Default 500L Servo Recommendations

I picked up a 500L kit recently and need some servos to go along with it. I'll probably be running an Ikon or Vbar on it, just doing some sport flying, loops and what not, maybe going inverted soon.

Don't really want to spend over $200 for the the set, I'm thinking KST 515s for cyclic and 565 for the tail. Anything else I should consider?

That's the setup I have. The tail servo required shaving a bevel on the inside ends of the frame. Either that or split the servo and reassemble it after the top of the case was mounted. Happy with them.

Cool, thanks for the info about the tail servo being a bit of a tight fit.

The KST are great options, but consider the new Align mini servos too. I haven't used them but I'm liking the micro size a lot so far.

The newest align mini's are amazing so far. I'm running them on the cyclic on my goblin 500. Huge improvement over the savox.

Thanks guys, I have the KSTs coming from Banggood. I tried to buy them at Aloft but they can't seem to keep stuff in stock and won't let you order if it is out of stock.
