These are some bold electronics individually, but as a combo this is a pretty ferocious setup in any vehicle.
Reedy’s RT1508 Digital Competition Servo is part of their new line of HV servos. It uses an advanced microprocessor, has a full set of metal gears and features an aluminum case to keep operating temps under control.
The HV, or High Voltage, feature means it’s compatible with LiPo RX batteries or can be used with an ESC that has boosted BEC output voltage. It also uses dual ball bearings and has a 25T spline. Here are the internal specs:
