I bought this - I tried 4 different servos for my HK450 with a G401B (Fake Gy 401 servo). Nothing kept the tail before. But with this servo and the gyro the tail is amazing. Better than my SEV2 with Futaba 9254 and a real GY401. Keeps the tail ROCK solid. Buying more!"

Great tail servo for my Helicommand 3D, holds much better than my old Futaba s3114. Made the same experience with my GY401, the servo works wit DS mode on!!

What can I say other than this servo rocks!
It's in my HK450 and I have given it full punch outs with a 700w motor and the tail holds perfectly, no other servo I have tried with the same gyro has even come close to holding with the 700w motor.
It's noisy but thats because of metal gears, no more noisy than others I have tried.
Really strong and suprisingly low amps, with my HXT900's and this servo I draw 1.4amps from the BEC under load.
This is a very good tail servo. I use it with my telebee gyro. Note. The telebee gyro is the same exact item as the Align gyro. Align just rebranded it under their own name. When you combine this gyro with the MKS DS 480 you have a winner. During a hard turn the servo doesnt go out. It holds the copter straight. I use to use the Turnigy 9g HXT900 but that does not hold the tail straight. When I replaced it with the MKS DS480, It felt like I was using a Futaba 9254. I think the MKS is a clone of the JR servo. It even says propo on the box? Dont know what that means but JR uses the same lingo. The screw that holds the horn in is not a standard screw. I think it might be a M2.5 or something. I lost mine and had to look around for short replacement screw. That is tough. You might want to buy a couple servos as replacement parts or buy M2.5 screws from HK just in case. They are very cheap and you might just buy them for the price but I would highly suggest you buy a bunch so when you get in a crash you can just replace them. I would not suggest buying too many though. Maybe buying a whole new servo would be cheaper than buying parts from an aftermarket store. When buying this part, keep in mind weight. Shipping price for just this part can add up. So if you do buy this part make sure it is part of a larger order. In general the HK450 is a good copter but once you start buying replacement parts the price of the copter goes up to the price of a say a copterx. Makes you wonder. But i

3/28/2009 I am very pleased with the DS480 servo. I am using it on my HK450 with the Telebee Gryo. The servo is very quick and the metal gears make it strong. It has survived a couple of tail hits and is still going strong.
