Default RE: Questions regarding Futaba Servos

it is not about quality as the 3004's are a good servo...it comes to needs of torque and speed.....

the 3004's might actually work, but you would at least need to run them on 6V
I like running higher torque servos... something like 5645's (from Hitec....I actually like their servos more) on 60-90 size aircraft...
no chance of blowback, helps in the prevention of flutter (assuming linkages are done correctly, etc.)

so for me... I look at torque and speed numbers....
something in the 80 to 100 oz range would probably be fine...but more is always better (IMHO)
