Default Comparable servos-different brands

Being fairly new to this hobby I'm learning as quickly as I can about different products and brands.

Currently I'm using Futuba servos with all of my planes and was wondering what Hi-Tec and JR servos would be comparable to the Futaba servos listed below.


Futaba 3003-3004 -standard generic servos
Futaba 3151-lower end digitals
Futaba 9152-higher end digitals

Thanks...any other good insight you could throw in there wouldn't hurt either...

You can use just about any brand of servos that you want to, just make sure that the wiring for the servo matches your brand of radio.

This thread has a link to a page that might help
http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_3717225/tm.htm
The author has created a web page with specs for about 1300 servos. Even at that number some are not listed but it does have a ton of data available in one place. In some cases there are links to the manufacturer's info pages.
