Default Servo question for the GP Shoestring owners

I would please like to know what servos you all are using in this bird.

I was thinking of HS-645s for the tail feathers, 422 for throttle and 545's for the ailerons.

Any thoughts on this please.

Thanks
Blackie

well that will work but its way overkill. I had hitec 425's on everything and a 422 on the throttle and it flew great for the full season I owned it. It had a 91fx in it and it easily took the speed. The control surfaces just arent all that big on the shoe.

I used a 91 FX also and standard Futaba servos, one on each elevator, one on the rudder, one on each ail, one on the throttle. Nice plane.

I just used standard Airtonics 94102 servos and only one on the elevator. Flies just great and is in it's third season.
