go to that site and pick out the one that fits the servo you have. they have one for every kind of servo and get the aluminum ones. if your getting a new servo i would go with a hitec 7955 and it comes with an aluminum one in the box.

i run the servo horn the servos come with. all i do is drill out the whole a little bigger so the screw will go the the horn. amain has dynamite ones that are longer and aluminum for every kind of servo there is.

longer will give you more steering and aluminum will last. i only run aluminum horns because the plastic ones always break or strip.

if you mean why the adapters thats so they have one arm with the inserts to fit all type of servos instead of haveing to put in 3 or 4 different servo horns. Just a way to cut some cost in pcakaging a kit

they use them so someone that doesnt know what servo can switch the insert if they have different types of servos, but if you have a good servo and thats the only kind you use than there is no need to get the ones with inserts.

is it necessary to step up to one of these horns? or just the standard aluminum is fine?
