Default RE: whats the difference from regular and digital servos

In my opinion digital servos cost 3 to 5 times more than regular and unless you are into
competition and are a precision pilot you can't tell the difference and its not worth the difference
in price.
Digital servos move is small digital steps and recieve full battery voltage even to move just
one step. They hold thier position better because they use full voltage to do so. Digital servos
require larger on-board batteries as they use more power just trying to keep centered. They
make a buzzing sound when sitting idle.

Regular (or analog) servos use smaller voltages to move and hold thier position. They don't
center quite as tightly as digital servos do.

That, in simple terms is the difference....in my opinion.
