While it will probably work fine, one needs to insure that the linkage is very smooth with this low power servo. 32oz torque is not very much. Personally I would go with something a little more beefy.

It will work fine so long as it is free to move.

IMO it's too small. Even though my links are very free on both my gasser boat and gasser heli I'm pretty sure neither would make the grade with that small of a servo.

I use the hitec hs85mg servo on my throttle in my smaller gas planes. I have not had a problem with this set up at all. The hs85mg has a bit more power than the hs81 plus ball bearings and metal gears. There is a hs85bb and a hs85mg both have ball bearings and about 42oz of torque but the metal gear is about $7.00 more than the bb and not as much worry as far as gear striping.
Hope this helps
Fred
