However, just for the hell of it, on my 60" Laser I just might try some of those gold plated servos
Have you ever seen the servos operate next to each other? The 7245s make the 5245s look very doggy. The 7245s are faster, stronger and more precise. My 60" edge's roll rates are way faster then my flying partners at WOT... And I don't think it's because mine is RWB and he has the BY. I assume he is getting some blowback at WOT.... But they work fine for him. For me I wouldn't settle for anything other then HV in a 60" EXP.
Edit: there not just cold plated
