Yea but I think servo's on heli's get a lot more vibration than on an airplane, or am I wrong here?

I agree that the 85's have more longevity than the 81's... I still wouldn't use them for control surfaces on the Burrito.

I was loosing the HS-81s on the cyclic after almost every crash, thats what killed them, not the vibration... Never had another problem after switching to the HS-85MG+

Like Paul said, probably shouldn't use them on a burrito (And I won't). However, I'd imagine they would be ok on the taco, and MUCH better choice than the HS-85MG+

Paul, didn't you use 81's on your taco?

Question, I never had a servo strip, what happends when this occurs, do you still have enough control over the plane to land in safely?

by the way, the only drawback to my burrito is it is hard to get the glow ignitor on the cylinder, as it hits the wing due to the rear angled glow plug.
DOH! I hate that.

I still used HS 81mg's on my Taco.... I like the 85's better, but I just never fit them into a taco.. I've got a set of 85's in a Mini 3d that will come out soon...

Are those 81's you use in the taco nylon or MG? Have you ever stripped one in flight?

MG, but I've used the nylon geared 81's too.... Yes I've stripped one in flight... Always seams like the rudder or th aileron servo takes a dump... Usually there is some warning.. controls get mushy... I've never crashed because of a servo failure... Knock on wood....

I don't have anywhere near the experience of most folks who have already made recommendations on this issue ... so keep the quality of the source in mind when considering my recommendation

I have a combination of Hitec 325s and 635s on the control surfaces of my Burrito. These have the karbonite gears and are faster than the 425s. The gears should be much more resistant to stripping than the nylon gear servos and are lighter than comparable MG servos.

Hey Fred, why do you say to "be sure to use rudder". I read about a guy who is such an accomplished pilot he can torque roll or should I say tork roll without his rudder. If I read it on RCU it must be true.

I tried not using it... but that's ok, the airplane was repairable... have been using it the wrong way on inverted harriers lately... might figure it out by nashville...
