Whilst I haven't tried the stock servos, I'm having an awesome time with the 5035HDs!
Whilst they're about two to three times the price of the stock servos, they feel very precise + smooth and appear to have virtually no blowback whatsoever.
Apart from the price, the only other two slight disadvantages are they're a tad smaller (actually sort of good for the aileron as it means you can run the wire straight down through the slot) and they're a tad heavier. To remedy the former issue, just make sure you use enough glue to hold them down and stick a tiny piece of card in-between the servo and foam just to tighten it a tad (only necessarily for the aileron I found)
They come with a super long servo arm for the aileron by the way. Now I was told that I should use the kit's servo arm as it eliminates differential problems. However, I've had absolutely no problem with the Hitec arm + it looks quite a bit cleaner in my opinion. Picture of mine here: https://static.rcgroups.net/forums/a...-209-image.jpg
The JR 188 as STLAV8R recommends also looks sweet!
