Default Servos for the Magnum R

I am a fellow member of the brotherhood.

I have a question regarding the Magnum R. (I had the original before, LOVE IT)

the manual calls for HITEC servos, Ailerons is calling for a 76oz servo and the Elev. is calling for 106oz/torque.

do you think I can get away with 54oz/torque for the ailerons?

I can't remember what I had on my original but I dont remember them being this strong.

Thank you for the help.

Mike,

Bro:
Have not had a magnum, Q-500s and formulas used Hitec 225's with around 48 oz with no problems. Do have a clone of the magnum 50 but still in the box. I would give them what thay want on the elevtor, and the ailerons to be safe. ENJOY Bro 119

Thanks guys,

I figure I will go with a high torque on the elevator but the ailerons I think I will go with the 54oz. (save me some money)

Priestley- Even standard servos get around 60oz. on a 6V pack... Shouldn't be an issue, although I have used the Low Profile Hitec-77 ailerons servos and like them...
