All( or at least most) servos should work, as long as it has the same type of plug you are good, the biggest problem would be current draw.

also it has to be 360 degree modifyable.

almost all servos are EXCEPT those servos with output shafts that are metal ( since u can't shave off the stopper tab)

micro servos are sometimes non-modifyable also. although i don't know why you would want to use micro servos.
