I've been a Futaba servo guy since I started this stuff.

Back in '04 I flew the S9451/9256 combo

then that became brushless BLS451/BLS251

that begat (closely)HV BLS255HV/BLS256HV which is what I have on my Logo 700 that I built last year. But, now I see those are discontinued.

So, where are we at now? There are several BLS/HV options out now...what is the newest version of the old (heli) standard?

I'm flying Vcontrol/Neo if that matters. I don't even know what all the sbus stuff is about, or if I need it or if I can use it if I got it.

if it ain't broke, break it.

after comparing specs, I believe the following model numbers have been applied to current model servos with the same spec:

BLS255HV is now BLS272SV

BLS256HV is now BLS274SV

I'd fire their branding guy if it were up to me.

if it ain't broke, break it.

I believe they would be the Futaba BLS272SV SBUS2 HV for the cyclics and the BLS274SV SBUS2 HV for the tail....

Tower Hobbies has them in stock, they claim.

Here's the link:

Hope this helps...

Btw, Sbus is used as an option with Futaba systems. You will not be using that option with Vcontrol.

BLS175SV looks good too.

60% of the time, it works every time!

Not entirely correct. Bls 274sv is NOT the super narrow center frequency, however the bls276sv is (think s9254 vs s9256)
