well, ailerons on F5D:s dont "normally" suffer from flutter, look at +500km/h Swist that Henke flyes, NO flutter, cheap Hyp 09 servos , (remember, an F5D should also explode at +220mph, hehe)......and there are a lot examples of having Dymond d60 in wings of F5D:s = no flutter...

For me the titanium hitec servos are overkill... thats my opinion...

Even if I dont agree a normal good servo with nylons will break in a F5D ship, OK, bigger = better, thats why I started this thread , trying to fit GOOD sloopfree 12mm heigh servos in my Viper, just to be 200% sure ...

saving like 100 dollars and even get better servos, the cost is making custom servocovers, and maybee -1mph cost in speed due to the extra drag , but I can live with that...
