Default best mid range sport servo

I have not purchased any servos for 10 years and would like to know who makes the best low cost sport servo for .60 to 120 size planes now. being on social security I can not afford 50.00 a servo.

Hitec HS-645MG is still the industry standard for affordable, standard sized metal geared sport servos:

I'm in the same boat. I have used Power HD 1501 in several planes with good success, and have started using Solar D770's . I have found both reliable. You can get the Power HD from several sources, I use Value Hobby. Solars are available from Hobbypartz.

As a Futaba user, I've been using the S3010 with good results for sometime now.

I have (8) of the Solar 770, (6) 772, (4) 771 servos in use. I have one of the 772 in my SC truck for 3 years. Has been through more A arms and links than I care to think about. No servo saver and it has never stopped working. I have broken the stainless steel ball off the servo arm, broken the servo arm and it still keeps going. It is one tough as nails servo. I have (3) of the 770's as cyclic servos in my Blade 550x. a bunch of flights and they are still the same as the day I put them in. No slop, fast and center very well. The 771's are in a 90 sized 3D plane, Formula 3D, I have tossed it around for years and never worry about the servos. They center, hold up and work great.

Waiting for the for the D658's to come back into stock, I need (4) for a 25 sized plane and 2 more for the elevators on a 50 sized plane.
