Quite honestly Bill,

BVM's recommendations are spot on, but I guess they're not helpful if you fly anything but JR. You might send a PM to Paul Bageman (RCU - BAGS) if you need Futaba servo advice.

I used Futaba 9450 servos on the ailerons, elevators, rudder and speed brake, I cant remember the exact ones I used on the flaps but I do remember the were high torque non digitals. I found it easyer to use the recomended servo on the nose wheel steering because of the size.
I recon the Balsa Bandit is without doubt the best sport I have ever flown and I wish I stilll had it.

enjoy you plane

If you are trying to substitute another brand of serovs into the Bandit take JR recommendations that BVM has and look up the specs for them on Horizon's website. Then substitute the equivalent, or better servo from whatever manufacturer that you plan on using.
