They're much more precise and smooth feeling, and they lock into a hover much better. I just need to mess with the pitch curves and cyclic throws/expo until it feels like it should.

I have them on my T-REX450SE and I am really liking them. Very quick and precise but not as much torque as others.

my only concern about getting those futaba 3154 or similar servos for the cyclic is that they look so darn fragile. one small blade strike and the gear sets are gone, not to mention if you crash hard, the servo case may explode. that is why im sticking wtih hs-65mgs now.

The cases were fine in crashes for me on the 3154's, the gear sets didnt hold up to much abuse but they never had issues in flight. There was one issue though, after 122 flights they took control of the heli and made it do a nice big rainbow into the grass . So I took them off and decided to stick with a more burley servo for the job. They flew nice before that though!

I have been flying for about 5 months now. This is a rex 600, stock with a dx7 and Radix blades. A buddy loaned it to me while my 450 was down. Never flown this heli at this field before so was a little shaky with lots of breaks in the action. Any way, here it is.

Not a heli, but I still think everyone should like onboard videos . Here's an onboard video I did recently on my mini pulse (~40in wingspan electric plane).
