I re read my post and actually meant low profile not slim. I need more room behind the servo. I use a DX3s also if that makes a difference.

You can't go wrong with the Futaba. Been running them for years plenty strond and durable. Most of all they are priced right and can take a beating and center properly.

In that case, flog the standard receiver on ebay and get a SR3500 micro receiver. They're about 1/3 the size of the standard receiver.

THESE are apparently very good servos... metal geared and quick too.

General servo knowledge :

futaba or ko, very first choices.

might try : savox, orion, sanwa/airtronics

should avoid : anything else such as hitec, towerpro, bluebird etc...

Add the BLS 551 to that list. Replaced one of my 9551 with it and it's smooth! Same specs but brushless power

I've been running the 9550 for a few years now. Very good servos and very smooth. I did try the KO for awhile and it was also very good but felt "edgy" to me. Not a bad thing necessarily, just different.
