Servo suggestions.
Just getting back into flying again and would like to know what are the best servos for cyclic? This is going on a whiplash v2. Tail servo I’m going with Futaba or a BK servo.

Servos...

Selection depends on your design.

Desirable :

High voltage...
Brushless..
Fast...
Price...
Brand...

IMO, the choices is between Futaba and JR.

Which JR servos are any good. Last time I was flying 8717’s were the rage for a bit until the metal gears developed slop early on.

We see your point.

It is difficult to point to a solution. Its depend on your experience.

This problem is the same when we discuss which is a better transmitter... Futaba, JR, Jeti or spektrum. You probably got fights because of that..!

Same things with servo performance. Its work for you but not for me... Endless discutions.

Bert Kammerer said BK servos.
Tareq alsaadi said MK servos.
Alan Szabo said ALIGN servos.
My friend said SAVOX servos.
You don't like JR servos.

I like ALIGN and Futaba servos because have compatible horn arms...

I never said I don’t like JR servos just that when I was flying 8717’s were the rage. I have BK servos on my helis I’m building right now with expert servos on the tail and throttle. OMG servos on my Monstro that is still not fully set up. Just wanted a consensus what people were using now-a-days since I know 8717’s are no longer probably being produced.

I'd recommend you take a look at Xpert servos. The quick release connector is very convenient.

It's a great time to be shopping for servos. There are a lot of really good servos available these days.

I drift towards MKS X8s or, as Ace Dude suggested, Xpert R1s. Both are in the $180 range. I consider that pricy but "in-the-ballpark" for premium servos.

I don't have an opinion of Futaba's H700 servo. I don't own any. There is a very good chance they are fine servos -if not the best available- but at $260 (each) and no clear explanation for their premium price, I've "settled" for MKSs and Xperts.

One more to consider... Recently I've bought a few sets of KST BL915 V2 servos and have liked them. It will take someone with an oscilloscope to explain to me why these servos are 1/2 to 1/3 the price of other top end servos and at that point, does it matter? A set of 3 of them is less than a single Futaba (they're about $85) and that opens up the possibility of building and flying more models.

Anyway, there are dozens of servos available that are far more than adequate to fly a model helicopter. Lucky us.

That is correct.

... And Remember, don't pay more than you really need to fly your rc helicopter.

Be careful about "the fashion choice"... It is not always a "good "companion".

Especially with Black Friday right around the corner. Last year Xpert had some amazing Black Friday deals. They also have a variety of different sizes and price points available. I'm using their SI series in my Logo 550 and I'm very happy with them.

All the models and specs can be found on their website:
