What is your price range? Do you have a budget?

Hitec HS-65mg's were always my choice on my T-Rex 450's.
Even the HS-65hb's (non-metal gear (karbonite)) were a good choice and reliable.

All my 450s have MKS servos. Either HV93 or DS95. They have been perfectly reliable but they aren't the cheapest. I can highly recommend them based on my experience- but I should add, I haven't tried a lot of other brand micro servos. There is a strong possibility there are other servos out there that are just as desirable. I just haven't tried 'em yet.

Well. We're at about opposite ends of the servo spectrum. I recommended $80 servos and you ask about $5.00 servos!

The only fully truthful answer I can give you is "I don't know." I've never used the servos you've asked about. Maybe someone else will be able to add more valuable input.

With the above said, the MG90s you asked about don't meet my minimum standards. I couldn't live with the super plastic case and low torque. Servos don't have to be expensive to be good but at 5 bucks I wonder if these are good enough.

Possibly you could learn something from the reviews below.?.? I personally am immediately put on guard when the item description says the motor is "burshless". It makes me question every other specification they put out for this servo.

Hopefully someone will be able to offer some first hand experience.

If you are thinking of going FBL at some point then you will need digital servos which rules out the Hitec HS65MG's despite them being very good servos for the price.

My recommendation would be the Savox SH-0257MG Micro Digital Servo or the Align DS450.

60% of the time, it works every time!
