I like the align ds415 for cyclic...and the align ds520 for tail on my tarot 450.

Check out the Solar or T-pro..

I've got all Solars and they've been treating me good for hard sport flying.

@ASTREA1
Is there a standard size classification for servos? I've been assuming that 9g = trex 450, but those 11g look like they're the same size.

@OP
I'm still a newbie at this but i got these

Been through two crashes. One where i cratered the heli on its maiden flight (Wind carried it up and i lost sight), and another is when i lost a servo screw and flipped the heli (simple flip but strong enough to bend a blade grip link)

Pitchp: Do you have those KST servos ? If so how do you like them ? I'm thinking of trying these out when I pick up a devil 480.

I've built 3 Tarots, 2 450s and a 500. I'm using HS-65MG in both 450s

Great servos. No Slop! I'm never buying align servos again. KST all the way. And I also love hitecs 5065mg

Hitec HS-5065MG vs Align DS415 (1 min 59 sec)

for a low cost but reliable servo, try these
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dproduct=16260

for a more robust servo try these:
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=14279

That stuff says it will run at 6V but I run all mine at 5V and I haven't had a failure for sometime. I'm truely impressed with the low cost plastic digitals, I have a 450 flying with a align 3G on those cheap digitals and she flies great

The metal gear servos will take a few crashes so if you are just learning they might be the best way to go.

Good luck with your build
