    SERVO SETUP ON 1/5 SCALE PICA P51



    I will soon be starting on my old Pica 1/5 scale P51. I was wondering if anyone else here has the same plane or similar. I would like to know what you used for servos and how you have them set up. Dual elevator, dual ailerons, ect, as well as what strength of servos. Also wondering what you are using for power. I want to start ordering what I need, but not sure where to start. Thanks in advance, Ron.

    Ron, here's what I did on my 50cc, 20 pound Macchi 202. Each elevator and aileon has its own 50oz servo. Dan

    RE: SERVO SETUP ON 1/5 SCALE PICA P51

    Ron,
    I rebuilt one back in 2004, it had originally a Super Tiger 4500 which I replaced by a 3W70. My plane came out at 30lbs and flew great, it is now retired since the wing has around 30 signatures from the 352nd pilots and ground crew.
    I use good digital servos in most of my warbirds, in the Pica Mustang I had a combination of JR and Futaba. I have similar sized airplanes and like to use the Hitec 5645MG or better.
    Good luck on the project You'll like the plane!
