Hey all, I've been out of helis for a few years while my sons got past the toddler stages. I took out the TRex 250SE for a quick flight the other day and the tail servo failed in flight. Luckily, I auto'd it back down with no damage but I need a replacement.

Looks like the DS420 isn't made anymore so what would be a comparable replacement for it? TIA

I'm thinking something like the Align DS455M ;

You may find a few others that are lower in cost.

I was running a JR DS3500G Mini on mine (Flybarred) ;

With a fbl controller set-up you should have no problems with the smaller Align servo.

Ya I had a lot of those old 410 and 420's go bad. There are a lot of better servos now. Just about any you pick will be a step up.
Good Luck
