Metal gear servo for elevator, r they really that bad?

I know many have mentioned nylon gear will have lesser mesh and play hence is more precise. But with more and more molded fuse, usually the elevator and rudder servo are built and sealed into the tail area, rendering servicing to require lots more work.

I got HS85 n HS81 in both nylon and mg version. Which one should I go for into my Simprop Excel Comp 2. The v tail servo though located in the mid fuse, to get into them and reinstall is a pain to deal with as it is at the very rear end of fuse opening.

It's also been stated here that you'll have more slop in your linkages than you'll ever see from metal gear servo wear. I'd use the MG servo, less chance of that one needing replaced too.
