Selecting a throttle servo

Guys, I'm trying to refit an older Carden Extra 330. The airplane is likely near 15 years old, but well built. No idea who built it, or how many folks have owned it over the years. I am installing a new set of servos. I've used Savox HV servos, but have not yet bought one to use on the throttle. I will need it to be HV, but not 400-500 in-oz of torque? What is the current thinking of what constitutes a good throttle servo that can run on 7.4 volts in a 40% airplane?

Thanks,
Larry

larry, there are countless servos that will work just fine. I have used Spektrum 6150s in numerous 35 and 40% ers. $40.

If Savox, the 1267 is good. Really, any Savox that is HV capable will be fine.

+1 ANY Savox HV digital will be fine. That Carden doesn't even need 400oz on the Rudder mostly likely... let alone throttle.


Really, anything over 40oz is probably more than enough on throttle. probably even less than that...
