Default Nylon VS metal gear servos

What are you guys using for servo gears, I have heard that nylon is better because it doesn't wear as quick. Metal is stronger but wears quicker and may lead to flutter????

i use both, they both have pros and cons but either is acceptable with proper preventative maintenance.

Hi Brian,

Usually even the metal gear servos have one gear that is nylon. It's usually the one that is most subject to wear.

I will get my waiver this year dammit!

Merry Christmas
