Default Analog servos

I wanna make my furion 450 FBL. It would probably be blinding fast. However, it has analog 65mg servos on it. I know the 540 has an option for analog servos, however I wanted to know how they would fly?
Should I get digitals, or will it fly alright with the 65's?

It'll fly fine with the 65's in it. The 5065's are the exact same specs.

Yea i'm not worried about specs. I know that analogs don't have the centering that digitals do, that's basically the only thing. Servos make the bird.

Cool. On another note, how's the e4 head? I've been told that's the best head to make a furion FBL with.

I know how they both work, I was just wondering if anybody had any experience.

Well as I said in my earlier post, I had 65MGs on my Beam E4.
Now I have the MKS DS92As on cyclic.
Honestly, with my flying style/competence I'm not sure I can tel the difference.

I think my flips are a little cleaner/straighter, but that could also just be me improving with time.
