Default Yak 54 30% - What Futaba SERVOS ???

Hi,

Any ideas on what Futaba servos I should use for Ailerons and Elevators???

I seem to think that Brushless Programmable, metal gear would be the best route. But which servo??

Thanks for any help.

Have you looked at the BLS series of futaba? Thats what I'm trying next.
Heard alot of good. A bit spendy though.

The Futaba brushless servos are nice, but IMHO too spendy for small 3d planes in 50cc class.
I've used the Hitec 5645 digital servos in this class with good results. Hitec 5945 would be nice upgrade without overdoing it. Need more muscle for the rudder though. I've used the Futab 9156 or Hitec 5955/7955 for the rudder in this size. I just can't think of any Futaba servos in the 160-180 oz range well priced at 55-60 usd to compare to Hitec ones.
If you want to go first class and stick to Futaba servos, then can't go wrong with 9156 all around. My 2 cents.

The Futaba 9156 is my favorite servo right now. The 9157 is great too but overkill for most applications. The 9156 is also overkill for a 30% plane but it's nice having more servo than you need.
