Default Throttle Servo Recommendations

My servo died last weekend at the beginning of my main. So, I'm in need for a replacement.

Any recommendations?

Serpent 720
Steering servo - Futaba S9451

My throttle and steering servo are the Robbe/Futaba S9402.. Yes, analog, not digital.

Why not digital..
Well, because a digital servo draws more current from your battery pack...
A digital servo will draw maximum current always, until it reaches it's desired position, while a analog servo will draw maximum current while traveling to it's position, but less current when it almost reaches it's desired position.
So escpecially for your throttle servo, while under breaking, a digital servo will draw a lot more current than an analog one....

because much consumption electric power of digital servo
i also knew that throttle servo must be used analog servo in several years ago.

But recent receiver battery had big capacity.

so many RC users are using digital servo in throttle servo.

I run the KO servos for both throttle and steering. They are digital but with 1400maH battery pack, battery life is not an issue. I can run an hour main easily. The servo for steering is PDS-2368-ICS and PDS-2367-ICS for throttle. They are very dependable and tough. I haven't had any issue with the ones in use in my 1/8th. They have built in heat sinks to help remain consistant over a long main, which some other servos have problems when getting warm.
