Can stock ESC handle four digital servos?

Does anyone have experience with running digital servos on the stock ESC? I'm wondering if it can handle three Align DS410s and one DS420. (Guess where those came from. )

<Later> Well the label says 20A/3A and a 3A Castle BEC will power those four servos with no problem, but I'm not sure it's wise to trust the specs on a $9 ESC... Chance it or no?

<later still> Dead thread, looks like... Just for the record, the setup worked on a short, sub-freezing test flight.

It flew, it lived!

What fun, hand launch as I don't have a smooth field to fly from. School boy error left the prerotator on for the entire flight only realised that when I landed and the blades did not slow. I notice it says to put it on for landing anyway ;-) Is that to keep head speed up or create some stiffness when sat on the ground. I was very worried about it rolling over in the 10 knot or so breeze out there but it sat planted so pleased with that.

I like the looks of the Super G. Appears to use the same blades and head assembly as the Auto G. Seems like I could just barely make out that it has an elevator like the Auto G.
Was kind of hoping that pitch was controlled from the rotor head but not a big deal to me. Will most likely buy one and hope that Hobby King keeps coming out with PNP auto gyros.

Make your own blades ,,,it isn't very hard especially for flat bottom autogyro blades. Do a search and see videos. It is rather simple if you know how. Knowledge is power!!
