HS-80 or equivalent servos work fine for the tail. ...
The spoilers don't need much, some GWS Pico servos or equivalent are fine. The big limitation there is finding something thin enough to fit in the wing, you have a depth of about 7/16" to work in. ...
Thanks for this info Don. I'm basically looking for a "Sport" setup, but I'd like to be able to try some ALES type competitions if I feel I get good enough. But another look for some yet lighter motors maybe in order.

I never thought to on check the depth requirement for the spoiler servos. Thanks for the warning...

And pd1 and Dimeflyer... Welcome to the thread!


Growing the fleet!
