FEETECH Standard Servo FS5106B
The FS5106B is a general-purpose, low-cost standard analog servo from FEETECH. Two ball bearings help reduce friction and improve performance. Servo horns and associated hardware are included. This servo can work with both 5 V and 3.3 V servo signals.
Key specs at 6 V: 0.16 sec/60°, 83 oz-in (6 kg-cm), 41 g.

The FS5106B is a general-purpose standard-size analog servo from FEETECH. The output shaft is supported by two ball bearings for reduced friction. The FS5106B works with standard RC servo pulses, providing a running angle of approximately 180° over a servo pulse range of around 700 µs to 2300 µs, and it has a 12″ (30 cm) cable that is terminated with a standard JR-style connector, which is Futaba-compatible. You can find more information about this servo in its datasheet (133k pdf).
This servo is also compatible with our Mounting Bracket for Standard-Size Servos:
For more advanced robotics applications, please note that we also carry a version of this servo that is specially modified to provide access to the feedback potentiometer through a fourth (green) wire, which lets you monitor the actual position of the servo from your controller:

Note that, as with most hobby servos, stalling or back-driving this servo can damage it.
FS5106B vs FS5106R
Two versions of this servo are available. This product is the FS5106B, which offers closed-loop position control over a limited range (approximately 180°). Alternatively, the FS5106R was designed specifically for open-loop speed control over an unlimited range. The FS5106B and FS5106R have identical dimensions and use the same motor and gear reduction.
Comparison to the Power HD 6001HB servo
This servo is a lower-cost alternative to the 6001HB from Power HD, which has nearly identical dimensions and similar performance. The two servos should be generally interchangeable for most applications. The picture below shows both the FS5106B and the 6001HB side by side:
