Default what is the best servo for my application

i am getting a 3d plane and am looking for a cheap, light, fast standard servo. torque is not really an issue. I just need it to push a throtle cable from as far as a foot back around probably a couple bends. the only other thing is i need it to be rather accurate as the throttle setting is very sensitive on my ys.

An Airtronics 94102 servo goes for about $14.00 and has good cetering and is a good all around servo. I was using one on my helicopters for throttle and it preformed well for over two years.

Any servo will work for throttle. Unless you have an absurdly tense throttle linkage.

i am looking for one that is kinda fast sense i want to make the most out of my ys 110's instant throttle response. it also needs reallay good centering but i am afraind to go digital due to the cost and a digital throttle servo doesn't make a lot of sense. digitals are great on everything else though.
