Hi Guys,

I would like to know what Futaba servos can be used on a 450 size heli , more specific a TRex 450 pro.

Thanks

s3156 were supposed to be the shizz. digital equivalent of the HS-5065.

specs are similar. but, if you read thru some old posts you'll see complaints of poor centering.

also, it only comes with flimsy, thin servo arms. there is a set of 4 heavy-duty servo arms for it. but, kinda silly to have to pay another $7 for arms on top of a $40 servo.

i only know all of this because i'm currently putting together a FBL furion 450 with them (i had the 3156s on the shelf already). i'll know in a week how they actually work, or if i need to go get the HS5065s.

if it ain't broke, break it.

I have no issues with centering with mine, and they do come with a heavy duty double ended servo horn now.
Ive used them in a Trex 450 Pro, MA Furion 450, and now the new Hirobo Embla FBL 450.

For the love of the hobby
