QUESTION: Servo Replacement for Tricopter Yaw Mech

I broke my yaw servo in a crash - and burnt it while fixing it. Now I'm upset as the servo was the most expensive part on the tricopter and it's not even in stock. So I wonder if there is a cheaper and better replacement for it, one that I can trust.

I'm going to make an alternative Direct Drive system - with something that can break away so it doesn't strip the servo in a crash.

Suggest your favorite MG servos, not necessarily digital, but preferably under $10.

Thanks for the suggestions! I'm going to get a pair of the Turnigy MG90S. When they are in stock!

I also think I have to rebuild my yaw mechanism to protect the servo more. I like Eric Monroe's (shadow74) design.

For now, my friend might be able to send me a standard-size servo - yeah, really big. I hope I don't wreck that one. I'll have to put the battery waaay forward too.
