Servos can make or break an airplane both literally and performance wise. There are plenty of low cost high power servos available that will fly the airplane reliably but will the airplane fly up to your expectations with low cost servos? Centering is a big requirement in my book. I have found that most low cost options don't center as well as I would like. Holding power is also something that a good servo needs to have as well as good power off center. I've learned the hard way that when it come to aerobatic models, the airplane simply will not meet my expectations unless I install a set of digital servos. If budget is a concern look at some of the KST digital servos, IMO they offer the biggest bang for the buck. Savox and MKS are great servos but at a higher price point. JR and Futaba are great servos but also the most expensive. At the end of the day you are the one that needs to determine what you expect out of your airplane, do you want accurate point rolls, snap rolls that stop where you want?
