    What servos is everybody using on the Sig 1/4 Scale Spacewalker II? (Futaba/Hitec type).

    Thanks

    1/4 Spacewalker Servos

    If you're asking what size servos should you be
    using, I can tell you that, in my Space Walker II, I use standard servos for the ailerons (JR) and
    1/4 scale servos (Big Daddy) for the rudder and
    elevator. I've been flying this aircraft with a
    Saito 1.50 for about six years with no problems.

    1/4 Spacewalker Servos

    I don't know what "Big Daddy" servos are. Do you have a Futaba, Hitec number. What is the torque rating?

    1/4 Spacewalker Servos

    The Big Daddy servos may no longer be available.

    Hitec has a 1/4 scale servo, with an advertised
    torque of 139/174 ounces. This Futaba compatible
    servo's Hitec part no. is 31700J and is known as
    the Hitec HS700-BB.

    Look under Hitec's site at: www.hitecrcd.com

    1/4 Spacewalker Servos

    Thanks Jerry, that's just what I needed. The price on the 700BB isn't too bad either.

    Standard servos work OK on the ailerons?. I assume one per aileron, not two?

    I'm putting a new Zenoah G26 gas in mine. About the same cu. in as yours, but guess it will pull a little harder being a 2 stroke.

    I'm going to bash the kit a little and make it look like my Spezio Tuholer homebuilt I built in the 60s. Picture attached.

    1/4 Spacewalker Servos

    Yes, standard servo's will work for the ailerons,
    one per aileron. However, the kit instructions
    recommend a servo with at least a torque of 60 oz.
    per inch. Again, Hitec has a standard servo, no.
    HS475HB, rated at 61/76 oz, Futaba compatible no.
    33475J.

    RE: 1/4 Spacewalker Servos

    George, I like you color sceme... do you have any other pics ?

    I have recently posted the following on this forum..

    I have the MAN plans for the Spezio TuHoler drawn by Cliff Tacie. Would anyone have construction articles that cover the plans. Plas call for a .60 engine. I am planning on a 25cc engine for it...

    Hightflight 1987 #4 had a article Review by Dick Garmhausen FS-37 but not sure if it was for these MAN plans I have.

    The Spezio Tuholer is also known as the Spezio Sport DAL 1.

    Floyd:

    I have lots of other pictures. I'll post some here.

    I also have the MAN plans for the Spezio (for sale if anyone is interested). I decided to kitbash the Spacewalker 2 instead.
    I had a Zenoah 23 in it to begin, not enough power. I now have a Moki 1.8 and it is plenty of power.

    Floyd:

    I'll post some pics along with this reply. I have a lot. If you want more, email me and I'll send them to you. gecooper@hotmail.com

    My cockpit is pretty basic, no seats, just a panel. I don't spend a lot of time in details.....they all disappear in the crash [&o].

    I usually fly it once or twice a season. Burns a lot of fuel with the big Moki engine, but flies much better than with the small Zenoah. It takes a lot of power to push all tha drag through the air.
