The KST DS135MG servo is a slim 10mm wing servo that can also fit many smaller wing pockets thanks to it's 30mm x 30mm dimensions. Don't worry, it still packs a lot of torque in this small space, and has excellent centering and tight gears.
This Servo is sure to be a favorite for high speed gliders, sport planes and anywhere you need a tough reliable servo that works as good as it looks.

Website won't allow review DS145MG, the following reviews DS145MG. Both Aloft and KST web sites currently have "0.10sec/60°@6.0V, 0.12sec/60°@4.8V" specs shown. Printed on my DS145MG box is "0.12sec/60°@6.0V, 0.15sec/60°@4.8V". Please tell me more about DS145 motor type and bearings. Since KST does not supply, giving detailed dimensions for all KST servos would help - particularly baseplate to bottom of servo and perhaps mounting hole centers and servo horn length.
I just received the servos and won't be using them until this fall because I will be retrofitting an old plane with them.
They look like they will do the job nicely and really make a large improvement in the way the plane will fly.
I will let you know how they work after putting them to work.
Thanks Rick D
My buddy and I have these in our 10Lb Lead sleds we use for slope flying. We punished these wing servos for a couple of years now and mine still work great! I noticed a little slop developing but nothing a new set of gears can't fix. My buddy stripped a gear on one doing a cart wheel landing so that don't count.
They are fast, strong and tough.
Using these in a 2-servo thin wing for Q40 racing. At speeds approaching 200 MPH, need accurate, fast control with excellent centering. Vibration environment is intense. After over a year of racing, these have stood the test of time, and perform better than "brand" names at a fraction of the cost. Compared to some other digitals, they are quiet as well.
Been using the KST servos for the last year. I'm leaving a review on the 135, but they are all great, and I use most all of them. The wing servos are nice and skinny, and have been perfect. No issues. Gears are tight, centering is good, and they look great too. I like the 135s for planes with smaller wings, or small servo pockets, and the larger 125 for bigger planes. I tend to use the 115s for tails, they are super fast and super accurate. I will never use any Hitec servos again. Nothing but problems with their wing servos. These KSTs cost less and work much, much better.
