I haven't had any complaints about the savox 1251...if you wanna give it a shot your more than welcome to try out the one i just got this weekend. Apparently its pretty power hungry and some people have complained about brown outs with spektrum stuff but, I haven't had those issues

Fixed it for ya FJ.

I been running this servo for a couple years now. I like it cause it's got 100% metal gears. But what do I know right.

+1 - I'm quite happy with this servo, and you can't beat the price. There might be something "better" out there, but I'm not willing to spend twice the money to find out.

Futaba 9551 has worked very well for me. Very smooth feel. If you want a little more edge, the KO 2413 is also very nice.

You'll find that there's LOTS of cross polination between the Orion, Savox, and Spektrum servos.

I like the Savox 1251, and it's variants. It can be a little power hungry and cause some issues with some Spektrum RXs.

When I finally make some big money, I'll spring for the Futaba 9551. I got a chance to borrow one once for a few weeks, very smooth.

I've got my eye on the new KO RSx one 10

http://www.kopropo.com/america/index...190&Itemid=198

Always loved KO Servos...Futaba would be second choice IMHO.

The Team Orion one is identical to the Savox 1251. I broke the gears on my Vortex servo and replaced them with Savox gears.

Currently running the 1251mg on both 17.5 and 10.5 without any problems.
