It all depends on what you want from the servo as to which one you should get. I run KO-propo RSXone servos for both my throttle and steering. These are high speed servos. Very nice aswell but a little on the pricey side at anywhere from $120ish on Ebay to $145 from Amainhobbies.com free shipping.
Basic things I would look for if you don't want to go that extreme is.
1) If you are using any newer radio you want a digital servo
2) Higher speed is helpful
3) Metal gears which most have now
4) Depending on what receiver pack you have (LiPo, LiFe, NiMH) make sure your servo can handle that voltage.
