Default 424 servos

Been looking at the TS-35 Tower servos as a possible 424 quickie fit.

Specs look good, they have 4 servo screws, and tower has them on sale for $19.99 each or $56.99 if you buy 3.

I'm going to give them a shot in my next 424 seeker.

Anyone got any feedback on these??

I heard that the Tower servos are knock offs for the Hi-tech for less money. I was thinking about using some also.
I would be interested on any feedback.

Yep, looks like identicle specs to the 225, should be good for 424.

Dave, I've been running the GWS Park HPX for the last few years with no issues at all. Around $13.00 each with ball bearing and 42 to 47 in-oz of torque. Have not stripped any gears or had a failure through a few midairs. Wish I could say that with some of my name brand servos.[]

you may want to look int the HD Brand servos from Hobby City, i dont think much of Tower Brand stuff. but for a few more dollars try the INOLABS. very good and very fast.
