Default 3rd party servos?

I've just found a ultra cheeeeeap micro servo for about SG$22, thats like $4 more than a 3003. A 3107 costs $32, i'm not really willing to pay for that because I need to keep costs down. Question is, will these cheaaaaaaaap servos crap out or work erractically with my Skysport 4, or will they work perfectly?

What is the brand and model number on the servo you found? We kinda need to know what you found before anyone can give a report on them.

Cheaper prices (within reason) mean lower quality, either in components themselves or the monitoring of them (You may get a bad batch or a good batch) The price HAS to come from somewhere. Higher quality/performance costs money.

Sometimes, price difference is nothing more than a name brand sticker afixed to the product. If the posted is willing to tell us what brand and model number he found, we might be able to give him some insite.
