Tail servo for <$20 from US

Where can I get a decent tail servo <$20 from here in the US?

Thinking about giving one of these a shot.

Link,

Emax had a promotion here many months ago, and were giving them away to the first 20 or so applicants. As it turned out the Emax servos are pretty darn good.

Of the two, I'd get the following, it's a clone of the Futaba 9257 and has all the torque you'll need and is a very fast servo. I don't know what heli you're going to put it on, but you may need a mounting bracket for it if you don't already have one.

Hard to beat for the price, also Valuehobby is a good vendor, I've ordered from them before with no problems.

Sorry, forgot to mention it's going on a 450. Yeah, I've ordered from them before with no issues. Just wasn't able to find any reviews on this servo. Think I'll give it a shot.

Thanks,

does that servo work with gyros in digital servo mode?

edit:

I was able to find this answer. it supports 275 hz operation.

I found the promotion. It's a mixture of reviews of the servo and other things too. Kinda like anythread.. Start at about page 11.

Thanks for the responses. I ordered it yesterday, and it shipped out today. Seems to be a fairly decent tail servo for the money from the reviews.

I just ordered one too, specs are really good for the price. Going to try it on my plastic version 450

Also ordered a 40 amp ESC from value hobby too, had them on sale for $23, can't go wrong!

Could someone gimme a quick lesson on these frequency ratings you guys look for and how I apply that to an Esky 704B gyro I intend using with a Corona SC receiver? Thanks.
