Re: servos for .40-.60

Well I'll be!!! Someone else in Tisdale flys!!

A good place to start for a 40 size plane is with a servo that has 40 oz inch of torque and will go 60 degrees in .2 seconds. Here's a good example. From there on you can spend as much as you want depending on the performance you want.

If you need a hand or just want to shoot the ---- give me a call.

I keep having the same mechanical problem. I've got a loose nut on the transmitter!

Re: servos for .40-.60

I agree with what George is saying, except, I believe the best bang for your buck right now for a standard servo would have to be the HS475BB by Hitec. Only a dollar/ servo more than the HS425BB with a lot more tourque to take you all the way up to 120 size! I like to stay with a Ball Bearing type servo as they will not slop out as quick as the Bushing type.



You can fly Hitec or use the other "low tech" stuff!!
