DL-series servos feature reliable 3-pole ferrite core motors - they're the workhorse of the servo industry

There comes a time when servos with BLS (brushless) motors make perfect sense - experience teaches you when.

10lbs of force, or 160oz-in, is enough to fly giant scale model - unheard of in mini-size servos - in coreless and BLS.
