Default GP Super skybolt question

Just received my Tower Talk from Tower and noticed the GP Super Skybolt ARF it out and ready for my purchase. From the pic in the add, I noticed the wire that connects both the top and bottom ailerons together to move or be serviced my one servo. I'd like to be able to control them on separate servos thus using four servos total for the ailerons,,,,one for each surface, each wing. Has anyone completed this mod? How difficult would it be? Thanks,,,,

Check Towers web site. They won't be available until late May. I had a Goldberg Ultimate ( about the same size plane ) that only had servos in the bottom wings and regular servos at that. I flew it for 10 years and 1100 flights 0 problems. Four servos on a small plane like that is a waste of money and weight. IMHO

I have the Skybolt kit, you don't need to install 4 aileron servos, 2 is plenty.

You can just place two servos side by side one on each side of the center wing rib. I would make a servo mount for them with some plywood.

I agree that it is not needed, but am going to use twin aileron servos on my next super sportster. I am going to use hs 81's and keep them together.
