Jwmflying Thank you, that's what I wanted to hear and what I had in mind.

Hobbyclub This was part of a larger order but I went back, put one in the cart and checked the shipping(7>21days I wasn't in a hurry) Totals up about $200>210 CDN

NZ7C The shipping cost and time makes it unreasonable to return them based on appearance only but thanks for your input.

Another question. The 4 gram servos I purchased for this bird have 0.8 kg/cm torque. Will this be enough?????????
As a comparison the D47's mentioned many times here, have about 1.4kg/cm

Thanks again
Kerry

No that won't be enough.

D47's are the minimal I would run on ailerons

Thanks but.
He won't ship to Canada.........??????????????

EDIT: Seems some people want a lower "declared" value, so I was not given the opportunity to purchase.
I wanted to say thanks for the straight answer but the thread was closed.

Actually these are good servos, metal gear, I bought 10 of them, very strong, I use them directly in the tail of Easy Glider pro on rudder and elevator and will use a pair in my Versus DLG wing I just got from hobby king. These are made by Vigor and sold outside of Hobby King also. I am going to buy more of these. Only downfall are thin and very short servo leads, can't have everything I guess. They are too tall for the fuse also, even if you cut off the 2 knobs on the bottom but perfect for wings.

Sorry to disagree but specs.(speed + torque) are identical, I didn't mention size but they are close.
The D47's were snapped up before I could explain that I would not dicker with the seller. I don't want to spend $100 plus shipping etc. just for servo's for this bird. It's my first DLG

Re Hobbyking: My DLG is from Hobbyking (it's a Topsky) I am at about $4>5000.worth of HK products and never a problem.

Thanks for your input

DDRUCK Thanks for your input also. I am undecided on these servos as some of the reveiws are not the best.

Yep good servos. I used them in 2 of my TS ships and no problems.

Especially for a first time DLGer. They will develop a bit of slop (all metal gear servos do) but for the price they can't be beat.

Thank you, I thought someone here had used them. I will probably put them in the wings

They are not near the quality of a D47 or the Power HD DSM44 servos. The HK servo has a huge dead band and poor centering, and should only be used for crude work, and they do not provide the numbers stated.

How about a digital, metal gear servo with a coreless motor for less money than the D47 or the HK servos?

These little servos rock in the Topsky and other DLGs.

Did I mention they are in stock, in the USA and we have FAST and affordable shipping on them, including international? If that is not enough, if you are not happy with them for any reason just return them for a refund.

Yeah, we like these servos that much!

You can't beat the price on these coreless MG servos, and Wayne from Aloft is very reputable so I would take the gamble. The only small concern I would have is metal gear wear, but you're not bound to see that for quite a while. The plane more than likely will age faster than those gears.

Just my $0.02





Edit: Just compared these specs to my similar sized Blue Arrow D05010MG's I have in my Alula Evo, and these have 3 times more torque!!! Wow!

Shipping to Australia is showing as $5.41, and typically takes about 1 week. So they would work out to about US $10.60 each. (Price is lower when you buy 4 at a time.)
