I just purchased a quick .46. I was just wondering if I really needed to by high price digital servos. I was looking at futaba s3151. servocity.com has them on sale. I not to intrested in 3-d flying at this time. I'm feeling the camera aspect to this hoobby. So are the any other options I haven't got a radio yet. Looking at the futuba 7cap.

I outfitted my Concept 60 with some of the best servos available when I first bought it.
S9401's with .14/60 degrees and 44oz/in of torque.
Still flies fine with these servos!

And nobody today would recomend using under 70 oz for a 60 size.

High priced digitals are nice to have and do make the helicopter feel a little nicer, but if you just want to fly around they are not a must

If you are just trying to find out whether you want to be in helis or not, no, but if you plan on being in this for a long time then trying to save on electronics is only going to be temporary. They do make a difference.

I flew the crap out of my Hawk with some old Hitec HS-422, BB standard servos. Even through loops and flips they were fine. When I built my new Hawk I went with JR 811's, there is a difference. If you are using CCPM I would consider tighter servos, but they don't have to be digital.

Hi.
I flew pretty hard 3D with a Raptor 30 and Futaba 3001 servos. Although it worked fine for over a year i would recommend you to buy the most expensive servos you think you can afford.

Servos

Digitals ARE different than analogs because of being totally "centered".. However, you dont need top dollar digital servos, you can get by with "sport digitals"


Digitals are also more precise..

I've got a quick 46 and digital 3151 servos w/ 7chp and 9254 tail.
all ican say is this setup has worked perfect from learning stages well into 3d flight. actually the only problem i have is with my 9254 stripping gears and overheating. if you ever need any setup questions on the quick 46 pm me. also, i've compiled a large list of all the raptor 30/50 parts that are direct bolt-ons for the quick so you don't have to deal with QWW for most parts. -rob

I use HS-5625MG Hitec digitals on my Evo 50, 109 oz. They work great.

If for example, jr puts 811 servos in some of there heli radio packages, why do you feel you need some thing better, unless for example you have a larger size heli.I'm sure the manufactures know what they are doing.
