Spartan Quark info

I'm looking at a Spartan Quark gyro. Notice they come in either plastic or metal cases. Any operating difference in them or advantage of metal over plastic case ?

Recommended servo for a 450 or 500 ?

thanks

Not sure if the metal case really has any advantage. The Quark is a great gyro, some would say the best one ever made.

there is no difference in performance between them.
The metal one might hold up better in a (hard) crash.
But since the Spartan quark is so tiny it barely will get crushed anyway.

Servo... try to go not to cheap on the tail servo - it will haunt you!

Great gyro. Never had a problem with it. Setup is a breeze. Used the DS520 on my 450...worked flawlessly. Switched to a DS525 after messing up the 520 in a crash...still works flawlessly!

Thanks for the replies.
I got a Datapod on the cheap already.
I'll probably go with the metal Quark's just for looks.
