Thanks for your answer.
I know its not much but will the speed make a difference in flight?

I think you will be good...I have flown the Extra 260 with some off name cheapies servos and worked fine...not as fast as something like the HS-65 or Waypoints servos.

If you are really a hard core 3D flyer then you might notice the speed difference. Otherwise, they should work fine.

Im not quite finished with it yet.I got side tracked on a few house projects.Was hoping to maiden it this weekend, but forecast is for rain and high wind.I also did not want to rush building it.When i got my Yak profile, i rushed and made a few mistakes.Worst mistake of all i did not glue the hinges in good enough.The right aileron pulled out in flight,i was able to land with only a small amount of damage.Paul recomended the Turnigy 2217 16 motor instead of the Scorpion 2215 18.Great motor for the price,lots of power,i put it on my Yak just to try it.Hopefully the weather will be better next week.Im sure i will love it, i let you know after i get it in the air.
