ProTek RC 170SBL Black Label High Speed Brushless Servo.

Brushless servo technology has improved by leaps and bounds. Finally, brushless servos can deliver holding power, speed and precision that can compete with a coreless servo. Combine that with the superior efficiency and lifespan of a brushless motor and you have a servo that hits all the marks, with the performance and quality required for a pro level build. 

A black anodized aluminum case with aluminum and white accents give this servo a stealthy look that sets it apart from the rest. The aluminum upper case provides bomb proof durability and the heat sink center case offers efficient heat dissipation and helps to reduce weight. The lead wire is detachable, allowing you to easily custom tailor the servo lead to your application, and the package includes both 135mm and 285mm length servo leads. Plus, a full selection of servo arms and mounting hardware are included making installation easy.

NOTE: If you experience glitching or poor performance while using a Futaba transmitter, you must turn off BLS mode. BLS mode is only compatible with Futaba BLS type servos.

  • Ideal for any 1/10 to 1/8 surface application that requires lightning fast response
  • Full aluminum black anodized case
  • High voltage circuitry
  • 0.09 transit speed, and 458 oz-in of torque @ 6.0V

These protek servos are Imo the best on the market hands down and with a awesome company like amain having your back and will fix 99% of any issues Imo it would be senseless to go with any other servo out there unless you use because of a big name or something , These servos are seriously BADASS

The 170 is by far the best servo I've used to date. The detachable leads is key and I can only hope that trend continues with future protek models. I've been using Protek's for a while now and even though they have caught up to other "top brands" in price they've always matched them in performance in reliability and the 170 is no different. I'd recommend this servo to anyone!

All I can say is WOW! This is my first ProTek servo and I am so impressed! I put it in my 1/8 ebuggy and it is incredible. I love the detachable servo leads too.

I will slowly be replacing all my other servos with this one. Highly recommend!

Great servo. It is my first time trying out the ProTek servos and it has proved to be a top notch from my experience so far.
It has taken a good amount of beating but it is still going very strong.
The finish on this is phenomenal. For about the same price, you're getting a brushless high speed servo that can cost you twice as much when you buy other brands.

Give it a try!

Good servos but they have a glitching issue with the Futaba 4PX. This is a known issue according with Amain support team, right now not using them because I am not able to solve the problem at least from my side.

More power than you could ever need for 1/10 and 1/8 applications. Perfect for an 1/8 nitro racing throttle servo or as a steering servo in 1/10 classes to get that solid holding strength when pushing your cars limits.

Was blown away with the performance of the protek 130ss. I wanted to try the 170sbl. Wow. This servo is in the top 5 best performing servos on the planet today! Some of the best centering i have ever seen! And. As far as build quality goes. Hands down the finest constructed servo i have ever seen.

This servo is just what the doctor ordered for 1/8 buggy- I've ran these in several different buggies and performance is flawless, and with Amain's second to none customer service it's a no brainer

I purchased this servo for the Tekno SCT410.3 I ordered, and it is amazing. I had just installed the 170TBL in the Tekno Truggy I ordered a couple weeks before, and I've been so impressed with both of them that I recently ordered the waterproof crawler version as well. These Protek black label servos are all I'm using going forward. They are so quiet, fast and powerful that nobody would ever need more. Plus the removable harness and short and long options (included) is an added bonus that more companies should be offering. A++++!

ProTek RC 170SBL Black Label High Speed Brushless Servo (High Voltage)
I originally purchased an MKS HBL599 Servo which had an issue and when I called to exchange it they talked me into their 170SBL instead so I agreed to try it. Upon connecting the servo in my Tekno MT410 I noticed the steering was reversed with the settings "Normal" in my transmitter. In 25 years of RC Boats and Cars I've never seen a servo rotate clockwise when the steering is turned clockwise as they are always opposite the transmitter steering input with the steering reversing in the normal position. Most manufacturers of cars and boats design around those standard parameters because not everyone has the ability to reverse servos on low end transmitters especially years ago. I called Amain to inform them of this and the "Technical" person had no clue which direction the servo should rotate in the standard position. I then asked if he could ask the designer and he did so and said he also had no clue which direction they should rotate?!? This tells me they simply rely on a manufacturer in Taiwan to design all their products with no specifications other than maybe a sample part they send over to copy. That is not confidence inspiring to say the least. Obviously I can reverse my steering in my transmitter and use the servo but that should not be necessary if they simply would specify which way to wire their servo's at the factory. It becomes a pain to reset everything if I need to make a quick servo change when every other servo I have is the correct direction which has been industry standard for over 25 years.

Another point was the "technical" person thought they were programmed at the factory and had no knowledge of what makes a servo rotate one way or the other so I had to explain how that worked as well. He then said he changed his throttle servo in his personal 1/8 buggy recently and had to reverse the servo settings from his previous Protek servo he was using so that tells me they were one direction before and recently changed. How can they not have a specification on the orientation of their servos???

I'll definitely use MKS in the future as I know they do all their own design rather than leaving their vendor to sort out the details.
