Brodie, I thought you were shooting photo's of young Gabriel, with your phone.
Lorne did a bunch of photo shots of Gabriel, the day before. Must be some of him today.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

To much pumping again. Lost another throttle servo. 3 in a year is concerning me. Yesterday a 5645 crapped out on the ground. What is everyone using for servos? Who is leaving the return spring on the carb?

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Proving that much like exhaust. Throttle servo's fail at the field.

Throttle return springs, I prefer to flip them loose or under to maintain tension on the shaft with little, or no torsional strength.
Servo's, good quality, strong. Typically the same servo's as on each surface. I learned that from a very successful senior modeller.
I would not hesitate to use a 7955 on throttle.
Hope this helps.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Yep don't cheap out on the throttle servo. It's good to leave the return spring on. I normall just loosen it off a bit and have just a bit of tension there
