Can anyone recommend a decent choice for a replacement to the E-Sky servos for pit/ail/elev ?

I use a comp TX so direction is not important.

Many Thanks

Im still flying E-Flite s75's stolen from the blade cp pro. I have been lucky with them they are just as bad if not worse than esky. these little things dont survive a crash but they will last a long time under normal use. I was thinking about an upgrade to the 55's but are they any better than the rest of the cheap servos? Im gonna wait a while as the 65's are getting cheaper. I am getting four 65's for another heli. Going to a big indoor sales and flying event saturday with wallet in hand.

Your credit card will be a better choice....... The 55's aren't a whole lot better than the stock servos you have now...

I run the 65s on my rex's with no problems at all they are strong and center everytime... Same size as the 75s I think...
Here is a better price on them too... http://www.centralhobbies.com/radio...ec/hitec00.html

Thanks,

Seems as though the 65s are a good choice, what is the advantage/disadvantage of metal over carbonite gears?

Carbonite gears will survive a crash pretty well, The metal gears are almost indestructable in a crash...

any of the micro futaba servos will work with the stock tx. 3113 or 3114 are good choices.

the tower pro sg90 will also work.
