Default Will These Servos Work On This Plane?

I was wondering if the servo below:

Would work on this plane below:

I didn't know if they would handle the load.


Thanks,

Jose (aka Bullseye)

Short answer: No
The plane calls for 'standard' servos.

Servos are a bit small but they are known to be rugged. Torque and speed are there but not sure if the servo itself can hold up. Personnaly I would be tempted to try it, I am not the guy that flies wide open all the time. At least one on each aileron though.

The metal geared versions would work fine.

What engine are you putting on the plane? I would be hesitant at best to use those servos, and would go with the Hitec 225 over the smaller 81 series, especially if you are looking at large surface throws and violent aerobatics.

I will be using the Saito 40a to keep the weight down. I guess I will use the HS-81 for the throttle only.
