Default Laser Arrow servos?

Hi-
What type of Servos do I need for this plane? I'm using a 46 fx to start. But may upgrade. I'll be using 4 servos for the control surfaces.
Thanks
Mum

4..... interesting... most i could think of using is 3, and thats if you go for seperated elevator aileron..
most here use 3003's fine, some went for next up, either way the Laser Arrow is too slow to worry about servos.
Smallest Laser here has a MVVS 49 and full pipe, unless you inculde the 3/4 version with a piped 36, but thats only got SD200 mini servos, 2kg rated.
As always, use the best you can afford.. so that'll be a tired old 148 for me then

Default SERVOS

ive got a laser arrow with a os .45 fsr and full pipe and i used two standard 148 servos on the elevons, they are not comparably very fast planes but excell at slow speeds. mine was about as fast as you could get an arrow to go, and i never had a problem with blowback on the surfaces, mind you if you have the spare money, you might aswell have something a bit more powerful.
the laser arrow is very draggy, if you want something fast, get a dust.heres mine(engine changed to a standard sc 40 now)
