How much do you want to spend on servos? Any good standard servo will work. Do you plan to run a regulated voltage system or High Voltage? Depending on what you plan to do that can limit your choices. Not as many high voltage servos as there are 6.0 volt servos. If you're looking for good servos at a good price the Align 620 servos are a really good servo. I don't run them in my ElyQ, I have Futaba BLS 253s, but I run Align servos in my Trex 550 and am impressed.

They will do a better job but the align,or savox servos will save you money in the short run. If you don't mind putting more money out up front.

Mks servos
Jr servos
Or futaba will do the trick. Just make sure the have good torque and decent speed


Thx C.B.

Bell cranks certainly do reduce the amount of stress that are placed on the servo. JR 8717, Futaba BLS 251 or 253, etc. will work well with a direct to swash set up. For what it's worth my Trex is direct to swash and the Align servos have held up very well. I'm not pushing Align but if you're working within a tight budget they are a good servo for the price. With that said, I'm very pleased with the BLS 253s I have on my ElyQ.

Im running ds610 there awsome cheap what more do you want. Also check into SAVOX servos. There availuable at rcheliworkz. Savox servos makes the align servos but there cheaper for some reason. Im running there tail and throttle servo and there sweet.

Sorry for commenting offtopic, but one question - wifeorheli? I am not a native english speaking person, so generally I am not in the place to comment such things, but your post made me very curious - is there something like a common use for 'there', as you used that word in one sentence as a subtitute for 3 various words/phrases - 'they're/there/their'?
I'am asking as I found it difficult to read your posts sometimes.

BTW I use Align DS 610/620 in my Visions 50E and 50C, also in Gaui X5; Spektrum H6040 in my Vision 90 and Henseleit TDR, and all of them work without a hitch. More than 1000 flights on all that birds and no servo failure (all on 6v).
