Micro, sub-micro and especially powerful small servos are necessary for many electric powered and glider models. We need to tuck servos in to small spaces, sometimes in the flying surfaces themselves (like in the tailplane or fin). Mounting servos in the wing has become common-place - the servos need to be thin and also powerful, sometimes needing to operate large flaps. Here is a selection of good quality servos that I have been able to access:
   
Dymond D47 power - super micro 4.7g
   
Dymond D60 - sub-micro 9g
   
Hitec HS-55 - tiny 8g, good quality & price
   
Hitec HS-81 - standard micro servo

Hitec HS-82MG - metal gear version of HS-81
  
KST 145MG - high power standard 10mm thick servo, 30mm long - metal case, metal output arm - good for large glider fuselages.
  
  
Special Wing Servos
 
Hyperion DS13-TMB - ball race, digital 19.2g, 13mm thick, high-power, metal-gear wing servo

KST-X08 thin 8mm servo, light weight - replaces 245 (also available without any mounting lugs at all - called N series)

KST-X08H 8mm thin wing servo for smaller models - metal case, metal gears, side mount - replaces 245H

• KST-HS08 Servos - NEW, more powerful version of X08 available in side-mount (A version) and vertical mount (B version) - 8mm thick and 11g
  
• KST X10 Mini MG - new, improved wing servo - more power and HV - replaces 135MG
  
KST 125MG super high power 10mm wing servo for bigger models - ideal on flaps - discontinued - see X10 Large replacement below
  
• KST X10 Large - bigger wing servo for big models
  
   
• Servo Testers - check your servo operation
