Hi, I am flying  my AD 1/9 scale Rafale with an upgraded motor ( Wren Jubilee ) however one
of my wing servos has gone 'jittery' in the up position, I am using a Futaba PCM 139 receiver on 41 mhz on 4.8 volts, I am looking for replacements wing servos, which are currently Futaba S 9402's which are 4.8 volt metal gear 9 kg servos ( probably a bit overkill ) I have been looking for replacements, S9206, S 9452, Bls 252 and Bls 253, will the Bls ( brushless ) what are your suggestions , and will the Bls servos work properly on my old analogue receiver ?,
and any other suggestions ?,
thanks Paul.

Well it's 4 years on and I am still fling it with my old setup,  I changed the servo gears in the wings to get rid of the play, yesterday in windy conditions it Porpoised (I am not sore if this is the right term )in flight, from around 70 klm/h onwards getting worse, even in a high speed banked turn, there was a tiny bit of play in the rudder servo so a new one was fitted, I did fiddle about with the canards angle of attack but to no avail, any ideas ?.

Rafale is a French aeroplane, so any time it is flying into harms way it will start shaking and trying to turn around to run away...

So that's it, maybe a British flag on it would do the job ?. :uk:

No, but an Angela Merkel in the cockpit should fix things!
