Well it depends on how often you crash. For example, I hardly ever crash because I don't try stuff I know I can't do. So the HS 65HB servos work for me, but for the normal flyer they will need 65 mg servo.

Also the mg servos aren't full proof. The MG servos do have a plastic gear in them as a fail safe.
You know something has to break, but changing out the gears in the servos is a pain, so go with the MG servos.

If you have the 65HB, can you convert them to 65MG?

The first gear is a plastic gear but it's not a fail safe but more to isolate the motor from the metal gear train. Suppose to keep noise/interference down or so I've read.

My 65mg stripped after a minor crash, took back off and ended up crashing hard (didnt know it was stripped).

still rebuilding after 1 1/2 weeks and $100+

I just made the conversion from HB to MG. I got the gears and servo grease from servocity.com. The gears were 12.95 each and 3.99 for the grease (which looks like I could rebuild many servos with this little container). Shipping was 5.95, and I received them very quickly.
