To answer your question, It all depends on your flying. The weight of your plane and your flying style. I fly hard and I've striped gears more often than not. My advice is if you spend a lot on your plane, then don't put cheep servos in it.
There are four different gear materials in our Hitec line of servos. Nylon is the base and is great for standard applications and offers excellent wear resistance to keep the gear mesh tight for years. Karbonite is 4 times stronger than Nylon and offers even better wear resistance and super quiet operation. Standard Metal is perfect for rugged applications and is 16 times stronger than Nylon but will wear much faster. Our Titanium gears are simply awesome. Virtually no wear after years of use and 48 times stronger than Nylon gears. If your application is critical and you can not afford a gear failure, Titanium is the way to go
