Default Tail rotor servo

Does anyone know about faster servos than the HS-81 or the HS-56?

The 9650 Digital is outstanding. (Futaba)

I have a 450 XL with an HS-50 and a GY240 gyro (non-digital). Everything was great until the crash. I had to replace the servo and put an SE tail system on but since then there has been a lot of tail wag. If I turn the sensitivity down it won't hold the heading. Nothing seems to be hanging up. I can rotate with the stick on the transmitter. Is it a bad/slow servo or did I damage the gyro. Suggestions for a fix or replacement parts would be greatly appreciated.

I'm using the GY-401 and there is a lot of that tail wagging going on which is why I asked about the faster servo because a guy told me that it felt like the servo that was in it wasn't keeping up with the gyro. Also, would difefrent transmitters make a big difference in servo response? I know that it makes a difference in the car world, I was just wondering if that carried over to the airplane world.

I just added a 9650 to my 401 - made my life a lot easier.

i had alot of tail wage running with hs-56's, but before you go out and buy a $50 servo make sure your tail rotor control assembly isnt binding or to tight. i loosened my up a bit and had no problems at all.

I've had tail servos wag with me. Usually it meant the servo was about to fail but, not every situation. Better check your servo for binding or excessive play, just to be on the safe side.
