Shoot me a PM if you wanna come out some time. It would be nice to have a 3D plane guy out.

I'm gonna try my best to make it out there one of these days soon. I like flying in the wind sometimes, but when there are 30mph gust I leave the planes on the ground!

I put the 4020's in a 100cc beater. It is a heavy plane that really stresses servos. I want to see how well they hold up on it before puting them in a new plane.
That should do the trick, if they hold up good there then a 50cc'er should be no problem. let us know how it goes.

Flew it this AM with absolute success. This old plane had the big 1/4 scale servos in it. It was like night and day difference. It has great rudder authority and holds a knife edge loop with ease. I give them an A+ so far

That's great news! sounds like they should be a good contender in the servo market. Plenty power to move big surfaces around with ease... Next is to see how long they last. I can't wait to get mine in the air, the wind still has not let up here, right now it's gusting at 32mph!

Put 5 of the XQ 4020D's in an electric EF 78" on a 6V NiMH battery and have about 15 flights on it mostly trimming for IMAC and they seem like a good servo to me so far. Haven't felt any hunting around neutral. They are very fast and powerful.
I also let Chris H fly the plane yesterday without telling him what the servo's were and I heard no bad comments when I asked him how the plane was flying. He flew mostly pattern, snappy stuff and low knife edges rather than his usual on the deck 3D.
So far I am pretty pleased with these servos.

Cool, Yep, the servos are very good for the money. Good centering, quick, and strong, the titanium gears are a plus also. One thing I do want to say about the spline is that it is kinda tight. When putting on some servo arms it takes a little pressure to get them on.

I was reading somewhere that some one thinks they took regular gears and coated them with titanium... maybe thats the way they do it? don't know, but they seem strong and should hold up for a long time.

Chuchuf, keep us updated on how your servos are holding up.

I plan on getting one of the HV versions pretty soon to see if there is a noticable difference in the servos components, torque, and speed. You can get them for a 50cc bird for like 35-40 bucks.

T3beatz,

Well! I will give the XQ-3015M a shot. Throttle only for now. You know I am a skeptic bro! but, I will give it a whirl. This XQ will replace a Hitec 5645.

Well I ordered a full set of XQ- POwer servos for a 50cc YAK, will be running 6v via a regulator I'll post after I get hold of them and install - I have been running power HD servos without any real issues - they are however showing signs of wear and I might just refurb them and install in my 30cc YAK.

So I'll try the XQ power servos and let you know how they perform.

So far so good. All I have done is run a servo tester on it and, installed it in my new 71" 3DHS Slick. I am installing all the electronics now.

Look at post #94. Been flying on my EF 78" Extra for 2 weeks or so on all surfaces.

Yep you are correct I forgot about that... nice how are they holding up so far?

good points? bad points?

There was a guy in the other thread, that said he has been running the 3020D's in a 40%er for over a year. (the 4020's are the upgraded version).

Just to let you all know, Yakman76's 4020D that he had on the tail of his 100cc plane finally gave out. I don't know how many flights he had on it, or what exactly went bad on his.
don't get too discouraged, remember this was a smaller servo on a 100cc plane (one on the tail by itself).

Yakman did you figure out what went out yet?

Ohh yeah, I didn't post this in this thread but if you don't know already SDS has the High Voltage line up of the XQ power servos, the price is very good also...

I'm very pleased with them so far.
They seem to have a small (and I mean really small) amount of slop.
They are fast, powerful and center very well.
The only main disadvantage these have over Hitec digitals are the lack of programming. Honestly I don't know why ALL manufacturers of digitals don't have a programmer.
Time will tell.
SDShobby were a pleasure to deal with. I paid the extra $5 for expedited shipping and the servos were to my door in 6 days. After they are shipped SDS sends an email with tracking which still didn't show up after 3 days, so I emailed SDS. The next morning I had a reply from SDS telling me the order was in NY.
I had also ordered 21AWG extensions (their prices were great!!) as well as the 1.5" arms and 3.5" offset rudder arms from SDS.
