I posted this question on another forum but a friend suggested I post it here since it may get more traffic.

Futaba advertise the BLS252 for F3C. I'm curious as to what makes them good for contest flying. What servos do people like to use for F3C? Besides centering, what are some of the things I should look for?

I have no idea what the logic would be on advertising a servo as better for F3C. Good servos are fast, powerful, and center properly.

The best servos work the best on any setup, PERIOD.

Since FC3 helis are usually setup with soft damping, you can get away with a lesser servo then you could a tight 3D setup, but I bet the best F3C guys have the best servos they can get.

Sounds like marketing baloney to me.

I have 2 helicopters set up as FAI

Helicopter 1 - 3 JR DS8311
Helicopter 2 - 3 Align - DS610

They had worked well for me.
