"Lets Make A Deal", I'll trade you for whats under car cover #1. Wheres Monty Hall?? Nice Cessna, I'd say any servo in the 50in.oz. range would be plenty. Good luck.

It's amazing what can follow one home these days.... but if it followed you home, keep it and look after it....

Sure, I'm flying standard servos on my Stinson L-5 108" w/s Fox 2.4 engine, 25lbs. unless he's going to 3D a Cessna 172, the flight controls are hardly ever going to move violently enough to warrant high torque servos, so why waste $$ on them. If you use the same servo for rudder and nose wheel, then yes, go high torque there, but most modelers run a seperate servo just for steering, so yes, 50in.oz. is plenty.
