Solar d772 is probably best price/oz durable.... I dont know. I run hitec, jr, futaba and just grabbed a few 500oz savox with good luck so far

I'm running a Solar D772 on my Ridgecrest with a 5A BEC on 6V. Seems to work pretty good, although I think the specs are a bit over rated (see the reviews on the Hobbypartz site). Haven't had a problem with it yet.

what rig are you running it in? the hitec 645 or 5645 are about 30 bucks and about 130 -170 oz of torque.

Which one you have gotten, I received 2 turnigy TRY-1268HV and TRY-1267HV, both shuttered and I have asked for return already. Will try the bluebird one next time. I seems to have bad luck with Turnigy servo, bluebird has been good.

I almost ordered the TRY-1269HV, but I didn't think it would be enough. LOL

Here's what I ordered. I plan on pulling it apart to inspect everything before I run it.

I had seen a conversations that the hobbyking had very common failure of bending the pins. Hope you have better luck cause the specs are there for sure!

Worst case, I'll see if Gunnar can make me some replacements.

Well, just an update, I apologize to anyone that has ordered any of these, I blew out the main gears in 3 of these this afternoon. The specs say the geartrain is Ti-Aluminum Alloy. Looks like everything is Ti other than the main gear. Seems as the overall diameter of the main gear is a touch small, there's too much backlash. The servo is nice and strong, plenty strong enough to roll the main gear's teeth over with ease. GRRR... I'm hoping to find a suitable replacement set. I'll update here if I find something.

Running the D772 here powered right off the lipo. Never wanted 'more' servo while using it.

[good post, edited a little bit]

"Good" sorta depends on what rig & what use.

What is good in a 1.9 for fun/trail runs is NOT good for a Super in comps.

Fun/trail rigs and lighter scale rigs can get away with servos under 200inoz, 1.9 comp rigs are looking for ~200inoz+ and 2.2 comp rigs are looking at 300inoz+ and an external BEC.

So, a statement of, "I want a cheap servo" is sorta useless.
Is a $10 servo that dies in the first run worth it?? [likely - no]
On the other hand, is a $180 servo in a 1.9 trail rig worth it? [likely no, unless you have money to burn]
