Did you do a lot of straight and level flying with that HB in and Edge????

No, I pretty much fly all my planes like I hate them, and diggity2424 can attest, I show the Yak (the HB's current host) no love.
I'm sure it will die one of these days soon, but its got nearly 175 flights on it, and a few crashes too.

Many people have gotten good mileage out of the HB's. Even those that fly the snot out of their planes!

I think it's one of those situations where you could be fine but you're also fighting with fire too.

do you have a link to that servo? Always a good idea so we don't have to go hunting.

I honestly would just get the Hitecs to start with. If they burn out, send them back to Hitec, and they will repair/replace them at no charge. I've used Turnigy lipo's with no issues, but I don't know that I'd trust their servos (or anything mechanical) to center or hold up well. Either way you go, let us know how you like the plane!

not sure about that servo, but I just put this in the elevator of my shp after my hs65mg burned out and it is impressive, .06 and 3.0kg.cm

I found that most hobbyking servos has less resolution than brand servos. It doesn't affect 3D but it affects precision flying.

teddy5085 you can certainly try those servos and I'm sure we'd all be paying attention to your results. The specs are great. It just depends on whether you believe them or not.

The big concern about servos is whether they have play in the gears, how long the gear train and bearings will last, how well they center etc. I have played with cheaper servos with mixed results. For instance, if you gave me a set of power HD 1711 mg's I would not put them in a plane. They are fast and strong but very sloppy. The hitec servos are proven and are the safer bet.

You are taking on a lot of risk when you decide be the first to try the cheaper servos. In my mind you are risking the price of the cheaper servo plus some part of the airframe. When you multiply that by 4 it adds up to quite a bit since the servo will be a throw-away item if it isn't very good. Purchasing the hitec servo represents very little risk since they are proven to be quality.

That being said, the savings add up pretty quick if the turnigy servos end up being really good. That is why I say everyone will be paying attention to your experience. We would want to know if you got a mixed bag as far a quality goes (i.e. some of the servos are solid and some jitter/center poorly), how the actual performance compares to spec and how they hold up over time.

It is up to you what you choose but the above is how I would evaluate the choice.
