I dont know much about gliders so I'm not sure how big a battery I need to run 2 servos. Anyone know how many mah's most people use?

In one of the pics above you can see a wood piece that is a servo tray. That fits snuggly into the nose of the plane making a platform that the battery can be strapped to. They include zip ties for this purpose.

Pico's sound good and I might do the same. I just ordered a Berg5 receiver for it that I'll swap with another plane.

The control rods that came with it were just white plastic "wires" with thin outer blue plastic tubes. The white plastic wires have a metal wire taped to the end to connect to the servos. I would go for this if there was a big weight difference but I suspect just using thin piano wires will be stiffer and lighter.

I'm looking forward to trying it out! Maybe next weekend if the weather cooperates....
