I money were no object
I certainly would not be flying RC aircraft. I would be one of Bell Helicopter's largest clients and Cessna's president would be on speed dial, as well as Hawker, and Gulfstream.

I would partition my budget for some historical plane restoration, and I would put in an apartment in my hanger next to a big tank of jet A and another of 100LL.

Start thinking bigger!

Except, according to the Mrs, (to paraphrase Groucho), I should never be a passenger in a heli that I was the pilot of.

1.Protek
2.Futaba
3.Align

I put Protek at #1 because they are the most impressive servo yet. Smooth, powerful, fast. Having said that, I haven't had enough of them or long enough to say anything about reliability though. So far 100% but that doesn't mean much yet. BTW, you want to be sure your bird is quite sound both mechanically as well as electrically if you're going to use these so not going to be the best for all.

Futaba has been tried and true for me for many years.

I put Align for overall value, availability, serviceability.

I have four Proteks in my 550 - beat the crap out of them and they are great. And....they do not chatter or hum.

you do know they are made by Savox, do you?

Then why not buy them straight from the manufacturer?

I agree Savox is a good value, but we are talking best, regarless of cost.

I am also impressed by Protecs, but they are still long term unknown.

Most of the Align servos I've bought came with the helis...almost free if you think about it. I've got lots of 'em. Thus the comment on availability.

The problem of which servo is "best" is wrought with interpretation.

Best meaning fastest?
best meaning most reliable long term even if slower or consumes more power?
Best meaning most torque?
Best meaning value for the $$?
Best meaning endorsed by most pro pilots?
Best meaning most versatile in voltage range? ....
Get my point? that is why BobOD can say Align is the "best," as he is referring to 'best value.'

Actually Scott, the thread is not which is best, it's what would you get if cash wasn't a factor. On second thought, it'd be more like this.

1. Spektrum
2. Align (Rebranded Savox)
3. Protek

If cash wasn't a factor, the first thing I would do would be to buy an Align Trex 100, 250, 450, 500, 550 600e, 600N, 700e, 700N, and (2) 800e's. (That would be COOL! )

Then I would rip out all the Align (Savox) servos and put in Protek servos.

Then I would buy a couple hundred Blade 130X helis to give to people when they come to visit me (thus Spektrum goes to the top).

Then I would convert one of the 800's to Nitro.

I don't think I'd ever have time to buy another Futaba.

however if if you are looking for the most expensive servos, then the Futaba BLS273SV S.Bus2;

At $250 a piece, I am not sure many will get the chance to own them, and if one has an Align 600Pro, one would not need more than an Align DS servo to reach the maximum performance ceiling of a 600Pro.
