Hi, I have been into gas planes for a couple years know. I know how to fly but I would like to improve my skills using an electric plane. I was thining of getting a GWS beaver (gws1030) and the GWS naro flight pack (GWS 2045) for my Hitec focus 4 radio. From what I understand this set up would work. Can you please tell me if I am right or if I am wrong.

Thanks

Jesse

That'll work fine, though you could save just a little weight by getting a flightpack with GWS Pico BB servos instead of the Naro.

Cheers, Phil

Thanks, Yes the laser 4 replaced the focus 4 a few years ago. My radio is just a basic entry level one. But I think it will work fine. I am also confused with the servo's there are the mini, micro, feather, naro, pico could you please tell me the difference? Thanks.

Those are basically marketing terms used by the various companies to describe the size of their servos. GWS, for example, uses the terms "Pico" and "Naro" (Asianized Nano) to describe their two smallest servos. If you know your science, you'd know that pico and nano are prefixes in the metric system, like milli and centi (e.g. millimeter and centimeter). A picometer is smaller than a nanometer, hence a Pico servo is smaller than a Naro.

The only way to know what terms mean is to go to the manufacturer's website and look them up. There is no standard naming convention for servo sizes. For example, can you tell that a Hitec HS-50 is comparable to a GWS Pico by looking at their model names/numbers? Nope. You need to look up their statistics on their respective manufacturers' websites.
