Default HS 65HB good enough for FBL conversion

Converting to flybarless.
I know it would be better to have metal gears.
But can I safely sport fly with the fiber gears ?
Or am I asking for a crash?

What size model? be guided by Hitec's recommendation:

Hitec HS-65HB
"Considered one of the most powerful servos in the micro class, the HS-65 is offered with a choice of “shock resistant” Metal or “zero wear” Karbonite gears. The 65 series features a top-ball bearing for long life and positive centering, 31 ounces/inches of power at 6 volts and is an excellent choice for higher performance micro helicopters, electric park flyers, and 1/18 scale cars."

Personally, would also take total value of flying model into account, this post might assist:

I'm flying my Trex 450 sport with DFC head and HS-65HB servos and it works great. They don't get hot, and are fast enough than what I can handle.
The only bad thing is that they are pretty much guaranteed to strip in a crash, but replacement gear sets are cheap.
The tiny philips head screws on the cases are frustrating, but only because I don't have a small enough driver (I probably ought to do something about that....)

I talked to the HiTec rep at IRCHA and he said they're find on a 450. Don't expect massive speeds from them, but they'll definitely work fine.

I'd strongly recommend them for sport flying, they work great for my mild 3D (more like 2D).
