Default DS811 vs. 531 Premium

Well my flip 3d has arrived....and i have a brand new JR flight pack with 517 servos...but after looking at the control surfaces (huge) i am not sure if these will be a good idea, on the rudder mainly.....i am considering buying either the DS811 digitals or the 531 premiums...the cost difference isn't much...but i have never messed with digitals....what would the advantage be? lower dead band is the biggest benifit i can see from the specs. What about holding power? any input would be appreciated....

If cost difference is a non-issue, I'd go with the digitals. I only have 2 JR digital servos so far but you can't beat them for centering, resolution and holding power. They eat a little more battery but with all of the lighter NiMH packs available, that becomes a non-issue as well.
