Edit: just going to save. Don't want to not trust cheap servos on a big plane
I just started using them but only have a dozen flights on them so far. Plenty of power and very fast, center great. I have been using solar servo's in several planes of various sizes since they first appeared and like them a lot. I have experienced only three stripped gears and no electronic failures. One stripped gear due to jamming the rudder in my car, one stripped gear inflight due to underestimating the stress from the elevator on my Skywing MXS, and another stripped gear from using too long a servo arm on my SkywingEdge. So basically all these incidents were more or less due to my improper use or handling of the servo's. I do fly my planes pretty hard, especially wot tumbles and ke spins and such, so they do get a pretty good workout. The first set I used in my EF MXS for over a year have well over 200 very hard flights on them and are still going strong. Now all this being said, I'm not necessarily recommending them, just relating my experience with them.
