I'm using the ace 1016s. They are cheap and analog, but they do alright for my style of flying. Will worn you though, if you crash with the plastic geared servos, you will more than like strip the gears and need replacement gears.

Man, I miss the eighties.

HS65mgs are a very solid choice for any 450, plenty fast and you wont be replacing gears everytime you bump the blades.

this is why I love the hs56's,and apparently I am the only one on the planet who still uses them which as far as I'm concerned is awesome cause you can get them at a good price

the reasons i like them are,affordable, fast and plenty of torque for 3d,on an E325 they fit with NO mods and no spacers needed and everything lines up perfect,gear sets are 4.00 and since you can literally remove a servo in about 15 sec,its a breeze to change gears

I actually like the fact that the gears will go first as it serves 2 purposes,one, the impact is not transfered to any head parts and 2 its not being sent to the servo motor or pot.

now on other helis,this may not be desirable but on the 325 since the servos are so accessable,its no big deal

its not like the karbonite gears break that easy either,i've had plenty of crashes and only had to replace gears a couple of times,so I think its a good trade off in this situation

I got tired of changing those dinky gears, since I bought 65mg's I went through several 450 helis and a bunch of crashes and never had a problem with a servo.

It sounds like those HS56's might be the best choice if they line perfectly. Ultimately that is probably the most important thing, the geometry. I am afraid the JR servos will be too slow.

I like the hs56's,it takes a good crash to break a gear.I know ,I've had a few.Rather replace a cheap gear than something more expensive,or even worse is out of stock in your LHS.
They are the perfect fit for this helicopter,all square and straight without any shims or widening the servo mounts ,just looks right.Quicker and lighter than the65's, but not as much torque.
Anyone know how much we really need.

I use the hs56 karbonite gears and they work great in the E325. I don't fly hard 3D with it, but it has been flown hard by a friend of mine and they respond well to his style of hard 3d with quick stops.
I only stripped one gear in a crash (4 crashes total) and the one crash I went in in Idle-up 1

Who raised the ground since I took off?

65HB's for me. Never broken one yet even with some full throttle impacts (learning aerobatics)! I fly them on 6V and the speed is more than needed for fast cyclic response!

Though I doubt a servo ever gets worn-out enough to show it, Karbonite has almost zero wear as opposed to metal gears.

Well, I'm going for it. Ordered. JR 287mg digitals for swash and Futaba 9257 for the tail from Readyheli. Still, it cost less than the JR package deal.

Good quality servos but I hope those 287 have enough torque for cyclic???

well they have the same torque as HB56 and JR servos are usually way under spec'd. The expert I spoke to at Ready heli says they'll work great, I just trusted the guy. Now I'll find out for sure....
