Modding Kyosho Piper Cherokee Minium AD

Can I switch the stock kyosho receiver with a ar6400 and use the stock aileron servo with the ar6400 ? And would a hobbyzone champ motor be able to pull the plane in the air ?

A champ motor has 30-40% more thrust than the Kyosho hypermotor, but won't fit in the gearbox (8.4mm). You also need a bigger 5" prop. The J-3 motor should fit perfect and provides more power than the hyper motor.

You can put a connector on the KS20 servo and it will work with the AR6400, or you can use 2 AS2000's and the plane will still be a 1/2 gram lighter than stock, because the AR6400 is 2.1g less than the Kyosho AD brick.

It should fly great with a J-3 motor/prop.

Termite had one for sale a while back. I think he may have converted it to DSM2... he may have sold it, though.

Thank you so much, do I need a special connector for the servo or can I use the one that connects to the stock receiver ?

The factory servos were glitch-tastic, so it will glitch and lock up as much as it did with the factory RX. A 2g rotary servo from HK or 2 AS2000's would work out much better in the long run.

Glenn2626 has connectors that plug into an AR6400

Do you know something cheap a hobby shop would have because 2 as2000's are like 40 $ or is it a good idea to use the same aileron set up as a pz t-28 has ?

This 2g servo sould be a good substitute for the Kysosho KS20 and it + a 6400 will still be 1.5g lighter than the kyosho set-up

HK 2g servo

The AR6400 will mix 2 servos into 1 channel. This is how the UM 4 site works.

There two micro servos mixed together to 1 channel so I can let my brother use it on his DX5e.

no.

If you use the servo I posted, a DX5 will work fine. The AR6400 uses a single Aileron servo. You can make it use 2 as an option, but as delivered it uses only 1.

The AR6400L as delivered uses 2 Aileron servos, but it can be switched to use only 1.

It doesn't matter what TX you are using.

Easy fix. Just switch the brick to have independent Channel 2/6 instead of dual elevator.
