My little list was a tongue in cheek joke I was not having a pop....... The HS225 MG are 4KG torque and on the elevator you have 2 of them.... Steves flys fine with these servo's..... It just makes me smile how much some people always want to over do things.... Offton having presumed better things causes problems and very offton the plane flys no better.... The thing that always brings a smile to my face is those who want to put a 120 pumper four stroke in a hanger 9 60 size warbird...... when they fly lovely on the designed Saito 100

No offence intended just a joke

Yes I agree with Dennis...why over do things all the the time when you have just gone out and bought a cheap and easy aircraft, just keep it easy.
Yes the ready made holes in the tail section are ready cut to fit the smaller servo, perfectly adiquete torque especially when you have two for the elevator. Steve's flys fine with no supprises at all with that size of servo, so there's your benchmark!

hi Noahb
Shot some more video footage of my falcon 120 yesterday including vioce over on instilation and flight.
This was then given too Big Plumbs for upload too the site.
Should be ready in the next couple off days.
The falcon has just had its 20th flight thats 25liters of pure fun and still shows no signs of any weakness.touch wood, good as gold.
were now flying off a grass runway and she standing up very well to the conditions.
This plane is going to be a real winner.and at 199.pounds in the uk is incredable value for money.
The wren 54 at 14pounds of thrust is perfect match for this model.Iam well inpressed with the slow speed handling off the model as well as the top speed.Which should be fast enough for most pilots.
Kind regards Steve

Thanks for that jets2.

It's a combination of plane/turbine that I quite fancy. What did your all-up dry weight turn out to be and how much fuel were you carrying?

Regards,
Eric

Hi jets 2
Great vid of your falcon, welcome to the falcon jet club.
This will make a great turbine trainer,the fuel burn on 1500cc tank will give over 10 minuets?
Kind regards wingart.
Ps now had over 20 flights with the 54 powerd version.
