Brushless servos Futaba , MKS or ?
Wanting to buy some brushless servos for my Whiplash Gasser. Anyone have any experience comparing the Futaba to the MKS? I know Futaba BLS servos are great servos but would like to know if my money would be better spent on another brand? I have read good things about MKS but how do they hold up over time? Any feedback would be great. Thanks

Been very pleased with my Futaba BLS255HVs, BLS256HV's, BLS451's, and BLS 251s.

All have performed very well, definitely recommended.

Very efficient in terms of power consumption, very easy to find gears/cases for in the event of crashes ($12 for 5 sets of BLS251/256HV gears!), and dead nuts reliable.

I've been very pleased with my Futaba bls272hv and bls256hv servos that I run in my Whiplash Gas. I know that I can count on servos I get from Futaba to be fast, precise, and durable, which is probably my number 1 concern on a gas heli. My only experience with MKS was having a 3 flight old brushless tail servo die on the 4th flight of a brand new heli a few years back. Never again. I'd buy Align servos before I ran MKS. The Aligns have always been great for me, but when it really counts, Futaba or JR.Nick Crego

Where do you get the bls256hv servo gears from for 5sets for $12? I can't even find any gears when I stripped mine. Had to call futaba themselves.HeliDirect Field Rep, Synergy N7 w/ OS 105, Torq Servos, Cyclone/ Rail blades

In my Whiplash gassers I have one with BLS451 and one with Outrage (made by MKS). Both have been good so far (100's of flights on each set). I tried Align DS610's in gassers and they did not hold up, 2 died.Tom

Servos?
Thanks guys,

I think I am going to go with a set of 272HV's on the cyclic for sure. Not sure what tail servo to choose(any opinions there?). Futaba servos have always worked great for me so your answers were no surprise. Only thing with Futaba is there are so many to choose from it can be hard to decide what to buy. Once again it looks like it is going to be Futaba. Appreciate your feedback.

You'll be looking for 272SV's which replaced the HV's.
I will unequivocally guarantee you'll be pleased with a BLS256HV on the tail rotor.

BLS272HV
The BLS272 HV and SV have identical specs except the SBus 2.
Is there any other difference? I do not fly Futaba radios so why pay $50 per servo more for a feature I have no use for. There are a few places that still have the 272 HV available.

The SV's are only a little more expensive comparing dollar to dollar. If you see the HV's for $50 less, then they are under heavy discount to clear the stock out.

Servo choice
The MKS servos hold up very well over time. There are no plastic/nylon gears in the whole drive train which means no slop develops over time. I don't know much about the new Futaba servos but I haven't heard anything bad. Check out the specs at http://www.mksservosusa.com and compare the two.

MKS are good servos and why I switched from Futaba. Futaba simply didn't have the servos to compete with the speed and torque at the time in an HV package. Now they do and have come out with some awesome servos, but I'm stuck on MKS now and they are great performers. Everyone can have a bad servo from anyone, but doesn't mean the whole brand is junk.Randy!!! I am the liquor
