Default Help with servo selection

Building a Wild Wiz 15. Instructions say they used HS 81 servos but it's an old kit and didn't know what options may be out there now. What do y'all think?

The HS-81 is a very solid performer.
A good alternative would be an Emax in that size.

I've had very good luck with Emax servos in the smaller sizes.

Still one of our best sellers in that category. If you want a more precise servo (since this is a faster airplane) with metal gears then you might look into the new D85MG. Slightly larger, but you can always factor that in when building the model.
