Default Assault 700 & HK550TT FBL

I am looking into building these two models. I recently crashed my two helis, a trex 700 and a 550. The crashes were total re kits and I can not afford to pay for new align combo kits. It wa so bad that nothing was salvageable. Even the servo cases, frames etc all broke into pieces.So I figure I am going to give the hobby king kits a try due to the price, No major 3d flying here. My main question is what servos, through HK should I purchase. I see they have so many choices but which servos do they sell that are decent. I don't have much experience with their line of servos. Or should I go with Align servos and call it a day? But the HK/turnigy servos I have been hearing good things about and the prices are right on point. I just dont want to make the wrong choice. I will be running everything through the Ikon FBL unit, Remember, very tight budget. and want to be flying by end of Feb. Thanks for the help.
Jeff

Expect to spend around 100-250 in parts to get either flying safely. Don't get me wrong, they're great kits, they're just not manufactured as well, and their metal parts are made out of some really soft stuff.
Just be prepared to check that your tailboom isn't cut at an angle, replace torque tube gears, torque tube, and (Assault 700 only) swashplate. They're real cheap and sometimes you can build an decent airframe for just over half of the cost of an Align.
