OK Guys Please Help!

Which Servos would be the Best choice for the Trex being used for 3D?
(Please note: Price is Secondary to Performance & Accuracy)
(If a Servo is not Listed that would be a better choice, please Post)

A - (3) HS-56's (torque) & (1) HS-50 (speed)
B - Futaba 3108's
C - Futaba 3107's
D - (3) Align KA910001A (torque) & (1) Align KA910010A (speed)
E - Century CS 2003 or CN 2003

Thanks to all who can provide insight.

How about 2 x HS55's 1 x HS56 1 x HS50

Read a little more, you'll find that the Futaba 3108 servos are better than the HS55.

My vote is for hs-56 all the way around! I have 2 Trex and I started with the 55's and a 50 on the tail but I put on a set of 56's to replace the 55's and I could not belive the differance. After that I put one on the tail to try and all I can say is wow. I was a little unshure about it at first because the speed was slower but I would never go back to the 50's or 55's. Just my opinion but it comes from alot of flights with all three servos.

Hey cub2000,

Would you use Futaba 3108s all around? (x4)?

Can you recommend a Futaba RX for the T-REX?

I use 4 on my HII and have just received my second set in preparation for my incoming T-rex. I recommend the s3108's on all 4. They're light, fast, strong, and have less slop than the rest.

I would choose S3107s in place of the S3108s although I haven't tested them yet. They are just a bit heavier than the s3108. The reason is that I stripped the gears on my s3108 (for my TR) and I found out that there are no replacement gears for the S3108. I'm using HS-56HB on aileron, elevator and collective.

I also have a couple of GWS NARO F+HP that I will soon try for my TR. Almost the same size and weight of the HS-56HB but has more torque and a bit faster at 0.1 sec/60deg.

Anybody has any comments on the NARO F+HP?

The Align servos worked great for me.

I bought the whole combo, and it seems the servos are just right.

Has anyone tried the GWS Naro servos?
These seem great!

GWS Naro High Power: 31 oz-in torque!, 0.14 sec, 10g or 0.35oz

GWS Naro Fast High Power: 24 oz-in, 0.1 sec, 10g or 36oz

Only about $15 at Towerhobbies.
http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bi...p?&I=LXHHB3&P=0

I think I will order a set of these, as I just had my 3rd Hitec (1x HS55, 2xHS50) fail on me. This was the last time I will ever buy a Hitec servo! The only reason I originally bought Hitec servos was because everyone was recommending them, but I think this is wrong! I have heard and experienced a lot of problems with these Hitecs. Why use them when a Futaba S3108 is only $20?

S3108:
17 oz-in, 0.12 sec, 7.6g or 0.27oz

http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bi...p?&I=LXFKZ9&P=0

All above mentioned servos have better performance on paper (and in use) than Hitec. Many stories about Hitecs failing ect. Price is about the same, so why use Hitec? I will never again buy one.

Ok, the HS-56 is better than the other Hitecs, but still... Also its $25.

HS-56: 14oz-in, 0.12sec, 10.7g or 0.37oz

I would still buy one of the above mentioned.

To recap:
GWS Naro High Power: 31 oz-in torque!, 0.14 sec, 10g or 0.35oz $20

GWS Naro Fast High Power: 24 oz-in, 0.1 sec, 10g or 36oz $15

Futaba S3108: 17 oz-in, 0.12 sec, 7.6g or 0.27oz $20

Hitec HS-56: 14oz-in, 0.12sec, 10.7g or 0.37oz $25

If you want to go HV (6V) you can use Futaba S3103, as the 3 I recommended can olny use 4.8V

Futaba S3103:
Speed: .11 sec/60 deg @ 4.8V - .09 sec/60 deg @ 6V
Torque: 17 oz/in @ 4.8V - 21 oz/in @ 6V
1.2 kg/cm @ 4.8V - 1.5 kg/cm @ 6V
Weight: 9.5g (.3oz)
$25

I have the GWS Naro servos on my HB CP.

No issues there, but they seem a little weak for the T-Rex that require stronger servos.

Just MO.

Jack, are you using the standard GWS Naros or are you using the HP or FHP?

Yeah, the standard ones have a lot less torque (11oz-in vs. 24 or 31oz-in) than the Fast High Power or the High Power versions. Buy the newer versions.

Those specs seem great also! Thanks for the tip mdttb! This is why I really don't understand why so many people are recommending Hitec servos. Just a few posts and we already found quite a few servos with lot better specs (most likely better performance) than even Hitec's HS-56. Prices are lower also.
