Default Futaba BLS157HV Servo???

What are the opinions on this servo. If I did my calcs right, it is around 513 oz in. Out of stock, but $149 on ReadyHeli doesn't seem that bad. I am on the waiting list, but I have no idea how long it will be.

Wes

FUTM0751 Futaba BLS157HV Brushless Ultra Torque High Voltage Servo

This is the Futaba BLS157 brushless digital ultra torque, high voltage servo.

That would explain why they are so hard to find. Never looked at any HV servos til now, thanks.

My sample servo is on the way. The power rating is higher than any of the others in this size as far as I've seen.

Nope, the only Futaba servo I have owned was on my heli. Just decided to step up my servo and was looking around.

Something to concider when it comes to futaba, hitec or Jr there are many people who swear by these brands, I have used all three of these brands with no issues, buy the cheapest most powerful servos from any of these brands and you will be happy.
