What would be the best servo to use for a beetle flipper?

Well you won't get a flipper by using a servo, but I'm guessing you realise that. Jamie's beetle used this:

He did hack it for 360 rotation though because it wouldn't self right with his design otherwise. It was able to pick up and body slam Eggbeater really well, its quite a nice little servo. I'd like to see if it could handle higher voltages to give it a little more speed.
Oh, and a guy on the FRA forums is really quite impressed with your featherweight, don't know if you saw.

Cheers. Haz.
