Help my choose a digital tail servo for my Rex guys

Well I refused to listen to you all and paid the price it would seem. The HS-50 is simply not man enough for the job, even though the specs make it so temping.

I think its still fine on my 3 cell Zoom but I have had 3 crash's in the past month all related to servo failure. The gears are just too weak and puny, so is the case ing. And my TP2000 Prolite pack and Neu3500 combo are simply working the poor little buggers to their deaths.

So please share your veiws which would you go for and why? Or do you think both are a complete waste of money. I simply want a high quality/performance servo that's gonna not fail on my anymore. If paying a little extra prevents another crash I dont care.

The options...............

Seems like a great value little servo, I cant find much more infomation about it on the web, does anyone know if Saturn are produced under another name aslo?

I also thought about the Polo Digi4 but now Im starting to think it may be a tad too big?

Neither of those links worked for me

I use a JR 281 on the tail. Works very well! Paired with a gyro that can properly handle the digital servo it's a great combo! The servo cost me $35US, but was worth the money!

Let's try this

Saturn S70D Servo

Looks good to me...about the same power as the 281 but a good amount faster. Should be a great tail servo!
