Default Which ESC is best for Digital servos

Are some speed-controls better suited to handle digital servos? I just got a Futaba S9550 servo and I plan on using my Novak GTX. I've read about these servos possibly drawing too much voltage. Any kind of mod that I can do or should I get a different ESC?

Would not have a factual opinion if Keyence is better then the Novak, but it is certainly better then my QC2 I had. Handles my digital without issue.

Both my KO and LRP QC1 have had no problems powering my digital servos, even at 7.2v.

I run a GTX with digital servos without any problems. Although I have had problems with a QC2 and digital servos.

I run the GTX exclusively in my oval cars, my daughter's Losi truck, and my touring cars. I run the S9550's in my oval cars with no issues, and I run airtronics digital servos in my touring cars too. The GTX is as good as an ESC gets. You don't need to mod it or change anything. Just enjoy your fun!
