My big question is will the MKS match the Futaba's?? Not sure! I'm not willing to endorse them yet, but they look promising.
I agree Trevor. Perhaps being of Japanese design/build they will be considerably better metal gears like Futaba.

I am willing to load the Big Slick full, see what Lorne says!

The benefit with the Futaba's is they're SBUS, so the less wires pretty much offsets the weight of the servos. The MKS will have to be reaaaaaaally good for me to switch away from Futaba, since they aren't SBUS. But I'm going into this with an open mind, LOL

Jack, the reason i tried them was the Heli guys flying with the big 700/800 goblins helis at are club are hammering on their servos!!! Trust me, they put far more abuse and out right cycles of wear and tear on their servos than any of us plane monkeys!

I been watching them closely at our club for the last year. All of them, all the competitive guys, are flying MKS!!! If the MKS777 is anything like the quality of their Heli servos, they are going to prove out just fine!

We had a good talk with Joe Smith about them in Toledo. He has been flying them for awhile now. He likes them.

But ya have to be careful you don't get Carpel Tunnel Syndrome!

At least you guys know that the left gimbal is for more than just throttle. I was at a club last year and 90% of the guys that fly there don't use the rudder!

LMAO!!!! My wrists are strong Brent

No dead-sticks in a hover yet this year - I've yet to forget to put gas in a plane in 2014 so far However I did put JetA1 in my 3DHS Edge last time out .. luckily I realized before starting the motor - drained and flushed the tank and the GP61 didn't know anything happened, LOL
