Nice. How are you flying and taking a video at the same time? That's very nice hands free video work.

great video
I was wondering what 5g servo's you used?
I am looking at getting a similar setup (2s 7.4 volt lipo)
but a lot of the 5g servos i see are rated 4-6 volts,
just wondering if they also go ok on 7.4v.
Good flying. o

Default Servos Used

I went with the stock Hobby King HXT500 5gram servos

They work perfect for this plane (the manual says that the Ailerons should be
9gram servos) but if you watch the video the plane fly perfect with the 5 gram servos.

Default Setup

Amazing, the plane fly's great using very small packs (300-500mah 2 cell packs are great on this plane) I keep them under 500mah just to keep the weight down.
