Squid, I'm glad to see somebody doing an updated Bug. My first choice for servos is the Dymond D-4.7 . Good centering, strong gear train for it's size, 4.7 grams, reasonably fast, and most important, lives happily on 2 LiPos. Just too much good to ignore. Even if they cost a gram or so extra, you get it back with simplified battery requirements. I use 2x120mah LiPos as used in a Blade Heli. I am using the D-4.7s in my rocket boosted Bug project.
