I've got a raptor 30 and was wondering which servos I should use. For the the tail I was going to go with the GY401gyro and s9254 combo other than that I don't know.

Thanks

502 9254 combo - this is more expensive but will be good for 3D in the long run

For starting out you can use basic servos. The ones that come with the tx and rx will be fine for starting. You can always get better ones as your progress. Get the 401/9254 combo, you can't go wrong there. Once you get better you will probably get digitals to be more precise. The futaba 3001 ones work fine for starting out.

Just use cheapo servos, save your nice servo money for when you get a 50 or 60 size bird. Unless of course you have lots of extra money, in which guess get digitals!

Inexpensive servos work fine ...

I'd just like to mention that you need to make sure the servos are "heli rated". The 3001 standard servos will work fine, but the 3004 standard servos aren't rated for use in heli's and may fail prematurely due to the vibration.

I'd suggest to use inexpensive servos for now and spend your money on fuel. At this point in the learning curve, burning fuel will improve your flying much more than expensive servos.

later then you may upgrade them to some faster servos like 9252 or the latest 9255 ........

JR 811 sport digital servos work well. I have hitec HS-425BB in my raptor 30 and they work great.

A skilled pilot without flight discipline is a walking time bomb.

Hi
the there are so many servo's to choose, it really depends on what you want to achieve.

If you want a stable hover then go digital, many say there is no need, i disagree,
The servos i use on my Fury extreme 90 and my Raptor 30 are a 401 gyro with a 9253, then on the throttle a futaba 3001 servo as there is no load on throttle hence a cheap servo, then on cyclic i use jr ds8231, these are cheaper than futaba and they use less current than the futaba digital servos,
these are a good investment and will carry you through to advance 3d.
