You could use standard servos. Standards w/ bb's would be better, but you don't need anything exotic.

Try some Hitec HS-475HB's. Has a BB top, Carbonite gears, 61 oz of tourque. Have a standard case size and cost around 22 bucks. I have 2 for the 60 size advanced trainer I am building. You may want to give them a try. Just a little more gumption than standard servo's.

It was re-listed just last week. I was the only bidder.....If it looks as good in person as it does in the pictures I'm going to be one Happy camper. I'm picking it up tomorrow.

The Hitechs phread59 recommended are a great start. If you have the bucks spring for good coreless BB (Hitechs are hard to beat in quality for $$). The coreless are much much smoother & more precise---like BUTTAH!

Mine had all Futaba 148 until one went bad in the wing. I replaced the ones in the wing with Hitec 605s. YS120 in mine. You will absolutely love this plane. I have plenty of Super sportsters, 2-120, 1-60, twin 40, and the biplane.

Good luck,


JC
