I have had a few servos burn up over the of them was a 100$ Hitec digital. It was on the throttle of a 100cc and for no good reason, it started smoking while i had the rx powered up and setting up the linkages on the other surfaces. It wasn't stalled out or being over stressed in any way. It happens.

I think I'll go Nitro again. BIG birds impress me (Sesame Street must have affected me as a child), so I'd love a 90 size, but common sense kicks in and I'll probably stick with 50 size.

1. They fit perfectly in my Escape without having to fold the back seats.
2. Easier on the pocket book. Especially where I'm mid renovation in my house.

Re: Newb nitro flight

I just received a PM from JimmyP.... He has highlighted one of my mistakes. I had a 6.6V LiFe on my heli, and Futaba doesn't reccommend 6V... Don't I feel stupid. Doesn't mean that's what brought teh heli down...but I'm sure it didn't help with the post crash damage.
