I'm using these for ailerons and flaps:

and these for rudder and elevators:

No blow back that I can see. And for the record I am not very nice to it.

Do you think the Promodeler DS305CLHV will be good all around. I have 4 for ailerons and flaps. Just wondering if they will be good for Rudder and elevators.

I would have purchased the 305's all around but I found a good deal on some other servos. I have a 305 for the throttle servo. The recommended servos are 270 oz/in I believe anyways.

Have any of you had any issues with the strut support tab with the threaded insert for the wings on the underside of the plane.
After about 25 flights I've had with mine, yesterday when I got done flying I noticed my left wing strut was loose and there was a little crack in the balsa where its formed rounded for the belly right where the strut mounts.
I took it home and flipped it over and the mounting tab was loose . I pressed it back and carefully used some thick CA to glue it back in place but I'm wondering how long that will last.
No hard flights at all.. no hard landings. No idea why that happened.
I'd like to have a better fix but where its located is a pain in the butt..
Anyone else have a problem in this area

My issue was where the strut mounts to the wing. Haven't had issues on the fuse. I think part of the problem might be the thumb screws. Just can't get them tight enough for the struts.

No thumb screws here, we used regular bolts with sealing washers.

After about 13 flights, one of my strut blind nuts in the wing has given up. Been flying STOL lately so just left the struts off. I have been using the allen bolts, not the thumb screws.

Great video nick. Beautiful place to fly.
Loved the hover and the short landings
