I think the 285mg's are going to be your best option.

Look at these:

Airtronics 94809's Check the specs and compare.

Weight: 0.38 oz (10.8 g)
Dimensions: 0.93" (23.5 mm) x 0.45" (11.5 mm) x 0.83" (21 mm)
Torque
@ 4.8v: 35 in/oz (2.5 cm/Kg)
@ 6.0v: 39 in/oz (2.8 cm/Kg)
Speed/60 degrees
@ 4.8v: 0.12 sec
@ 6.0v: 0.10 sec

The transit time are from stop to stop not a flying start like they used to do. These servos will fit the Rave. I have a set in a Mini Titan and can definitely tell the difference over a set of 287MG's that I used previously You can feel the centering precision and repeatability. If you are going to fly flybarless you will need the extra power because the feedback forces go directly from the rotor head right to the cyclic servos. Flybarless servos need to be at least twice the torque of a standard flybar servo just to survive the feedback forces.

Airtronics servos fit nicely and fly nicely, too

Enjoy things that money can buy IF you don't lose the things money can't buy.

Own and love 285mg's. They work great and Nick Maxwell does not seem to have any problems with his just watch his rave FBL video at efest if you need any proof. Plus JR's warranty and service is hard to beat.

Not really., there are other equal service centers, which incidentally, won't be bogged down by recall traffic.

285's aren't bad, but there are newer and arguably better options now. When the Rave was designed by a JR pilot, they were the best option, no doubt. That is why the Rave was built around the 285's.

I HAD 285's in my rave for a reason.

Progression is a good thing.

Wow, I never even considered Airtronics servos.

Thanks for the recommendations everyone!

I think I'm going with the airtronics. They seem to be the fastest, and have the most torque with Ball bearing support at a good price!

The last time I was checking out Airtronic servos, was when Alan was using them in his Raptors back in the day.

Thanks for the eye opener, almost forgot about airtronics.

Cheers,
Raven

Have you ever bought new tires for your car and didn't realize how bad your old tires were until you drove the new tires for the first time?

Have you bought new windows for your house and didn't realize how bad your 50 year old windows were until the coldest day of the winter didn't even phase you inside your NOW warm and draft free home?

Have you ever reformatted your computer only to realize how slow and buggy it was?

Have you put in a fresh pair of contacts to realize how unclear your vision was and how irritated yours eyes had become with your old contacts?

Remember when you upgraded to a big flat screen tv with HD and/or Blueray?

Well, I think you know where these comments are leading!

Yep, progression is a great thing!

How about the tail servo?

I was having so many minor issues with my trex that wifey offered to by me the heli of my choice and a few add ons.

Funny part is its working now! SHHHH lol
But the catch is i have to sell it. there is a pic in my gallery.

I chose the rave.
? is i have 285's and a 3400 for the tail, will these be good enough for now?
also i have a 9chp futaba radio, the receiver is way bigger than my old jr 6202.

Because of size i was thinking of going back to the jr.

Well you guys seem to know your stuff so i'm just looking for some insight from some people who obviously know a thing or two about these heli's.

285 MG's are a good servo and the 3400/3500G's are top notch tail servos..

I noticed how well they center and they seem so much faster. I wouldnt run anything else. Also Hobby People sell them and if you have a problem the manager said to come and see him and he would just swap them out. Talk about service.

For those who wants to buy them from Readyheli, you have to file a request for them. I just did, but the reply was to few requests at the moment. So they wont take them in.
