Default What servos would you use on a 800

Getting my list together for a Trex 800. What servos would you recommend or have had good experience with.

I am debating the;
1. KST X20
2. KST 815/805
3. KST MS2208
4. Xpert R2

Thanks.

The early kits came with align bl800h servos on cyclic and bl850h on the tail. They have recently been discontinued and are available at good discounts. They work well.

I'll take a look at those. Thanks.

I found (4) new KST 815/805 servos for about $220. Smoking deal. From what I found so far they are decent servos but don't know how well they perform on a 800.

Edit; a rep from KST recommended the X20 series. Going with those.

Xpert has the best tech on the servo driver board, and the reliability/service has been perfect. It's the best high end servos made and worth the extra cost to get the R2.
