Shop around. You're looking at the wrong servos if they're $100 each.

The old e-flite ones? NO. The new Spekz? IDK.
I use Spektrum H3020's and they work great.
At least a Zillion to choose from. Good Luck.

The digital servos that come with the Blade 450 are about $25 each. Gear sets are around $6 - $8 depending upon where you shop. If it is just a gear issue, by all means redo the gears. If the are twitchy or jittery, I'd replace the servos.

I had a blade back in the day, the 400. Not much of an electronics package on the out of box RTF. At those prices, I'd ditch the eflite servos and go with little hitech or futaba servos.
