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.

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 was quietly hoping there was some new good micro sized digital servo that i hadnt heard about,now i wish i ticked the box to get the servo included with the 401 , so a S9650 it will be,not sure when,i badly want another TP2100 pack as well,ah what the hell,,order one along with the servo and save a postage fee , thanks for reply

Ain't broke? Then fix it!
what about the new airtronics micro digital? Anyone tried that? Is it compatible with the 401?

p/n 94761Z

I'm curious about this one too..

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.

hitec HS-5245 digital servo just as great as 9650 $15 cheaper.. i love the combine of 401 and 9650,, but the 9650 top case "mounting" so easy to break,,, 2 in 4 of crack i break the 9650 top case

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?

the airtronics that i use is much smaller, works great, cant tell much of a difference when flown by ones with the 402 and 9650 setup.
