HobbyKing DHC-2 Beaver 1353mm (ARF)
I'm not a balsa builder but have been flying lots of arf's over the years I have a lot more experience in helicopters.
I just finished reading the sticky on this site on all you need to know. This is all still in the box and I under stand that there will be a lot of trial and error and a steep learning curve.
Any advice is welcomed!
The DH Beaver is of course famous for its STOL capability, load capacity and general ruggedness and fans of the Beaver will be pleased to see this larger version of our popular 40" kit.
This nicely made ARF is a pleasure to build and features a removable wing, easy access magnetic battery hatch, large lightweight wheels, steerable tail wheel and so on. A choice of motor mounts come with the kit as does a very comprehnsive hardware kit. This model being a little bigger means of course it will cope with the wind just that little bit better but either size Beaver is perfect for those calm, relaxing days at the field.

I was going to some to use some HK Hextronik 9g servos but they are too small
So looks like it's going to be Hitec Servos for aileron, Rudder and Elevator

If you wanted to use the 9g servo's,couldn't you make up some plates from,say,1/16th ply,to fit over the existing hole?Just a thought.
On the other hand,maybe you need the slightly bigger servos on a plane this size.
I started to do just that and changed my mind, The 9g servos looked small when I started to fit them into the wings.
