Default Lightest receiver and servo, without accutators

I am working on a micro plane, and don't want to use accutators, because of the price, and what you get. I relize every gram is important, so I was wondering what the the lightest servo is for around 20.00. I was looking at a blue arrow (I think). I will further lighten it if I get it. I was also wondering what the lightest receiver is, that is around 30 or 40.00. The receiver must be able to run on a single li-po cell. Also what's the lightest esc? It doesn't need to handle but 1.5 or 2 amps.

Default RE: Lightest receiver and servo, without accutators

Well hello! I too have been working on micro flight. I found some 6 g servos on ebay for about $14 each, they advertised 4 g, but when I got them and put the control horns on it jumped to 6g. I bought two of em. I then got the DSP4-SC reciever and speed control combo. It weighed in at about 8.5 g with crystal, wires, and protective cover. I then purchased a plane literally named: "Airplane with charger" it had a 14" wingspan. I purchased lastly, an EDP-50 direct drive motor for $15 that produces 60 g of thrust. I gutted the electronics out of the "Airplane with charger", put in the stuff and it weighed in at about 86 g total. Oh yeah, I used two li poly 170 batteries that gave about 4 minutes of flight time. I had to use a carbon rod to support the wing because on the third flight I got going pretty fast and pulled up, the right wing snapped. Before that if flew great! Nasty crash, now i am building a mini 3d flyer with a huge 350c motor. At anyrate this is what I did. Hope it helps. Have fun!

I forgot to mention the EDP motor weighed in at 15g, and the lipolys weighed in at about 10 g for the two of em.
