Default Stab servo suggestion

Hi Don,
I'm looking for a good servo to place in the stabs of my new pattern model.

I came accross to a JR DS 3201, its specs are the following: 4.0 Kg.cm, 0.22s / 60 deg (at 4.8V). It seems a good servo, right power, low weight and dimensions: the problem is that it is a bit slow, compared for example with Futaba 9650 (0.14 s / 60 deg @ 4.8V).

In your opinion, it can be good or I better consider a faster servo? Is elevator speed important for pattern flying?

Thank you very much for your answer!

I've been flying the 9411's in the stab with excellent results. These servos have very good centering and power. I do have some of the smaller JR servos but could not get them in the plane before the NATS, however others have used them with good results as I understand.

Be sure to use control arms that provide a reasonable arm/horn length. This is so you keep the ATV around 100percent (vs. 130 percent for example).

How do you connect them? Two separate channels or by a Y-cord?

Thank you.

There is a program in the 10X. Put elevator in the right side surface servo, Aux 3 in the left elevator surface servo. Then go into dual elevator menu in wing setup and activate. Its just that simple with the 10X. Best of luck,

Don
