ProTek RC 170SBL Black Label High Speed Brushless Servo.
Brushless servo technology has improved by leaps and bounds. Finally, brushless servos can deliver holding power, speed and precision that can compete with a coreless servo. Combine that with the superior efficiency and lifespan of a brushless motor and you have a servo that hits all the marks, with the performance and quality required for a pro level build.
A black anodized aluminum case with aluminum and white accents give this servo a stealthy look that sets it apart from the rest. The aluminum upper case provides bomb proof durability and the heat sink center case offers efficient heat dissipation and helps to reduce weight. The lead wire is detachable, allowing you to easily custom tailor the servo lead to your application, and the package includes both 135mm and 285mm length servo leads. Plus, a full selection of servo arms and mounting hardware are included making installation easy.
NOTE: If you experience glitching or poor performance while using a Futaba transmitter, you must turn off BLS mode. BLS mode is only compatible with Futaba BLS type servos.

I will slowly be replacing all my other servos with this one. Highly recommend!
It has taken a good amount of beating but it is still going very strong.
The finish on this is phenomenal. For about the same price, you're getting a brushless high speed servo that can cost you twice as much when you buy other brands.
Give it a try!
Everything you want in a servo!
I contacted amain via live chat and they overnighted me another servo (with a return label for the older one), which was great.
....except that the replacement ALSO came in a marred case, with the servo itself having several scratches on the polished area in the upper body. I am not going to bother anymore as the servo seems to work fine (for now...), but I can't help but wonder if amain has been putting returns back on the shelf with no quality control. Certainly doesn't feel like I got my $159 worth in any case. If the quality control on the things that make up your first impression is this bad, it makes you wonder, what else have they possibly skimped on inside, don't you think?
They suggest this servo with the kit, but don't mention this.
