What are BK Servos?
BK servos are a new product developed by Bert Kammerer, the project was started while Bert was working on the development of the Goblin 500 helicopter from SAB Heli Division. The Goblin 500 used mini size servos, but unfortunately every single one of these servos available on the market were just not what Bert wanted for testing, they either lacked speed, torque or they centered poorly. After some research, Bert realized that there was just no way to have a fast, strong and accurate servo with these dimensions, therefore the solution was to use a full size servo motor and fit it in a mini size servo case! The BK mini servo employs a full size motor in a mini case, this allows for blazing speeds combined with good centering and plenty of torque.
