    You could always try sweet talking me into loaning you my Ron Young Conquest with venturi. Might want a bit more wing though. And earplugs!

    Then, bolt a Conquest to the nose of the TD .15 model and you're done. Oh wait.. you need to do a Sure Start dart too (No cylinder swapping, that's specifically prohibited in the rule book)

    I think you are mixing units.

    The HK servos are 0.2kg, whichis 0.2kg-cm, not 0.2kg-in. That converts to 2.78 oz-in.

    The Tactic are 0.17kg-cm, or 2.35 oz-in.

    They are not that far apart.
