Just got a 50v2 (Heliproz VelociRaptorpackage) to replace my Raptor 30v1. My flying to-date has been basic aerobatics - I hope the 50v2 will permit me to try mild 3D. What do you suggest for servos? Am thinking about Futaba 9202s or Hitec 545.

I currently use JR811's all the way, so far no problems. If I had it to do all over again I believe I would go with Futaba 9253 tr, Futaba 9202 for collective and cyclics, Jr810 throttle.

Oh one other thing, I would stay away from Hitec. But then again, that is just my opinion......

9202s are the perfect servo for a 50, lots of torque. i would go with them.

Hitec servos are as good or better than any others. I use Hitec 5925 digital servos on all my helis without any problems or failures. I also use Hitec on 1/4 & 1/3 scale planks like Laser 200 and Extra 300, Lanier Giant Stinger, and they work like a charm.

hitec 605bb never failed with me. lots of torque, fast speed, they dont drain much power, and they are cheap. less the 30 bucks a piece. i have them in my 50 and are great. have in all my airplanes too. one more thing, metal geared servos after time get alot or play so stay away from them.

This is true, I replace the gearsets in my 5925 servos when there is detectable slop, as they are metal. The Hitec 5975 servos with the Karbonite gears are the ones to use. The gears are practically unbreakable, and they don't wear.

I started out with the JR 517's left over from my shuttle, along with a 642 radio, but since I was onto the 50, I wanted to get a better radio and servos, so I bought the 8103 with DS811 combo. Awesome radio, and the servos made a HUGE difference in the way the heli flew. They aren't much faster, but they seem to respond quicker from the little bit of extra torque, and the heli feels more "locked-on" and seems to be more accurate because of the digitals. I have a 401/9253 on the tail also.

This year I switched from Hitec 605's to JR 8231's in my R50. I did it because the 605's weren't returning to center well and were giving me headaches when setting up my heli because of it. The 8231's are listed as .22sec / 88 oz in. I think the 605's were .16 sec. I don't really notice the difference in speed, but do notice the heli reponds to my stick inputs very precisely. I absolutely love these servos! Also, I haven't noticed a significant loss in battery run times.

If you want to go for a good cheaper Hitec servo, you might want to try the new HS-5475HB it's a digital servo, has the heavy duty Karbonite gear train, dual Ball Bearing, about the same speed and torque as the HS-545BB and it's only a few dollars more.

Cheers, Hayden.

I fly all 60's

But if I were you I would go with a good setup that if later you decide to go with a 60 size you can use the same setup. For that reason I would go with:

Cyclics-Futaba 9252
Tail-9253
Collective S9206 or S9350 or Airtronics 94758Z
Throttle Hitec 525BB

That would be a nice setup, and servo gearsets will last!!!

9252 will give a very significant improvement in "feel" over the 9202. I have all 9202's in my helis and can only wish I had the 9252's. Just set up a buddy's R30V2 with 9252's and was really amazed at how much difference it made.

NO, but it would make the rappy feel more responsive and maybe you would like it better.. I know I do!
