Default finally got me a giant scale

so im sitting here deployed to afganistan with my tax money in the bank, i thought dam i should get me a giant gasser..albeit its on the smaller side of giant scale. i bought an mx-s 35cc from chiefaircraft. i got the one thats green with checkered. i looked around on here for some servo suggestions but after fighting with the slow internet not properly loading some pages i figured i would just check out some planes that are equal in specs as the mx-s. i looked at some planes on towerhobbies and came to the conclussion that towerhobbies servos ts-70 will do the job at 6 volts. i also ordered a new radio to go with it a fut. 7caf, i think i should have gone with a 2.4 setup but i have nothing thats 2.4 and the radio will do me justice for all the other planes i have that are on fm. i plan on running an mld 35cc from cermark. heck i also bought an sr-71 propjet from texas rc and another aerobatic plane from valuehobby. i suppose i just had an itch to buy planes and now im really looking forward to getting back to georgia to fly.

if anyone has any suggestions for the mx-s or sr-71 please put you 4 cents worth in.

It may sound like a "canned" response, as the term has been used many, many times, but I "GENUINELY, THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE to this great country." When you great back and get your new plane trimmed out, the best I would like to hear from you, is that, your tires have worn out and that you'll have to replace them ! Make sure you include photo's here of your plane and the "worn out" tires. Say "hi" to your buds and thank them for me.

I too want to say my thanks to you and all the servicemen deployed. I am thankful to work in the defence industry and want you to know that it's the guys and gals in the field that come to my mind as I see equipment being shipped out of the factory.


As to your airplane, great choice! I would suggest however to take a second look at your engine and servo choices. If I was outfitting the same airplane I would be looking at the DLE 30 and some Hitec digitals.

whats the difference between the digital servos and the ts-70's? i keep hearing about digital servos but i apparently have had no education regarding them.

If you are looking at Tower Hobbies, then take a look at this servo, it is digital and and you probably would like the feel of how the plane flies a lot better.

I second the motion about the DLE 30. They are getting a real good reputation around my neck of the woods.
If you need a 72 mhz radio for your older equipment, you will find transmitters pretty cheap on the used market. I can't really see buying a new one. Once you fly on 2.4, not worrying about getting shot down by another flyer is worth it. I wish you the best of luck and hope you can get out of that Heckhole of a country very soon.
