    Tiny planes and tiny servos

    I just bought a big handful of little servos. They weigh 2.5 grams. I couldn't find any servos lighter than that. Are they around? We are building several of Dave's WWl babies from Aero-Werkes. They are neat kits that take me back to my youth and stick and tissue building days. I can't wait to fly the Neiuport 12 that has a 22+ inch span. Give one a try and see if you can still build like it was 50 years ago. Thanks, Dave

    There is quite a few servos which weight less than 2.5 grams but they are better with electric power than IC because of vibration destroying the gear train! But for sedate flying(R/C assist)of vintage scale planes they might be OK for rudder/elevator control, ailerons&throttle are not necessary and just add weight!
    HK has the excellent 1.7 gram servo which come with 1.25mm Molex connectors which fit directly many receivers:

    The only 2.5 grams servos I use are BlueBird&FlyDream which are fine for electric but I wouldn't trust them to last very long even with a Cox TD .010 for power!
