Default New to Smart Fly products, need advice on a system for my 50cc, 27% Pitts Python!

Hello, I've starting to build my Pitts and want to have a good power and redundancy in my radio setup. I'm new to using smart fly but have heard nothing but wonderful things about it and see many major competitors using it in there planes. I'm building it for sport and have no intentions of competing. The plane : 27% Kangke Pitts Python , Bi-plane. Radio is a Futaba 9c converted to 2.4 ghz FASST, with a R6008HS receiver. For servo's I'm using one Hitec HS-5645mg digital on each aileron totaling four, 2 on the right and 2 on the left wings, Two on the elevator, on right half and one left half, and one Hitech rudder tray servo HS-7956SHR. Engine will be a DLE-55RA with there electronic ignition. I also want to put an electronic cut off switch on it too. Would I need servo equalizers on the aileron servos right and left and elevator servos right and left or will a smart fly power system take care of my needs and if so which system. I have been trying to familiarize my self with your products. Also looking for battery redundancy and running 6 volt system should be adequate. Looking for ideas as to what "Smart-Fly" system to use!

Thanks for your time,

Joe

Been there, done that, still doing it-see pics. I also like and use Smart-Fly products, very well thought out. But keep it simple and only get what is needed, more makes no difference in this regard.

You might also consider moving this to a build forum and show what you are doing.
