Waving (not jittering) servos are usually the result of a poor or corroded connection. The old Hobbico extensions were notorious for causing this problem. Here's an old 2006 thread about it....

There are no rules about 3D vs "Normal" flying at my club. Instead we just talk to each other. If a 3D plane is over the runway, and a "normal" flyer wants to land or make a pass down the runway,...

I'm not an expert on electric power systems for 3D planes. You will need to go to the probro site to find those guys. But since your electric setup came out of a 41" 3DHS Extra, it should work even...

The 14SG isn't in the same class at all, and the 18MZ is ridiculously expensive.
