Default Trex 450 Sport servo upgrade

Right now I'm using the stock DS410M's that came with the Sport. I already slapped in a 9257 tail servo.

I was wondering if there was a decent upgrade for the other servos.

Are there faster servos than the DS410M?

I know that when I put in the 9257 tail servo, the speed difference was very noticeable. I could wiggle that stick back and forth as fast as I could and the servo would match my input.

The DS410M's just seem to lag behind when I make some serious input.

HS 65's or I also have some InoLab D202's on a 450 with good results.

Those don't seem like much of an upgrade. From reading the specs, they seem to be actually slightly slower and have around the same torque as the DS410M's. I'm looking for some servos that have fantastic response.


Hard to believe there aren't better servos than the stock DS410M's.

Most of the time you see videos from someone like Szabo, it's using stock equipment. Not a whole lot of .04 HV brushless servos in that size(where two cost more then a full 450 supercombo). Why not try firmer dampers and much faster KBDD paddles first?

Good lord those are fast servos.

Well, I guess I'm just gonna have to settle for my stock servos for cyclic movement. No point in paying an arm and a leg for cyclic servos.

I just thought there were faster decent servos out there for upgrades.

I think the stocks and th Hitec 5065's are fine for a looong time in your flying experience. No doubt these MKS would be fun but unless your one of the chosen few, I doubt you will put them to good use. Forgive my assumption if you are Tareq Alsaadi or Alan Szabo. Then by all means, go for the MKS.
