Digital Tail Servo For Trex

hi all

Im thinking of getting a digital servo for my rex tail,is there a favoured one amongst you rex vets?, surely i cant go wrong with a Futaba S9650? using a GY401 gyro.

cheers

It's certainly the best combo I've tried - and I've tried 3 or 4 different non-digi's (including HS56s) and also the HD877 digi.

I run the airtronics. The pilots and I around here have decided it is just as good as the 9650 and it seems to be what we run when those are out of stock.

I think Kyle Stacy has it on the tail of one of his machines, maybe his SE.

There is... the airtronics 94761 digital is smaller and lighter than the 9650. It is what Iam using and it is working great with my 401 in digital mode with zero delay. My gain is %40 in my radio and the servo ball is set at 8 mm from center. That is the servo wheel that came on the servo.

I have never used a digital servo. What makes them better from the ordinary besides being stronger?

If you are going HiTec digital why not the HS-5125?
