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.

use a 9 Gram servo, they are a little more robust than a 7 gram servo, I found problems with the Turnigy Digital servos, so this is a better servo to use.I Really like the HXT 9 gram servos, but they are sold out at this time on those servos. i use both the turnigy and HXT servos, they work great.

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.

Thank you for the welcome and suggestions. What do you think of the Hitec 5055mg servos? I like the idea of metal gear and digital is always nice for centering.

You cant go wrong using hitec servos, they are some of the best of the best servos on the market, those metal gear servos will work great. They are a little expensive, but you get what you pay for :)

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. :)

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.
