Trex 700e DFC crash
So i was practicing some precision hovering then out of the blue a servo goes out...
The aftermath!
Does anyone know what a good replacement servos would be?

Try looking at the head.. my dfc build failed on me when I was using align servo wheels the links had to much stress on the joints causing them to pop off... make sure servo zero and travel are not making it bind up before flying it again. As for a replacement just get a new gearset for the stock servo it sould be fine. Just remember to check link tension and bind for the high stress of the dfc head. Hope it helps. Good luck!!What does not kill you ****s you up mentally

No I've switched over to outrage servos I'm running Bl9180 cyclic servos and a Bl9188 on tail.
The tail was toasted and I believe the potentiometer in the left cyclic servo was gone to which caused the crash along with the uncontrollable tail.

In Align's Defence I got about 650 flights on those servos many of the flights flown was mild - hard 3d.

That's cool, I know a lot of guys around here have had pretty good luck with Align servos. Sounds like a great upgrade though.
