Some what of a simple question. I have a raptor 30 now and it is out fitted with all digital servos and flies great and plan on learnig some light 3d flight with it. With that said I ordered another raptor 30 that I have a jet ranger fuselage for. I only plan on flying it, lets say normal do I need digital servos or would I be okay with say a hitech flight pack? Will I really notice a differance. My pockets are sarting to get light (lol)...Thanks Jason

Many people have learned and / or are flying Helis with non-digital servos. You don't need the holding power of the digitals if you aren't 3Ding. Just make sure that you get dual BB servos. Another thing that can be done is to get the less expensive digital servos, I use the Futaba 3151s (2 for U$66.98 from Tower Hobbies).

I have 3 helis with JR-ds537 and s-537(non-digtal version)servos..Although I do run a 9202 on collective on my 50, I have had no problems with these low end servos, analog or digital. And the plus is, after a usual 4-5 flight day I'm only having to put about 750mAH back into the 2400mAH nicads. I cant really notice any difference in the helis without digitals, even on trim stability,etc...although they seem to use just slightly less juice... I'm no 3d master, but do lots of forward flight, flips, rolls, loops, stall turns, inverted and backwards FF,etc, and I really don't feel the need for anything better on a .30 size...on the .50 its nice to have a bit more torque on the collective though.

Take heed in thy rotor speed, Lest the Earth reach up and smacketh thee!!

I only use digital servos for tail servos.
Do some research on analog servos, they draw less current and for less money you can get stronger/faster analogs.
Another option is to go to a higher voltage receiver pack and regulate it.

Just remember -- if the world didn't suck, we would fall off.

Thanks I think a standard bb servo should do it then, I like the fact of using less juice also. All imput welcome thanks...
