Default Which Deoxit?

I've seen a bazillion posts about using Deoxit to clean the linear servos but never WHICH Deoxit. I've been using alcohol to clean mine and it's worked fine for me but the switches on my motorcycle are getting a little flakey and I have some acid corroded connectors on equipment at work so I figured now might be a good time to see what the hoopla is all about. This stuff is crazy expensive and there are dozens of different formulas so I want to get the right one. I've got piles of the linear servos and 5 different birds that use them so after cleaning the motorcycle switches etc.it'll likely be used exclusively for heli servo cleaning. Good old fashioned contact cleaner is reasonably priced. Is Deoxit really worth 5-10 times the price? I'm going to be expecting miracles at $15.00+ for a can.

No Deoxit suggestions? I went safe (and cheap) and bought CRC electronics cleaner yesterday. Under $4.39 a can at Wally world.

I use D5 couple times a week and tear them down and clean with alcohol about once a month or so.

Thanks for the info. I'll be on the lookout for that flavor.
