Default Hitec HS225 or HS85MG enough for Sundowner 50 ailerons?

Has anyone tried these servo's on ailerons in a speed plane? I am looking for a servo smaller than fullsize for the Sundowner 50 ailerons. Or if anybody has another suggestion on another servo for the job. I run 5 cell packs, and a std is quite the tight fit, plus the ailerons are quite small. I am powering it with the new Evoulution .60NX and am trying to keep it very light.

I love the HS225 MG. I use them on my Warbird racers for ailerons. Never had one fail. I wouldn't use 85's because of the two screw mount. Too hard to get a solid mount, plus they are weaker.

Blessings, Terry

I had heard that the 225's don't like fully charged 5 cell packs! Have you incountered that?

225 is a decent servo for its size/weight/cost. The only issues I've seen/heard about the servo is a centering issue when using one servo to drive both ailerons (not normally seen under 130 mph), and issues when used in 3d planes with large amounts of surface deflection.

For what your using it for, they should work just fine. I 2nd the opinion on the 85's not sure they would hold up on ailerons, but I use them for throttle all the time.

I've used them on 5 cell packs without issue.
