For $79.95 you can have Hitec 7954's which are rated for 7.4 volts, have 400 oz/in of torque and are very fast. They can also be used in Giant Scale if the next model after the 70" is giant scale. Chief Aircraft has them. My previous post has the link.

the 7955's are better than the 7954's IMHO, just because of the titanium gears. the 7955's will also take a 2s lipo direct with no bad side effects. that is from mike mayberry's posts, so i trust that is true!

Well in either case, the 7955's are only $10 more per servo than the 7985MGs and the 7954s. So, either one seems like a better deal than the 7985s.

well, an advantage to the 7985's is that you do not need to use a seperate rx pack. i know some guys that use the internal bec, and i am just using an external bec. but if you are using either the 7955's or the 7954's it would probably be a good choice to use a seperate rx pack. which if you already have a pack to use and dont mind keeping a second battery charged it would be the way to go anyway just incase something happens to your esc you would still have servo control. but hey, thats why this hobby is so great, so many options!!!

I decided to go for the gusto and bought 7950's. I got a good deal on them from aero-model since I bought the entire package and got a package discount. I'm running a TP 1800mah prolite RX battery without a regulator. The most I've flown in one day is 4 times and it still had 65% left, so I'm not worried about it.

I spent more money on the servos, but the cost of the battery was cheaper than an external BEC that would do the job. Weight wise the battery is a little heavier.

I think this is the most reliable setup as long as you don't forget to charge the RX battery.

Slick Repair Process

I started repairing my Slick tonight after receiving the repair parts from 3DHS; Thanks Tyler!

Last night I removed formers 1, 2 & 3. They were pretty well trashed and seared-off almost flush with the battery tray.

I then installed former 3, the landing gear plate, former 2 and former 1. Then I cleaned-up the sheeting and repaired the stringers and finally installed the bottom plate with cowl pin.

I didn't make it the LHS to get the carbon tubing, so I won't finishing this evening. All that is left is installing the carbon tubing, re-enforcing the landing gear plate and installing the sheeting. Hopefully tomorrow!

Thanks

Brian
