I have been running both the Solid G (electric aurora, and nitro aurora), and a Mini G (second nitro aurora) both with fantastic results. Some of the local team guys have had both the Solid G and the Spartan, and now have the Solid G's on their machines .

Both are simple to set up along side with the G View.

Servo wise I'd recommend the BLS251... I had the 8900G on mine. It was good, but never perfect. I can't explain why but I always had a small twitch with it combined with the Spartan.

Both work great.
