Anyone have an ideal about a good decent price digital servo for the 401? I have found a KO pro po digital for 34.99 and was wondering if it is any good?

Quick...here comes my wife....hide that new Heli !!!!

Good luck. I had less than 50 passes on this tail servo before it melted in flight and caused a nasty one. It's a cute little servo but IMO not up to the task of holding tail

I've had great luck with the S3154. Holds the tail so solid I poped a belt coming out of an insane piro.

My HDS-877 micro-digital servo has worked great for the past 8 months and is only around $25.

How about a 9253 on a trex and 401 gyro? Will this work?

I would think a 9253 would be too heavy for a 450. You would have to fiddle quite a bit with COG and I think it would be aesthetically unpleasing to look at.

I second the JR 3400G. I had the 9650 first, and the JR holds the tail much better.

Note to self....consult the 401 instructions: If you are using ANYTHING other than a Futaba Digital Servo with the 401 gyro, Do Not select digital on the gyro regardless if you have a different brand digital servo. You will fry the servo. I bit the bullet and purchased a Futaba 9650. Very solid heading hold servo. You can pick them up for around $50.00.
