Default Need Opinion-Fut 3152 vs Airtronics 94842

Gonna buy some new servos, either the futaba 3152's, or maybe the Airtronics 94842's, both seem like they would do that task, but the airtronics are much faster and stronger, for about the same price. (at 6v)

Anyone have anyexperience with the 94842's? I've searched but to no avail. Mostly concerned about speed, and centering accuracy, torque is a bonus for the future, but not really a deciding factor for me between these two servos.

Thanks in advance!

I've never seen Airtonics servos at the fields I fly at, but I can tell you lots of good stuff about the 3152's. I personally own about 28 of them, really good servos.

Yep, I need to order the servos soon to take advandage of the $20 off and the free shipping, so I think I'll just get the 3152's unless I hear really good feedback about the airtronics before sunday night.

THere is one review on the airtronics site that indicated the gear train would snap if the servo would ever pull full torque, so that kinda turned me off but can you ever really trust an anonymous review?
