Who Makes the Best Under $10 Servo?


I've tried a few, like HXT, EXI, Tower Pro, E-Max. Want to get opinions on which are best for the low price, like less-notchy, reliable, center well, etc.. Talking about 9 to 12 gram servos.

Henge makes better quality inexpensive servos..

Here's the Henge 933 sold by HobbyKing.com as HK-933MG. A metal gear servo with top ball bearing, and current limiting electronics. 12grams and only $11.20 plus shipping, when in stock. Same servo sells on eBay for about the same price with shipping.

What can you tell me about carbonite? Stronger than the other non-metal like nylon? How does it compare to metal? Tks.
