These are Hitec HS-5475HB servos with the electronics removed. These units can easily be converted to continuous-rotation gearmotors by clippling off the rotation limitation nub on the output gear. The output shaft is supported by two ball bearings, and the geartrain uses four heavy-duty Karbonite gears.

These servos have the standard Hitec output shafts with 24-tooth splines while our assortment of Futaba wheels and sprockets are intended for output shafts with 25-tooth splines. However, plastic on the wheels is soft enough to allow the Futaba wheels and sprockets to be forced (without too much effort) onto the Hitec servo output shaft.
