Default What are ya'll running for servos?

been out of the game for a bit and just completed a scx10iii. I used a HS7950TH that I had laying around and it works great. I'm about to pick up another scx10iii kit and will need a servo. I keep seeing all these different brands of servos that are out now but don't know if they are worth a crap or not. Last time I was involved in the hobby Savox servos were the new thing. So what are all you guys running these days?

Do you have an approximate budget? If yes, sharing it will help narrow the responses you get.

Personally I use the DS3218MG from Amazon. It's ok. It's cheap. It's stronger that what comes with RTRs, but you can obviously do much better.

Using a Savox 1210SG myself, never found myself needing more, no issues. Could have longer leads though.

I'll bite, I absolutely love the build quality and the fact they're US based but one thing I dont care for is the performance. If only the performance could match its build quality and beefy gears this would be THE servo but I cant recommend it. Everyone's standards are different though so mileage may vary.

For me Savox 2290 or the HH SHV500 V3 but I'm a buy once cry once type.
