I have two planes outfitted with pro modeler servos and a third set just waiting to go into a yak.They are the brushless ones. They are working well. I also have the brushed servos for throttle control. Had one brushed servo fail. I can't really blame it. The throttle setup was bad and I burnt it out. II got them because I had dealt with John at audacity models years ago on helicopters and I consider him a stand up guy.

Did you order a 28x jack or do you have it already?
I have been thinking about ordering a little JR from JR ammerica for stock but I have not seen much interest lately

John, KS95's just like Jack would use (but installed by Doug)

Servo's, Futaba 9157 just like Jack would use (but installed by Doug).

144 flights. Very happy with everything installed. Works very well.

GP176 in the middle and 3W170and MVVS175 on the upper end, but not by much either.

So my guess is that if Dale's balances well, they all will.

I can't wait to see the 42% Pilot Edge go!! I bet it'll be an impressive set-up!!
Trevor, thank-you for thinking of me. A true compliment when the top shelf modellers make any comments on my set-up's or flying.

Thank-you Doug for the reply. As I ripped off to work this morning. To hell with it tomorrow. Time to kiss the dog, and pet the wife.

I flew it that way for 100+ flights. Then moved the batteries back. Only the length of themselves (3").

Not yet Lorne, I don't think they're available yet, but perhaps soon.

My interest is high but will have to wait too see.
