Default Servos for a 35% yak?

Do you think hitec 5645mg servos will be strong enough to handle
A 35% yak? I'm tryin to setup this one a little cheaper than my 35% extra 260
tmb rates these servos at 168 oz-in.

They will fly it, but why risk your airplane to a bunch of cheap under-powered (on a 35%er) servos. Get the HS=7955s, you will be happier in the long run that you did. The elevators and rudder would be way underpowered and the ailerons would be marginal.

I don't understand why you would want a cheap (Nitroplanes) 35% airplane loaded with cheap underpowered servos. Buy a descent airframe and descent servos.

I don't mean to but in but here I go. I have a Gold line Yak55 30% and I am putting a 7955 on the rudder and I was thinking about the rest of the plane getting the HS5645s not the throttle of course. My problem is I am a disabled vet and only make so much money per month. Can you tell what would work good on the rest of the plane please ? And won't break the bank I can buy two per month. I have the 7955 already. Thank you for any help.

If you are a sport flyer with 15-20 degrees of throw on your ailerons and elevators, they will work, but they are far from being the best servo for a 30% airframe and are probably a little underrated for the airframe.
If you are interested, send me a PM or email, I have some HS-5955s in excellent shape I would be willing to sell.

Buy once and get good servos!!!!!!!!! HS7955's are the way to go. The 56xx series don't center very well and you are not putting out enough torque. The gear train on the 7955's will last and wont develop slop. If you are trying to be cheap.....back down to smaller planes that you can afford!

As stated the 56xx series sometimes do not center precisely. Might want to look into the PowerHD line of servos, good value for their price point.
