Hey Herb,

That's great info on the servo torque required! I always knew I was going overkill with these servos on these planes.

Regarding the struts... I'm pretty sure the HK struts originated from ProDesign... but many vendors are selling them now.

The other one's shown from Sonic Electric are the RC Lander struts made for their new Mig 17. A buddy of mine has one and it weighs in the 7-8lb range and the struts seem plenty strong. Of course the only kicker is that the nose strut is shorter due to the wing being midway up the fuse on the Mig 17.

I have yet to find decent struts for 90mm EDFs.... but I'm really leaning towards trying the EPF Titans with the new trailing link struts!
