There are a few choices.
Myself and my friends all went with the Hitech 65MG's which stand for metal geared so when you crash they don't get damaged. I had the HB's which are plastic geared and at $3.00+ a pop and usually all 3 servos stripped so $15 more per crash for gear sets not to mention the pain in the rear of having to rip out the servos replace the gears and reinstall them in the heli each time screw that!! Got rid of those and went with metal geared ones. About $35 for each one and only 1 time purchase and sometimes for a good price for all 3 on here. Can run on 6V too. Also they now have a newer version that are digital now but cost a little more.

I know JR has a digital set of servos with the JR3500 digital tail servo as a set but don't know much about them.

Oh No Someone Please Stop Me Before I Go Broke With This Heli Thing!!

I second the 65mg. I'm using the 65hb and haven't stripped gears in 8 crashes. Looks like mine will last 8 crashes, since I just jinxed it.

I run the hs65hb's in my pro at 6v and really like them. When they strip it will be a pain in the arse though. I didn't know about the digital ones though.

5065 pretty pricey, can't seem to talk myself out of wanting them though.

Hb65mg's work great and are tough and the standard as far as I am concerned. I have a set of 5065's that I up graded to and rely can't tell the difference. Off topic, I just put a set of H6064's on my 600 and they are unbelievable, (10.4 POUNDS of torque, .08sec). It is a whole different heli now.
