Jimmy makes a good point, I missed that in your original post, I had the hitec HS-5065MG's in my 450X and they were ok. Most FBL controllers really need digital servos, so the HS-65MG's probably won't do. I believe the HS-5065MG's are only about $6 more per servo so you might see if you can exchange them.

Thank you for your replies. Just want to set the record straight on this. I have not installed the hitec servos. The ones currently on it are align ds410 m on the cyclic. As i said one went bad and i could not find a replacement, only a rebuild kit, so i decided to replace them all. Before i went to put the new hitecs in i plugged in the batt and thats when i noticed the gyro quit on me. Im planning on ordering the same next gen tarot fbls gyro. About 52 bucks on ebay. Also when i bought the hitec servos i didnt even think about whether they were analog or digital. I researched the tarot zyx s2 and it says it works with both types of servos. I realize analog servos are slower and thats fine by me. I can only fly basic maneuvers. I doubt i will ever fly 3d unless i had an instructor. That being said i will have to learn to program the new gyro when i get it. I have been flying helis for about 8 years now but got distracted by quadcopters. Years later i got back in to helis and its totally changed. Flybarless!! I bought this from this classified forum and the gyro was programmed by the previous owner so all i had to do was set up my radio. So i will post back when i get my new gyro. Im sure i will have lots of questions. Thanks again !
