Well, you had asked about a 3D flying setup, not sport flying.

As for nylon vs karbonite vs metal gear... nylon/karbonite is fine for most applications. The servo will stall out before it strips it's gears. However, MG hold up better to knocking control surfaces in the car, garage, etc...

You know what they say ... buy cheap buy twice. The listed servos would be better suited for a 40 size trainer than a 60 size sport / 3D plane.

Re: 3D help

At the very least get something with metal gears. The plastic gears WILL NOT last for any length of time and you'll crash your plane, guaranteed.

I know those servos are cheap, and you're looking to save a few bucks, but servos are not the place to skimp on that much. Find a low cost metal gear servo. Even the standard metal gear Hobby City Turnigy servos would be better than the plastic geared ones you want to try.

Seriously, I wouldn't even try it.

Then why bother starting the thread? Sounds like you already made up your mind before the thread was started. If I were you, I would listen to the INFORMED opinions here. IMHO, you are best off to put good metal gear 90oz + plus servos in the plane and be done with it. That way, you can fly 3D until you are blue in the face and you won't have to worry about a servo being inadequate. But to each his own.
