While I keep flying this bird, I bought a replacement airframe so I can begin building its replacement. I am going to use HS82mg servos for the rudder and elevator, HS55s for flaps, a 50 amp phoenix lite esc, and a pz 300 prop. I am going to stay with a 3s system, so I might just go with the stock motor. Does anybody have any recommendations for a motor and (premium) ailerons servos?
Once, I stripped one of my stock alieron servos on landing, (uncommanded gear retraction due to a shoddy connector) and just replaced both with HS-65MGs. It's probably overkill for a stock P-47, (plus Extra prop, flaps, and retracts) but they work perfectly and I don't have to worry about it.
Just my $0.02,
