Default What servos for 1/4 scale?

I am currently building an Aeroworks Edge 540 25%. I am going to use JR electronics for control. This is my first quarter scale. With my engine set up and a good calculated guess at the electronics, it should come in at about 11 3/4 lbs.

I will have to use one servo per aileron, one per elevator half, and one for rudder. I hope to be able to learn 3D with this airplane.

Does anyone have any suggestions for the type of servos to use. I want to keep price down, but if needed I will upgrade to insure performance and longevity.

It really depends on how much you are willing to pay. I'm not into 3D myself, but with the throws necessary you will need good authority. I'm finishing up a Midwest G-202 with Hitec HS-77BB (~$24) on the ailerons and elevator halves and a HS-645MG (~$38) on the rudder. With a 6V battery pack, the HS-77BB will put out 77in-oz and the HS-645MG 133in-oz. Hitec give you the most bang for the buck, although some servos don't center as well as others (most notably the HS-605BB).

If you can afford more, Hitec makes digital versions of their HS-625MG and HG-645MG (HS-5625MG and HS-5645MG respectively). National Hobby sells them for $47...

Hope this helps!
