I am using the Futaba 9257 with my Spartan and have great results with it. I only changed to things on the build. I installed the metal bearing blocks for the main shaft and I installed the Microheli gyro mount. This was only done as my personal preferance. One thing to watch on the build is installing the balls in the plastic mixing arms. I had one sit the plastic. Other then that enjoy the build and flying it. Chuck

Over a year and a half on my 770/9257 combo, very happy with it.There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."

401/9257 holds great, even in fast and long tail slides.

I guess I'll be the first non-Futaba poster.lol...

I use an Align DS520 and it works great.
It's paired with an Align GP750 BTW
I literally never use the word literally right.

Guys I have looked into this servo and every shop I found it says its for the trex 450. So therefore is it not to small for the 500? I don't know that's why I ask before I buy it as that's the last thing a need bar a battery to finish it off

Futaba s9257 is a perfect fit! Ask me how I know.
I just built a 500 last week with s9257 for the tail coupled with a Spartan.

Been using the 9257 in my 500 for over a year. No problems and it works great with my Spartan. Most of the guys in the club with 500's use the 9257. No problems anywhere. Chuck

9257 works great on the 500, i have had one on there paired with a 401 for a while. You could go to a fullsize gyro servo but honestly the trex is tailheavy with a 6S 2200/2500 already so i would do whatever you can to keep tail weight to a minimum. If your running 6S 3000 you may be okay with a fullsize. honestly though the 9257 is a great servo. I'm putting on on my logo 400 as well.***Logo 600 vbar***Henseleit TDR vbar***

I don't remember doing any mods for the 9257. Of course I can't remember what I had for breakfast. Chuck

The T-rex 500 was designed for Futaba servos. The 9257 will fit perfect. I have both here 9257 and 3500g, the 3500g is smaller but will still work. But if its just fitment your looking for and not performance go with the Futaba.

The 9257 is a great servo, every bit as good if not better than the 3500. How many above are telling you how well the 9257 works and you're questioning it because of one post?There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."

The JR 3500G is a better servo and can be ran on regulated 6V without any issues for many, many flights.
