Hitec 7950th steering servo and 5645mg dig. I have the same radio and had some issues with running a 646mg (analog) dig servo. Put the 5645 in and works perfect. Be sure to get ur self a ccbec for your steering servo.

I've run both a Hitec HS-7955TG and Hobbico CS-170 on my AX10, no complaints either way. Plus the Hobbico is a little easier on the wallet

I run Tower Pro HT MG996R. Have them in a 2 crawlers, VXL Stampede, and a trail truck. A buddy has 2 in 2 different Stampedes (CC MM).

I have had zero problems. Inexpensive and strong. Have never needed a BEC either. There may actually be an updated, improved, or better model out there. If people mention the 995, ignore it, the 996r is an upgraded version, so what applies to the 995 in many ways does not apply to the 996. Personally, I wonder sometimes when this subject comes up if some people cant tell the difference between a 5 and a 6-they look so similar

JR 8711 ... I love it's quite operation never any annoying buzzing or twitching and theres plenty of power for a crawler at 6 volt 403 in/oz of torque.

This is a CC BEC and I would recommend getting one if you are going to run a powerful servo like the ones mentioned above. There are different ways to hook them up so do a search and find the way that best suits you.

I also run the 7955 with a CC BEC.

They draw higher voltage from the motor batteries and drop it to a voltage level that is suitable for your receiver and servos. This is required in applications which draw high power for multiple servos or use more than 3S motor packs, as most ESCs with linear BECs are not designed for these applications.
It makes sure your gear gets the right voltage. Sometimes if your not running one you will notice that all of a sudden in a bind you lose power. This prevents that from happening. You can either run the BEC right to the servo hooking up the + to the + and - to the -, then run the signal wire from the servo to the receiver. You can also plug it right in the the receiver, but need to disconnect the red wire from the ESC as well as remove the yellow wire from the BEC. Most ESC have an internal BEC but they can't handle the power demands of high torque servos.

JR DS8711, 403oz torque. Works very good, a little more money but worth every penny.
