They are Futaba’s low end digital servos that are very reliable and good for sport flying.

Ditto that - I have them on my Swift and they work fine for my AP use. I can feel that they aren't quite as locked in as higher end servos, but thats fine for me.

I'm using them in my 600 with no problems. They are handling my light 3D fine. Once i start looking for hardcore, probably use the 9451's

If your looking for the middle ground try the 3050's

hope it helps
the 9351's are coming soon, and they are torque monsters- 192 oz-WOO

The 3151's are decent servos, I started out with them in my Raptor 50, they work for general flying in FF but I quickly upgraded to 9252 for my pitch and cyclics as I started to get more aggressive. The 3151 are justa little slow for me. The only draw back is that the 9252 are only rated for 4.8 volts, they will take 5 to 5.3 volts fine. I got mine for $60 a piece on ebay.

I would definitally consider using better servos on your TREX 600. I used the Futaba 9252's in a Raptor 50 electrics conversion and they worked great. If your interested I have 3 like new(2 short flights no crashes no 3D) JR8611 digital servos(260oz of torque (4.8v), 18 sec/60° @ 4.8v) in the classifieds; 3 for 200 shipped(they are $114 from Horizon). These will also work very well in your TREX.

This is a good motor choice for T-rex 600 or 600 Class Helicopter.

How's that for a completely unabashed sales job from out of the blue ?!?!

I doubt that anyone will believe that motor is any better than the current stock Trex-600 motor without some proof. good luck though.

it probably IS the current stock Trex motor, re-badged from the chinese OEM or just straight stolen
