I am using Futaba 9202 coreless servos for elevator and rudder and some old S148's for ailerons. I bet the DLE 30 will make this plane hover at 1/2 power. Double check when you mount the engine. I believe they modified the firewall to add the down thrust but did not change the instructions. The instructions call for mounting the engine 4mm above the crank shaft cross marks and putting in 2 degrees of down thrust, however, it looks like that is not necessary. I will know more after I can get my bird to the field. The weather lately has not cooperated.
