Quote from: Mpx on September 06, 2010, 14:58:32 pm... 8411s .... as standard now they come with plastic not metal gears.
Quote from: Alex48 on September 06, 2010, 18:58:58 pmwhat about a 579 good solid servo although not digital.
Quote from: Pat Barnes on September 06, 2010, 17:11:43 pm...and the feedback (albeit limited...) I've seen is positive.
Quote from: PDR on September 06, 2010, 22:41:03 pmservo feedback should of course be negative...

Quote from: Alex48 on September 07, 2010, 12:01:22 pmlol, I was sent this lot the other week from a customer, all was good until I inspected the contents and found a blue box among the white....
Quote from: PDR on September 08, 2010, 23:36:52 pm1. Can you fit a longer steering pin, and grind a taper onto it to improve the chances of engagement?2. [assuming you'll be driving this with a proper Tx] Could you set up a logic switch that removes the rudder (and trim) input from a nosewheel steering servo mixer when the gearswitch widget = "up"? Then you could have another input (probably a fixed numeric value) to keep the pin aligned regardless of any nosewheel trim that is found to be necessary.PDR
Quote from: STORM on September 09, 2010, 08:29:53 amHarry, the simple solution would be to taper the servo arm into a v shape, that way even if the leg drops off centre it will still be guided into the arm.
Quote from: Mpx on September 06, 2010, 10:42:17 amThe tailplanes will probably work fine with plastic gear standard servo but in case of flutter I think a metal geared, ball raced, digi will be best. Each tailplane has its own servo so it doesn't need to be super powerful. It must be from a brand with a history of reliability. I am considering 3 types of servo that fit that, they are:Multiplex Tiger MG digi 4 about £52Futaba S3050 about £34Spektrum S6020 about £27Thoughts or suggestions anyone? I include the Spektrum since afaik it is made by JR? and it is a good cost saving. But does it have any history yet, good or bad? Please don't suggest Hitec, I won't touch them, no exceptions, no ifs or buts, I won't even let them in the house! I am curious about Hyperion and Savox but am not aware of them being around for long enough under their own brand name, in use in valuable models, to trust them yet on a primary flight control.
