Any servo will work. Recommend a fast digital servo. I have a 401 on my Fury 55 and have a Spectrum H6080G on it http://spektrumrc.com/Products/Defa...odID=SPMSH6080G I also have one on my Raptor 30 with a Futaba GY520 Gyro and they do really well.

The Align DS650 is good as well http://www.servodatabase.com/servo/align/ds650 I have a DS650 on my T-Rex 550 and Vibe 50. Both of these are servos that I as well as a lot of guys around here use on the tail. Futaba and JR have equivalent good servos as well.

If you try to use a slow servo you will notice it will get hot and can possibly fail on you. The tail servo has the biggest demand because it is always moving though you won't always notice it.

Ehhh....not quite.

There's several tail servos on the market that will not work and could be potentially damaged by plugging them up to a 401

Any servo labeled as "Short Pulse" "760us center pulse" or "601/611 compatable" will NOT work with a 401. 9251, 9256, and BLS 251 come to mind immediately but there's a couple others.

Any standard pulse servo, or 1520us center (same thing) will work.

The 9254 or 9253 are the defacto standards for the 401 but it depends on the application.

50 sized heli, sport flying. Put an S9254 on the tail, turn the DS switch ON, set the DELAY to zero, set the mechanical linkage and TRAVEL LIMIT properly, go fly and have a ball.

Though the 401 isn't a killer gyro by today's standards, it was THE gyro to have a few years back.

A blast from the past, edited from its original content, and still useful:
