Default Ultra Micro planes gear in the 250 size planes

Has anyone else wondered about the Ultra Micro planes gear being used in the 250 sized planes ?
With the 4 channel Ultra Micro F4U Corsair , and T-28 , Beast and others in the small ultra size , would the servos and receivers work in the 250 size planes to also make them light weight 4 channel planes , like the EFlite SE5a , Fokker DVII , Nieeuport 17 , or Electrifly Sopwith Pup or Tiger Moth ?
I know the motors of the ultras micros would be too small in power for the 250 size planes , but shouldn't the rest of the gear work out ?
Anyone tried any of these conversions , that I missed ?

Wondering out loud , thanks

Pretty sure the boards are meant to be powered by a 1S lipo only. You will need 2S to power your motor and I doubt those tiny servos could handle the stress that the larger control surfaces are going to put on them.

Some people have upgraded UM T-28s to 2S's, but I agree about the servos. I just don't think they're up to the task of larger control surfaces.

The UMX Beast uses a two cell battery , and you guys are proably right in that the sercos wouldn't be strong enough for the 250 size needs .
Thanks
