Best Digital TR servo for Eolo

I am setting up my new Eolo Spirit and was thinking of going to a digital servo for the TR but dont really have a clue what is the best one for the job. Anyone using a digital setup or have any opinions?

I have the futaba digital servo it's a 9253? I can't remember for sure but I think that's right. The HS-81 would do nothing but wag, wag, wag! I installed the Futaba digital from www.towerhobbies.com and it works like a champ. A word of caution, if you plan on using a digital servo and lipolys you will need a UBEC unless your using a Kontronics ESC. Digital servos use alot more current than standard servos so be forewarned.

The best is probably a Volz Speed-Maxx XP.

I haven't used it yet, but I think mikefaith has one...maybe he will post.

The Futaba S9253/S9254 is a bit big for the Eolo.

I have 9254 on my Eolo Pro SE with micro CSM gyro and the tail is rock solid. You can see pictures of my heli + setup here: http://www.runryder.com/helicopter/t161923p1/

If you have 3S2P or 6S batts at the front (not under, but also see pics in above thread) of the heli it will balance fine.

I do agree though that the Volz servo might be even better as it is lighter.

I am using 2 Volz Mini-Maxx XP servos for the cyclic and a S9294 in combination with a 401 gyro for the tail. The Volz servos are excellent and provide quick and very accurate response. Here's pic .

I replaced my HS81 with a Futaba 9253 and have never looked back. Tail is rock solid.

Yes, it's a full size servo but it fits the Robbe servo mount just fine. The 9254 is faster and and stronger but is heavier.

Another vote for the S9253.

What about the *Multiplex Mini Polo Digi 4 also from Tower? They look promising, has anybody tried them all around on the Eolo
