I can only find SD 100s so far which are supposed to be the same as a D47, im not sure. but they seem slow compared to LSX110 and Hitec HS-5035HD, will it make much differance

Just checked out 'electricwingman' and he's out of stock for most of the usual servos...might be worth you emailing to see when they're likely to get them back in again.
If you're going to the trouble (and expense) of putting a Disney together....might as well put good servos in it   :)

SD100, D47 and LSX 110's are all the same and Dymond and Logic both do a higher speed version, with less torque. However Connor and I are both using the normal (slooooow) model and there more than upto the task. If you really feel they do need pepping up, you can always run them straight off 7.4V.

Just bought 4 HS-35's for another project and 2 of them were duff - and that's not the first time I've had that. Great servo, but if I were you I'd stear clear until Hitec get their QC together  ;)

I was warned off the micro hitec digis before due to lack of accuracy when centering. I went with the JR DS318's which are superb, though more expensive and a little heavier. To be honest for F3P schedules accuracy is more important than speed when it comes to servos, and of course lightness helps. For 3D and freestyling the quicker servos are more of a benefit in my opinion.
 
Some nice models on here, might even manage to get one put together for EIM!  :)

Hi Andy

Never been sure about HiTec.

I use these http://www.macgregor.co.uk/jrpropo/ES316.htm 

£19.99 on the Macgregor web site but may be lower price elsewhere. 

£16.99 at http://www.stevewebb.co.uk/index.php?pid=JRES316&area=Servo

http://www.stevewebb.co.uk/index.php?pid=SWLSX110&area=Servo £15.99.  Appears they do not have stock, sorry.

Hitec 5035's  :(


Fast and thats about it. Centering int all bad but I have had two fail just after install with the same fault and a third after half a dozen flights. For F3P the Dymond's are really hard to beat in whatever disguise you find them

Exactly the same setup I bought to go in my Disney one day soon; assuming I ever kill the Helix  :P


What is your flying weight with that little lot?

No idea about the weight, as i don't have any scales. Its not the lightest Disney compared to others I have picked up. I have gone for a bit of extra reinforcement here and there. I have also used a push rod on elevator instead of pull pull. The servos are very sweet and the Glavak and YGE combination is just awesome. Just wish I had the skills to do it justice in the air. Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday.
