you also want a servo with a fair amount of speed. Anywhere in the range of .10-.12 is plenty. I've tried heli collective servos that are much faster, and it wasnt worth it. A good servo with 150oz/in of torque and a .10 sec a60 degree arc time is plenty. I personally use the hitec 7955TG for both steering and throttle/brake, using 6.4v LiFe packs. EPA is set to 50-60%. At 333oz/in and .10 sec its overkill, but I never have to worry about a servo. Ever.

Anything between 150 and 200oz will do the job
