Looking for a new better, stronger, quicker replacement than the 5245.
The Savox are working good in the 48 Edge, only 9-10 flights so far though.
Great save!

High voltage:

Hitec 7245 - fast, bulleproof, strong.
Futaba S9070 - so far they have been bulletproof, insane power (probably a bit more than the 7245), slightly better centering/resolution than the 7245.
JR 3711 - I haven't run them but they look really nice. My friend reports the same type of performance as the S9070's...great power and centering but not quite as quick as the Hitecs. I think I will try them in the 60" Laser.


Airtronics 94820: bulletproof, plenty of power, great centering and resolution, slow.
