not sure I like futaba 9650
Got the 9650 on the SE, not sure I like it. It's so bulky and heavy at 26g. It does work well, but I've been reading that the hs-56's and 65's work just as well with the 401 gyro. Everyone seems to swear by this combo. Not sure it was worth the money. Anyone like the hs-56's or 65's better? It sure would take a big chunk of weight off the heli.

I just upgraded my tail servo to a 9650 as well. I had a HS56 before and now I'm not used to how fast the digital servo is. I was surprised by how large the servo is.....I had some issues with the HS56, I needed to have delay on the 401 gyro up all the way to hold well....

Some folks like the Trex to fly a little tail heavy. Personal preference I guess.

I use an HS56 and am pretty happy with it. When you (unless you already are) get into maneuvers that really tax the tail (funnels, fast tail slides, etc.) you will need every ounce of performance out of the tail. For learning to fly and most aerobatics, any quality, decently fast servo will work.

Isn't the 94761Z about the same dimensions and weight as the 9650, if so, that wont help him.

I use the 9650, and it holds the tail GREAT, but I can't get my CG quite right because of it. I would like a smaller servo, but I am reluctant to sacrifice the performance of the 9650. Hopefully servo technology keeps advancing rapidly and we start to see some really high speed micro stuff coming out soon.

I guess it is all personal preference. You kind of have to sacrifice the weight for the speed and performance of the 9650.Rob

Check the HDS-577

It is faster, stronger, smaller and cheaper than the 9650.

I have it on my SE and it rocks!

That looks like it would be a good servo. How is the availability of that servo and gearsets in the US. I haven't seen it before.

Unfortunately all orders need to be done to the UK, as far as I know. I got mine that way.It's easy to find an excuse to do wrong. Hard is not to find an excuse to do right.

The 9650 is fairly heavy. I used hs 55's on the tail of my V1 450 trex with good results. Thats all I Was using up untill I tried a 9650 when I bought my SE. Still no complaints. Both servos worked great for me.
The video done in the backyard on my website with the CDE trex used an HS 55 on the tail, believe it or not. http://www.holmesrc.com/files/Caseys_crazy_Trex.wmv
(gain was running a bit high)
A speedy servo is what you are going for when looking for tail servos. Doesn't matter if it's digital or not.
Now days I prefer the 9650 more for it's durability, and it's nice for 3D.

fwiw..

94761 is smaller and lighter than 9650, a tad faster on 6v. I can't run quite as high a gain on it as 9650, but it balances better and holds fine....

try the HDS877...digital servo...cheap, fast and powerful
I used to run an HDS877 on my trex and it was awesome...modefo's sells the servo for under 30$...gear sets are only 8$...but you'll probably never need them..I crashed about 30 times and never stripped the gears since they are metal..if you need gears Allerc.com sells the gearsets for them...I had great luck with this servo doing funnels, piro flips, fast backwards etc...

I had a cheapy hongkong servo in my tail with the better of the 2 align gyro , tail was perfect but there was a lot of slop in the gears , so I thought what the hell and bought the 9650.
Was very dissapointed , theres now more weight on the tail and theres no difference in tail performance.
Spending more money does not always help , just to say the tail is spot on but not better lol

Just was looking at the HDS servo. With the 401, that may be the new way to go...small, fast and lightweight!Rob
