lloyd, I use the Hitec HS-325HB servos on my Rex 600 for cyclic. Centering is good and they have plenty of torque for the cyclic control. They are analog, hoever they fit the bill nicely. Cost is great too!

lloyd, Yes, I'd say they are a bit extreme...however the MKS BL980 is one fast servo for the tail!!! :222: I picked one up on a Black Friday sale from Helidirect for 65.00! Now the price is back up...I lucked out! For me unless you will be doing hard 3D I can't see any reason not to use the analog type servos on the cyclic controls. As long as the speed is decent and they have the torque needed, they will work very well! :130: The cost of the Hitec analogs is dirt cheap and I have them on my CX500 and Rex600. They work very well for me! :125:
