PS, just picked up a dx6i, was thinking of trying an orange 6ch receiver but not sure what servo to apply as I need three for my gentle lady conversion. Thanks. Scott
Yup, just about any servo will work from the small servos to the giant scale servos. They all have the same connector. One good brand of servos is the Hitec line. They are reasonable in cost, and they work well with the proper application.
They run in cost from $8 or so up to over $200 each, depending on if you are flying a slow sailplane, or a $$$$ 200 MPH wet turbine model. For your Gentle Lady conversion, methinks a standard servo about $12 or $15 will work just fine. I flew an electrified Gentle Lady years ago, had a lot of very good flights with it. After a few flights on that Gentle Lady, I put spoilers on the wing. It was very difficult to stop it when trying to land.
