It is not a binary choice; geared motors can drive a flipper pretty well (in my experience). You don't need to use a servo, which includes lots of gubbins that you don't really need and an inconvenient package (perhaps)
Robots: Betsie - RaspberryPi controlled flipper bot with gyro stablisation - too clever for her own good?
Stacie - tidy flipper; 4wd driven by hair bands
