Question
What's a Good Digital Servo Match for the Futaba GY401 on a Trex?

I see they sell a standard digital servo with this thing, but it's not a micro.

Any thoughts are experiences?

Not to hijack the thread but does anyone have any experience with the futaba 9351 digital servo? I know it's pretty large but I've got one lying around was wondering if I could use it for the rudder.

^^^ That servo is not digital.
9650 is the best choice.

I realize that. I also know the 3110 is $40 less expensive and half the weight of the 9650. I believe, many are using the HS56 and the Futaba 3110 has more torque, faster, and lighter!

^^^ Don't want to sound rude but if you read the title of the post he is asking what is the good digital servo.

Who knows what these will go for, but lowest I have seen is $60 for the 9650.

I understand and I don't want to profess to know what is best, I know I like digitals but I also know I like things that fly light. I also know everyone has a different budget to work with. I have not tried either servo but I'm also looking for opinions.
