    If you get a servo mount like emp or something they are made higher to accommodate a larger servo. A servo upgrade is always a nice step up. Just make sure it's supported nicely and has the volts it needs so you can use it's extra torque.

    I'm still using the stock servo, but with the Voltage Hobbies mount. Thinking about upgrading the servo soon. Not sure to what yet.

    I was just looking at those Eco servos. They have some nice specs. Whenever my stock one goes out I'll upgrade. So far, it's still going strong.
