well considering it's for a electric, considering electrics are light, considering weght distribution is key....


i'd consider the futaba s9550 as THE best.

I agree with Chazz, the 2123 servo from KO is the quickest servo around. I think it's 0.06 or 0.07 seconds for the transit time

I THINK THAT 9451 AND 9550 ARE THE SAME PRICE NOW. AT LEAST IT IS AT THE HOBBY STORE WHERE I WORK AT.

Default Re best servo

Hi,

The KO and Sanwa/ Airtronics are great, but the Futaba 9550 is having the same speed and power, and it's smaller.

That's why the Futaba 9550 is the best to have in my opinion

The BEST? As usual, it depends on budget and needs

But personally, I find the KO 2123 to be candidate for being the best.
