Bro,I think it should be a brushless.Because,Brushless consumes less power,And must be Digital too...

My futaba s9551 works great. Small, light, and fast. I'm thinking about getting the brush less version.

Anything LPF, digital, and that has a decent speed. Brushless is useless in a 1/10th TC servo, because of the fact we run 5000mAh packs.
The new, LPF one from Core RC is getting good reviews from the brits, and the Futaba servos are also very good. I've ran a 9550/9551, and I'm currently running a 9452 in my Mi4 with absolutely no issues.

I had a KO 2413. I couldn't tell the difference between that and my futaba.

How about the Orion VDS-1009 servo? Titanium/aluminum gears... It's faster, torquier and less expensive than the KO 2413 ICS and Futaba 9551.

GEEZE! It's even lighter. First I have heard of it. Do you own it? Comment if you do.

Yes, I own it. I know another top driver who owns it and runs it without issue as well.

Used many servos as so many are great for a wide variety of applictions. Airtronics 357, 358, Futaba BLS451, BLS351, and now BLS551.

For TC I would stick with 60 @.10 second transfer speed and torque of 100oz/in or higher.

Personally anything faster than 60@ .10 feels too twitchy for me on steering.

I changed to the Futaba BLS551 to save weight vs the BLS451 that I had in.

Another Futaba S9551 user here and I LOVE it....


I would not be able to control my car with any thing faster... It'd be too "twitchy"
