Sheldon, unfortunately I have not. Our Florida winters are not cold at all but fairly windy with lots of cross winds. Haven't taken out the Rebel Max in over a month and it's definitely not Mephisto...

As to servo arms I used a 1.5 inch arm for rudder and ailerons, the flaps will need a very short one to fit. Best to look into the short...

Stay away from these!!! Had purchased a whole set for the first Mephisto I built a while ago. Great specs on paper, but what they don't tell you is that either their over-temp or over-current...

Skunkwrks your local hobby shop should have plenty different sizes of brass tubing. I didn't purchase those bushings, just cut small pieces off a longer piece of tubing with a dremel.

@ Aerosheldon

The Savox 2290 and 2292 and definitely good servos. The stronger 2290 should be used on flaps & rudder, the quicker 2292 for the rest. You might also look at the Bluebird BLS-H51B...

I don't want to sound arrogant, but I had the same "this configuration is super easy" attitude as well, until I lost my Mephisto last week due to what was most likely a configuration error. I have...

Doesn't need dual servos on the elevators, but you'll need 40-50kg servos with a full alloy case then. Same applies to the flaps. Don't use any servos that have an overload protection! Had two very...
