Okay I am a newbie with a used heli to start off.

I have Align ds410m cyclics and a Align ds420m for the rudder, today I noticed slop in two of the cyclic and the rudder has slop in them. From what I understand slop lessons your helis performance. Should I put a new set of gears in these or just save up for new servos. And which servos? Rebuilding them seems to be the best option price wise and I don't want to go with a slower servo as I am learning with no expo in my controller and enjoying the quick stick responce with minimal movement. What do you all think is my best option?

Replace them with a servo that doesn't have stamped gears. You want machined gears. Hitec HS5065MGs with a JR DS290G are both suitable replacements.

If they're just sloppy, fly the snot out of them till they twitch. Shouldn't be long now.

DS410m gear set = $9
JR DS290G = $35
Hitec HS5065MGs = $41

Getting a free set of servos because Heli-on is buying = Priceless!

LOL - if they're on me you're getting HKT900's - all around.

Don't forget about the $80 (or so) collateral damage caused by crashing when your Align POS servos fail in flight.

LMAO Dood!

I have jr285's on my clone but they just seem so slow compared to the align 410's. The .08 speed just seems to suit me as that has been the heli I have been practicing with. And when I fly the clone it seems slow to respond.

Dood! I have a sponsor. Might not be the best parts but they are paid for! Heli-on order about 30 of everything I will no longer be afraid of crashing!

On another note, I never thought servo speed would have been something I would notice as a newbie, keeping a solid hover is so much easier with faster servos.

At this point in my learning I don't think about hovering, I look at the heli and my hands do the work. It is only when I am not tail in that I have to somewhat think about it.
