Default Split elelvator control

Plane 50 cc Yak radio Futaba 8aup I am planning on using two Hi tech 5645's on the split elevator will the equalizer 2 be able to take care of this ? I am also going to be using 2 6 v2500 mah nimh's for the receiver with the bat share ? Sound like a good idea ? I am not goingto be doing very much 3d type flyingjustnot very good at that type of flying mostly imac kinda stuff.

Hi, Yes, the Equalizer II can handle the servos. 2 2500mAH packs is a bit much unless you need the weight. You should get 7-9 flights on two 1650mAH packs. The BatShare is a good idea though. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Okay so here is what I put in the Yak 50 cc I used the HD dsm120 servos which will run on 7.2 volts without regulation. All but the throttle servo which is only rated at 6 volts so I used the smart fly sport regulator to keep the voltages down to 6.2 off a 3000 mah lipo. I also used the equalizer 2 for the split elevators it works just great so easy to set up thanks Smart Fly. Now my question is this will the equalizer 2 handle the 7.2 volts if I decide to replace my throttle servo so I cn get full usage out of the 7.2 volts ?
