Default 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.

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.
