Help on servo decision
Hi everyone, I have a Gaui nx7 I’m in need of servos for. Price somewhat matters but I don’t know what a good torque and speed range is good these days. I am relatively hard on the sticks and love to “snap” the cyclic quickly so I need something that will hold up pretty well. I will also be using a regulator for individual channels set on hv.
Price matters some:
Speed:
Torque:
Brand:
Thanks in advance.

I would go with either BK servos or Xpert. There are a couple of choices with each.

Personally I buy a lot of XPert R1/R2 or MKS X8 servos. When price really matters, I drift towards ProModelers. Often their coreless servo meets my price and performance needs. Below are a few links for further reading.

These are just a few to consider. There are so many good choices these days.

For me, the current champ servo for its price to performance specs is the MKS X5 HBL550. $99 before sales specials gets over 500oz in torque @.08s powered by 8.4 volts, pretty crazy for the price. Servos with those specs start at $45+ more a piece. I haven't tried it yet, but I've had good luck with MKS in the past.

Of course, you can't go wrong with a Xpert KD1, R2 or MKS X6 HBL599(torque monster) for top of the line amazing servos.
Thee Xpert servos are cool because they have removable servo wires with different lengths included which is a unique feature.

Thanks Rappy. I saw the hbl550 servos and was very impressed with them. So far they may have my money unless something else pops up. The kd1 servos are a hoot and still deciding on those as wellHeliDirect Field Rep, Synergy N7 w/ OS 105, Torq Servos, Cyclone/ Rail blades

You may want to consider futaba S3071 for the cyclic/collective/throttle and a BLS274 for the tail.

The 3071's are about $44 a piece while the BLS274 is $150.00

The Futaba 3071s specs are lacking for me, .19 second Transit time is very very slow. And that's unloaded transit time to boot. I was flying servos faster than that 20 years ago and could feel a difference even as a newbie on flybar models.

Nowadays for flybarless helis, servo speed is crucial for stability and that locked in feeling by being able to react quickly and accurately to inputs by the flybarless system.

I agree that servos these days need to be about .08 or faster for best performance. I’m still deciding since I like a lot of torq with good speed. That’s hard to find a little bit.HeliDirect Field Rep, Synergy N7 w/ OS 105, Torq Servos, Cyclone/ Rail blades
