The 3305 is sloooow... you want something with a .15 sec transit speed at least... and something with at least 110oz/in of torque. It's gonna be tough to find a metal gear servo with those specs in that price range. I've used the Hitec HS-965MG as a throttle servo with good results, but it's twice the price of the Futaba S3305.

I would try to find something used if you're on that tight of a budget. I've bought all of my servos used except for one. One place not to skimp is on servos.

I use Ace 1313's in both positions on my 8ight 1.0. They are strong, super fast and cheap

Transit time: 0.13 sec/deg @ 6V
Torque: 173.6 oz @ 6V
