What full sized servo would everyone recommend for my Trex 500? I am currently running a futaba 611 gyro with a futaba 9257 servo.

Just wondering why you would want a full size servo? Do you need more weight? Why not run a small lightweight servo thats fast?

Why not fit the 9256? I'm running a full size hitec but its not a very good servo, will be changing it for a 9254 (with Spartan gyro)

The BLS251 is the best servo if you can afford it or have one lying around. I have 6 but couldn't justify fitting one to the Rex 500 when I have some 9254s lying around.

Hello

Since the "standard sized" 9256 was designed to be used in conjunction with Futaba's 611 gyro, why not use the 9256 (unless you decided to upgrade to the BLS251)?

Good luck with your decision.

Just wondering how you're managing to do that, unless you went into the hidden menu?

Seems like the 9256 would be the logical choice for you. I have a Spartan/9254 combo, very happy with the perfomance.

I think the 9254 would be a good choice as it is the lightest I think. I have an 8900G on mine and its awesome but on the heavy side, not that you can tell.

60% of the time, it works every time!

wow 9257 with a 611 did you ever go into the favctory menu and change the speed output of the gyro ? if you didnt you probally killed the current servo. the 611 is a output of 760u and that resolution will kill normal servos by working them to fast and burning them up. i would go to the 9256 or 251 which were designed for the 611 and if you are using a heavy lipo for you 500 then a full size will help balance it up i run a jr 770/8900 on mine. all you need is a trex600 servo holder and the boom straps from you 500 kit get the fiber glass mount for the 600 is like 5$ cheaper just need to file down the mount where the screw point is, quick and simple
