I've replaced all of my servos at least once, some twice on my VA. Well over a thousand flights but they are all hard flights. Full throttle 90% of the time and crazy stick movements. Friends can't believe that the wings have survived my out of control flying. I've been flying for about 9 years and can't remember any plane that is as much fun and enjoyable as the VA.

I am having a real jittery rudder on my Sukhoi and my VA has an elevator that gets the jitters when I crack the throttle wide. I am going to replace the servos but with which ones, the planes do not have a lot of flights on them, like 50 maximum for sukhoi and probably 15 for the VA, will this servo work and is it going to be any better than then original?

Any one else have a good replacement they could recommend for me to use?

Are u wide open throttle in 3D mode on the VA? If so, that's normal.

If I open the throttle up from stopped sitting on the ground holding the pane the elevator flutters, not in 3D mode, I have not had any luck using it on the VA, it will only pitch up to vertical or wildly pitch down in that mode, not flyable at all. I have balanced the prop and it makes no difference. The rudder will occasionally just flip back and forth when it is sitting on the ground. The Sukhoi rudder does it all the time it is on the ground sitting still, prop not turning, like before take off and after landing.

I have no understanding of servo descriptions, if the ones in the link are right or not or if some one could explain how to get the right ones for the plane I would appreciate it. I would rather purchase good quality ones that will last as opposed to replacing them with the same ones that came on the airplane, as I feel they did not last long enough.
