I don't know.. I'd double-check the measured current.

I'm using them in the 72... for this size plane it's the servo to beat IMO. you can use futaba horns, they do also make their own oversize arms for 3D rates and they're great: washer either side to spread the load of the bolt and nut, and go play!

I'm thinking about putting some Savox in a 65 Vyper to replace the HD1501s.

I'm using the Align DS610 servos which are just rebranded Savox. They are strong and fast but just make sure you have a BEC that can handle high loads. These servos seem to pull more current than any other servo I've used.

ah, the washers... if you use the standard gear of the 71/72 planes, they have a bolt and a locking nut. You can overtighten and split the control arm. If you use washers, this spreads the load of the tightened nut across the surface of the control arm making it all that much stronger when in use (the force from the control surface trying to twist the bolt in the arm, etc). I split one of the arms by overtightening... washer stops the overtightening and makes the result stronger.

AHH, thanks. I do that anyway. I thought you meant to attach the arm to the servo.
