Default Servo Question, Input requested

All the specs are very similar on the Futaba S148, S3003, S3004 and the Hitec HS-425BB. The S148 is called a Precision servo while the S3003 is called a Standard servo, yet the specs are essentially identical. Same specs essentially for the S3004 and the HS-425BB.

I realize the BB servos should be a little better under load, but would appreciate your input using these models as I plan to buy some flight packs pretty soon.

Thanks

open up the servo and look at the pot, don't recommend it if you haven't done it before you'll probably ruin ther servo. there you will find your differance. basically a higher grade pot means better centering and position sensing, also becuase of the cleaner resistance on the pot the gain on the amp is turned up a hair meaning it has a bigger ear to listen and make position changes. but go ahead and trust those specs
you'll probably never notice the differance since it's minute but is there
