Second the Hitec HS65MG if you can afford it.
If your budget is real tight you can put on the Hitec HS65HG with the Karbonite gears and upgrade the gear set to metal later.
The metal gears for the HS65 are about $10 a set.

Third for the HS 65's. Whether you do the metal or the karbonite gears you can not go wrong with these servos...very nice speed and durability. I have them in both my TRex 450 and my Gazaur Mars 480.

I use the HS-65MG's on both of my TREX's. They are pretty much the standard. However, both Futaba and JR now have digital metal gear servos for a 450 class Heli as well.

i like my JR DS285 servos for cyclic. they have a solid feel to them. i have been very pleased with they're performance. i am running with a HS81MG on my tail though, and found it to be better than the jr ds3500g i was using on my 450 SA.

One more for hs-65 I have the Hb ones wish I would have went the metal gears as I have stripped the karbonite a few times now. Only in a crash though they are fine for just about any type of flying. If buying new I would also look at the new Hs-5065 which are the Digital version of a hs-65

You do know you can replace the Karbonite gears with metal replacements when you strip them?
