The KST DS1509MG offers a wide voltage range of 4.8 - 7.4 Volt and is therefore universally applicable due to the low profile construction.

What about Power HD? They have the lf-20kg thats like $20 with an aluminum middle case and decent looking gear train. I realize its a brushed motor, but it looks to be a decent servo for the money. Lots of online places sell them too.
