I picked up a raptor 30 as a second heli to have some fun with. I want to keep it simple. Therefore it will be 4.8volts with standard hs-425bb cyclic and collective servos. But I am not sure what options are out there for affordable tail rotor servos? The gyro will be a JR G500t. I don't want to break the bank on this servo. As my titan 50 is my 3d machine. The 30 will just be for fun.
Thanks

Align DS650 is what I have on my 30, It is reasonable and works well.

Cheap servo
You may laugh but I ran a futaba 3151 on the tail of one of my R30's for quite some time before upgrading to a 9254. Worked just fine for sport flying. Think I bought it used for $15. :-)

beating the air into submission...........cool!

Tell us what type of flying you are doing. This will help us recommend a suitable tail servo.

I ended up buying a align ds620 to try out. I will be doing loops, rolls, flips, etc...

You would have been better off buying the Align DS650 as it is a dedicated tail servo and is roughly the same price as the DS620. However the DS620 should be fine for your flying style.
