Well, Team MKS are working hard to get new servos to market for pilots to use. Among the new servos are the DS92, the DS1009, the DS6125E, and the DS65K. One thing to point out . . . . the DS6125E is a wing servo for gliders. Taking a look at the specs the DS6125E has virtually the same as the venerable DS95 with the DS6215E having slightly better torque, and both the 95 and the 6125E the same size. Check out the details thus far released for the DS92, the DS1009, and the DS6125E.

Instead of an all aluminum case, the DS92 uses an upper and lower plastic case with an aluminum middle. Although utilizing part plastic, the specs are similar to the DS95, but should be less expensive than the DS95.
