Is everyone running the the Hitec HS 65MG's? What do you think? What about Savox? Those look pretty nice but I'm not sure which ones are their equal to the 65MG's.

EDIT: Looks like this is the Savox equivalent. http://www.savoxusa.com/Savox_SH0255...avsh0255mg.htm

I like that it has metal gears. Opinions?

Cool. I love the idea of metal gears. A stripped servo can lead to a bad day.

Heh, I don't read the summary... I go directly to the specs for comparison.

i dont run a spinner. blocks cooling air and are a major pain IMO to install on electric motors. but esprit has some nice ones, as well as the plastic EF elite spinners

Sorry for the mix-up, the specs section of the HS-65MG page has been changed to show metal gears...appreciate you bringing it to our attention!
