They're cheap and they work extremely well, and they cut very straight. Power tools are nice but sometimes can be expensive.

HS-5645MG's would work fine if you are just planning on sport flying. For 3D I'd urge you to step it up on your servo selection, HS-5585MH as a good option or the HS-7955TG as the best option.
