Servo suggestions for twist 480
I just purchased a Twist 480 and can't decide what servos to buy. They suggest the Eflight DS76 servos but the reviews I have read aren't to positive for those servos. I do have a tendency to be hard on planes with blenders and violent direction changes. I have flown all nitro except a eep crack yak until now so I don't have experience with this size plane and need help choosing servos.

THE WORLDS LOWEST COST (RELIABLE) SERVO
The TG9e boasts the same performance as other servo's 10x the price with a .10sec travel time and up to 1.5kg in torque and an ultra narrow dead bandwidth!
The TG9e performance is on par with the famous HXT900, however the TG9e isn't as resistant to crashes or over-loading.
Please always ensure your control surfaces are bind free.
Torque: 1.5kg/cm (4.8V)
Operating speed: 0.10sec/60 degree 0.09sec/60 degree(6.0V)
Operating voltage: 4.8V
Temperature range: 0-55C
Dead band-width: 7us
Lead Length: 260mm
Here is a video of my 48" W/S scratch built Katana with the HXT 9 gram servos, and a 480 motor, the turnigy servos are about the same, I think they are made by the same MFG.
My Friend Steve is doing the Maiden Flight, I am Doing The Video.

Thanks Chellie, I went with the Hitecs. Next time I get a foamie I will give those Turnigys a try, I just am leery about putting plastic gear servos in a balsa plane. I had a tower pro strip in flight and down came my foam yak but a little glue and a new Hitec it was back in the air. :)
HS65 all the way
good servo, name brand and works like a horse.
I like the HXT900 9gr servos. I use them in all my pusher jet builds and typical park flyers up to 48" WS or so. I sell them on my site.
