Default FP-5NLP and FP-S130 Questions

Hi there,
I have 2 questions.

1. I have a FP-5NLP PCM 5 ch TX, I lost its receiver, can any pcm receiver be used with this TX or not?

2- What is the torque for S130, Futaba's website states 55 oz, but does not say whether at 4.8v or 6v, please State the torque at both voltges.

Thankyou

Hi 747-RCU,

1.) Unfortunatley, the 5NLP will only work with the R115IP receiver which was discontinued quite a few years ago. You may be able to find someone in a swap forum who has one of these on the channel you are looking for. We do only have a limited amount of parts left for these receivers though if you found one that needed servcing.

2.) The S130's rating of 55.60 oz per inch will be at 4.8V, for 6V ratings a rule of thumb is that you can expect an increase of of torque and speed of approximately 15%.

I hope you find this information helpful. You can also reach our Futaba support technical team at 217-398-8970, or via fax at 217-398-7721.

Sincerely,
Krysta

Krysta, thanks for the reply. I have about 9 New S130 servos. They are never used, but were bought about 15 years ago. Are they safe to be used? or I should not use them or what. They all work fine, but just concerned as to even though they are new, but still manufactured 15 years ago.
Thanks

The S-130's are fine, but they do have a weak gear train, so if you are using them in a giant scale airplane, I would avoid using them on the elevators or rudder. I did have a 130 on the rudder of my Byron Christen Eagle which weighed 21 lbs. It worked flawlessly from 1986 to 1998, then the plane sheared the two right side wings, but all those years that little 130 did it's job and I did nothing but wring out this airplane year after year. That same 130 is now in my F-18 for one of the 2 flap servos. So go ahead and use them.

Thanks Frankflyboy1, that is very good to know. I intend to use them on 60 size planes, normal sport flying.

You should have no problems in a .60 size airplane. One note of caution, AVOID moving the control surfaces by hand, the servos don't move easily and you can break the gears.

Good luck
Frank
