    Does the servo make any grinding noises, and does the motor continuously run when the arm is out at its extremities? If so, then the gears are probably stripped, you can get replacements at any hobby...

    Would not recommend it, the 7955's are higher resolution and may not 'play along' so well with the 5955's.

    Would recommend something with at least 300oz of torque on 6V, especially if you're going to be using long aluminum arms.

    Hitec HS-7955TG is a good choice, but if you want to run lightweight lipo...

    Just check out the videos for the plane. Flights go for about 8 minutes from what they've told me, and there is TONS of power ;)

    RE: 3rd plane

    I think a 25 sized electric is a bit big as a third model. You might want to give a 3D foamy a go, hone your skills in a bit before you step into a larger model ;)

    RE: Servo mounting for 3D

    IMO, putting the servos about 2-3" behind the wing on most foamies yields a better moving foamy. More mass around the tail will allow it to whip around better in spins ;)

    Well, I'd try to go with 2:1 power to weight ratio. More power, higher speed, and insane vertical :D Looks clean too.
