 and ERS-961 offer coreless motors, dual ball bearings and tough metal gears. With the speed and torque the 962 sports it is ideal for the use in 1/8th on-road and off-road vehicles while the 961 is best used in electric cars, buggies and trucks. The 951 though is an economically priced high-performance general purpose offering. Last but not least come the 94835 (0.13s/8.9kg-cm) and 94846 (0.18s/10.8kg) digital budget line servos. The two five digit servos are ball raced, economically priced and ideal to replace the steering and throttle servos of RTR cars and trucks.

Hitec introduce two new servo lines in the form of the HSB-93 and HSB-94 servos suitable for virtually any 1/10th and 1/8th scale application. Starting with the HSB-9360TH (0.06s/17kg-cm), HSB-9370TH (0.10s/25kg-cm) and HSB-9380TH (0.14s/34kg-cm), the servos offer an ultra-efficient Neu Castle brushless motor, titanium gears and a red anodised aluminium middle heatsink case. A low current consumption and the ability to run the servos with 6.0V to 7.4V input makes the servo ideal for electric and nitro applications alike. The second new servo line are the HSB-94 servos with the HSB-9465SH (0.07s/13.5kg), HSB-9475SH (0.10s/19.4kg) and HSB-9485SH (0.15s/26kg). The pro level hobby servos are equipped with Neu Castle brushless motors, a steel gear train and they offer an ultra low current consumption. Like the 93-series servos they are build to handle 6.0V to 7.4V input voltage for unregulated use of 2S LiPo receiver battery packs.
