Big Torque in a small housing, this T-180 Lo-Pro Servo gives you plenty of options on the track. Designed to give you the industry’s highest per degree resolution steering and plenty of speed to keep that chassis where you want it.

Full Metal Gear set, All Aluminum Housing, Digital Position Encoding and loads of Torque, this servo keeps you in control. Fine-tune your setup with an extensive set of adjustments via Tekin’s HotWire PC Interface.

The Difference is in the Design
Tekin servos are crafted from the highest quality materials available. CNC Precision Cut gears provide an extremely smooth and efficient drive train. 6061-T6 machined aluminum 3-piece o-ring housings provide strength and protection from the elements while the finish quality and design are second to none. Sleek chamfered edges and bold lines combined with a matte anodized finish are sure to accent any build.

Included with the T-180 Lo-Pro Servo is a machined aluminum Vector 25T servo arm.

Advanced Technology:

  • Digital Magnetic Position Encoder (DPE): Our servos use Digital Magnetic Position Encoding (DPE) rather than a standard potentiometer, which gives Tekin servos industry leading accuracy, linearity and consistency.
  • Accuracy: Precise linear movement through the entire motion range with less than .2 degrees of deviation from start point to end point make Tekin the superior performance product.  Low deviation DPE technology translates to pinpoint accuracy not found in other potentiometer servos, which tend to wander and center poorly and get worse as they age. Tekin is built to last at peak performance.
  • Linearity: Potentiometer servos can be up to seven degrees non-linear from end point to end point, creating a disconnected feel from your transmitter. Tekin servos eliminate this disconnect, giving you a linear feel and more precise control over your servo movement and position.
  • Consistency: Performance is important but we are all about consistent performance. Potentiometer performance drifts due to many variables; heat, age, component quality, etc. DPE is a rock-solid, repeatable and consistent technology bringing an unmatched consistency to Tekin servos. Tired of constantly trimming your servo and having response feel different during times of longer usage? Tekin servos are the answer.
  • Efficiency: Accuracy drives efficiency. A servo that has to work less to center or stop without overshooting position is using less energy. This means less heat build-up, less component fatigue and longer life.
  • Adaptability: Tekin Servos come with a series of unique features; DPE technology lets you set the center point anywhere, and servo travel limits can be set without reducing the End Point Adjustments (EPA’s) on your transmitter.  Most servos are limited to 90° travel in each direction with a physical stop point; DPE means that Tekin servos can be programmed to travel beyond 360°-- up to 5 full rotations in each direction!
  • Element Proof: Dependable, no matter the terrain. Element Proof Tekin products are designed to handle water, mud & snow within reasonable restrictions. While we are not afraid to take on the elements, submerging is not recommended.

Tekin T-180 Low Profile Digital Hi-Torque Programmable Servo (High Voltage)
After taking a 5 year break from the RC hobby to do responsible things like start a career and buy a house, I came back in August of 2018 with a bang. Over the next 2 years I had built 4 1/8 Tekno kits, 2 1/10 Tekno's, 3 TLR 1/8 kits, 5 1/10 TLR's, 2 Associated 1/10 kits and a couple crawlers. Every rig prior to the last 3 Ive installed Protek 160 and 170 series servos which have been perfect, but when I grabbed my B6.2 in Septemeber I decided to try the Tekin T-120 and I was blown away with the quality and precision of it. A couple weeks later when I bought a Tekno EB410.2 kit I picked up this Tekin T-180 and just like the 120, its the perfect servo for a 4wd 1/10. Unmatched quality, machine work and absolutely zero slop in the gears. The aluminum case looks amazing to top it all off.

Great when they work. I bought 2. 1 went bad on our 2nd track day. Sent it in for warranty and they said the board went bad. The 2nd one the metal gears inside went bad after maybe 8-10 track days in 2 months(No serious or bad crashes). Tekin's customer service though has been great so far.

Tekin T-180 Low Profile Digital Hi-Torque Programmable Servo (High Voltage)
Coming back from the hobby after almost 20 years, I decided to give Tekin products a try, including their line of servos. I bought three total, including one for my Serpent X20 '21 Touring Car, and I haven't been disappointed. Love the ability to customize the servo with the Hotwire. You can set the absolute center and maximum travel on either side at any point, then save it. I took advantage of this feature and it's nice to have my radio's trim and subtrim set to 0. I'm really happy with my choice, and dare I say, until I get my skills (or what's left of them) up to speed, this servo is pretty much outperforming me at the moment - but the good thing about Hotwire is that you can even slow the servo down a bit from max if you want.

The other two are for my Serpent 750 EVO, so I'm really looking forward to seeing how they perform on that car!
