Default Vagenknecht Discus 2cx

Hello there,

Does anyone know of a build forum for the Vagenknecht ventus 2cx 4.8 metre scale glider? I'd just like to know what servos were used etc.

From their website:

"For usual flying and basic aerobatics it is possible to use standard servos of 3.1 – 3.5 kg strength or digital servos, such as Graupner DS 361. For aggressive aerobatic flying it is more appropriate to choose servos of 5.5 kg strength, such as HITEC 605. Landing gear requires stronger servos, like HITEC 75bb. The length of the push rod for landing gear servo lever should be 17 – 17.5mm long, measured from the centre position of the servo."
