I doubt if you would see much difference with the digi, despite people claiming they have greater holding power. give it a try if you want, but imo the 85mg is perfect. it's a very robust servo.

As with any digital you need to take axtra care with set up to prevent binding/stalling but I've found then to be 100% reliable.

Sounds like it's worth a try!

Hey buddy, absolutely the same here! I've got a lot of academic work over the next month but once all my exams are finished in mid Janurary (was going to buy two months ago but didn't have the time to build it to my proper standards so I'll wait to mid Jan. ). I'm buying one of these with the absolute best equipment: Kontronik ESC, Western Robotics BEC, Hacker A30-14L motor , Thunder Power 2250 4S 65C... and... Yes, four MKS DS95s . Whilst it will bring this plane to a near 700 (about $1100), I really want to kit this plane out super nice I'm just thinking whether it should be all DS95s or whether I should put an HS5085MG in the elevator. I remember SpaceBat giving a helpful reply on this saying it should be the 5085MG due to the moment and torque is a bit low on the DS95s on the elevator but they're considerably more powerful and faster than the 65MGs so it might be okay I don't know, I'll just have to wait and see I think though they will make the plane absolutely incredible! twice the speed, twice the torque, and more precise than the 65MGs should just be incredible! What do you think about the elevator?

Thanks

I've had the 85 in two different EXP elevators with over 600 flights... That in itself tells you they are up for the task. Should probably send em in for service, but I figure why when they run just as good as new. They are still tight.

I put my new Motrolfly DM-3615 750kv in my Laser today, figured it should have some nice punch with a Xoar 14x7. The main concern was ending up nose heavy, the 3615 (lightweight) with cross mount and prop driver comes in at 190g whereas the DM-2820 it replaced weighs 172g. I moved the ESC back into the fuselage to offset the added weight and that seams to have done the trick.

I put 5 batteries through it and it didn't disappoint, incredible punch out of the hover and the big prop really helps with post stall control. All in all a recommended motor option providing you aren't using a battery any heavier than about 260g, if you do you might end up a bit nose heavy.

I've been wanting to try Savox. Guess I'm going to have to start a new project.

No, at 0.13s they aren't super fast but they are just as fast as the HS-65MG and significantly faster than the pedestrian HS-85MG (0.16s).
If you want super fast the SH-0257 is the one, and it still has a lot more torque that the HS-65MG and much faster (0.09s vs 0.13s)
