I actually took the power gear off my Scout to get it in the air. While it does fly it pretty well, it's not near as peppy as the Scout. The Kellett is a little heavier and has considerably more drag. I used higher torque servos for the head per Joe's recommendation. You could probably use smaller servos but I liked how positive the controls felt, especially with the added weight of the floats.
