I haven't had any issues other than that. Center good and torque seems good.

Speaking of Savox servos I was out flying my Sukhoi yesterday. It is the last giant scale plane I have that still has Hitec servos in it. I made 6 flights yesterday and used 6200 mah of battery. I think a lot of the high drain is from all the shaking going on, my rudder and the ailerons are friggin shaking all the time. I have a bunch of 2270's sitting nib so I am going to switch out all them Hitec 7950's and see how much the drain drops.

Got to see Ben Batts in action again today. Have not seen him since the XFC. Forgot my Camera bag at home. Wouldn't you know it. The greatest show an original I have never seen before happened at our annual Tim Mills Memorial Air show. Ben was Flying with Andy P. "Don't know how to spell his last name." He is a Gaui sponsored pilot and he is very good with helies. It was an impromptu part of the show that those two came up with and never practiced before. It was a dual flight with a 100cc Extra and a 700 gas heli. They did the mandatory rolling loop around the Pirouetting heli. and vice a versa. But then we noticed that they traded Transmitters in mid flight and Andy was flying the plane and Ben was flying the heli. Wen the paying crowd approximately 200 spectators realized what happened They came to life with cheers and vigorous clapping. We know how to have fun in Indiana.

Unfortunately I don't have a picture of Ben with Andy. I do have a picture of Ben and Matt who also competed in the XFC. It's with my Cell phone. Oh well.

If you would see what Ben puts those Savox servos through, you would be impressed just like I am.

I was out flying my Sukhoi with the new servos today. I cut the battery drain per flight in half. It now has 2270's on everything but the rudder which has two 2230's. It does nice tight KE loops. No worry about any blow back with that kind of servo power on it.

Tom wish I was there. Sounds like a great day.

Flying with the brushless servos today I found them almost silent. Very impressed with them to say the least.

Wish you could have been here 2.

I'm going to change the servos out in my Dalton over the winter. I'll Talk to Brian first but I'm thinking about going with your setup.

I might have to give them a try in my new plane.

You will love them Tom, they are really quick and powerful. Gives you a real connected feel. Plus the low drain over my previous 7950's. Less than half the current drain.
