Default servos/to much torque??????

hi,
working on a set up for a sport jet and getting confused.

why can't i use high torque on all servos.?? is it not a good idea

to use a lot of torque, or more than is recomended? also can't i

use coreless,metal geared on all areas? seems like factory

recomendations are really close

as far as torque goes in many areas. How do they figure what

to put where>??????

thanx for any help you can offer, BILL

Using a servo with stronger than minimum specified torque rating is not a problem unless the servo is a physically larger size.

There isnt any issue with using a stronger servo, if anything its less wear & tear on the servo & gears, and more insurance the control surface will be adequately powered.

Only other issue is power. You will be using up your flight pack faster than necessary, but NiCads are cheap (but not fancy new batteries).
