So if i could get better for the same without have to add a bec at this time i would rather go that way if i could
A HS65 is not a good tail servo, it's more for cyclic use. Try the Align DS520, it's a fast good digital servo for the tail.

You don't need metal gears for the tail servo. They're better for the cyclics. I doubt you'd need a bec just for the tail servo either.

Might b worth checkin out for a min then u can save for a proper tail and have spares to boot.
and the 290 is a decent tail servo for the price. I am assuming(know i shouldnt) that u want to b able to mount it in the stock location yes?

yes i would like an easy fit replacement. I would rather go for the better up front, thats not a problem i just dont want to have to go for a bec right now if i dont have to. i will go for a jr if its plug & play with no bec, thats fine. When the time comes for gyro, would that require the bec or not?

Needing a bec will vary with each heli. If your esc is getting too hot to touch then it's time for a bec or a better esc. I was able to upgrade my gyro and servos without needing a bec or new esc but some people needed one as soon as they started any upgrading.

Crash.. I think Most people lean on the side of insurance because we know what will happen to eflites esc.. some take chances.. I had installed the hs 65 hb's 1st then the 290.. and my esc ddnt get warm until i put the gyro on.. since then i have changed the esc all together but still use a bec just in case.
Airflow IMO is key hovering has very little air movment passing over the esc and components not to mention the canopy has no flow holes liek the align ones. Ok I'm rambling.. there are alot of options my friend looks like research is gonna be your best way to go but i understand this thread tryin to b a shortcut.

I think the biggest benefit of a BEC is if the speed controller cooks or shuts down for any reason you can still control your heli and at least have a chance at landing.
