Agreed, my Eco-16 flew with the HS-85's for a bit until it got cannibalized. They have developed some horrible slop though . I'm actually thinking of going again with the Futaba S3102's, as with my Eco-8. I'd rather have the extra torque, especially when I start flying again with the longer blades. The trade-off is lower speed.

Here's my old setup Gadget (highly NOT recommended... hehe):
> Kontronik FUN600-15 with 15t pinion
> Kontronik 3SLH 30-10-32
> 12-cell 2600mAh NiMH pack
> Stock Eco-16 woodies (545mm)
> MS tail blades
> HS-85 servos for cyclic
> GY401 and HS-81 servo

Very underpowered, although it flew around fine. This was a good floater setup and, although sluggish, it felt pretty stable in the air. Here's the only video I have of this setup:

My new setup should be much more lively. We'll see. Will post it here once I'm done with it.
