Default Midget Mustang and DS821 is this OK?

Here is my modded Midget Mustang that is getting close to being finished. I would be really happy if I can get about 110 mph in level flight. The main concern is the DS821's with there carbonite gear trains! Has anyone used these in a speed application?

That is the reason the servo's are not in there.[X(] I made the mounts thinking of individual servo's to avoid the Y pushrod, but have not committed to it yet. The only way I see a Y rod working decent is with supports to keep the slop down.

Yes, if you make a guide for the y rod say half way down the fuse they work pretty well.
