The HS-422 &HS-425BB have both been around for a good while and are well proven.
( As in your previous thread same discussion used HS-422 all round = Thr, Ail x 2, Elev &Rud, in same setup)
The S3004 is not recommended for any model in which there is any vibration, especially Heli
for which Futaba still recommend the old S-148. (other suchreferences also online)

The Futaba servo S3004 has been a very reliable option in my .40 to .60 size aircraft. For larer planes I use the S3010 ,S3051 or S9072SB.

What's the application?
