Miniature Linear Servo for RC - L16R - 140mm - 35:1 - 6V


Miniature Linear Servo for RC - L16R - 140mm - 35:1 - 6V




L16-R miniature linear servos are a big brother to the L12-R line. They operate as a direct replacement for standard rotary servos. They use the same 3 wire connector, ground power and control. Regardless of how you drive your servos, be it with an RC receiver, an Arduino board, or a VEX micro-controller, the L16-R servo will function in place of a regular rotary servo, but offers linear motion.

Our L16 line are constructed using an anodized aluminum shaft, metal gearbox, and steel ball bearings. These quality linear servos are not only built to last, but will look awesome on your model.

Depending on the stroke length that you choose, the L16-R has a mass of between 56g-84g. It's light weight makes the L16-R ideal for applications where you need a higher force, but want to keep the weight down.

The L16-R line includes 9 unique models featuring:

  • Optional stroke lengths of 50mm, 100mm or 140mm
  • 3 gearing options for maximum forces between 50N (11lbs) and 200N (45lbs) and maximum speeds between 8mm/s and 32mm/s
  • Available only in 6V to ensure compatibility with RC receivers


NOTE: The L16-R will not operate plug-and-play with Futaba receivers such as the R6014FS that output 2.7 volts. You will need a Smart Fly Power Expander or Orbit Power Jack to bring the signal level up to 5vdc for the L16-R to operate. 

Actuonix micro linear servos are approved by First Tech Challenge and are compatible with their allowed servo controllers.
