Kid, I think you may be right with item number two. no choice but to take it out for inspection and possible service (second time around)
thank you, -r

Raul, sorry to hear you having problems. But once you get the bugs figured out, that Viper will rock!

Hi guys,

Where do you get these in the US. I have a Mega 16/25/2 on 6S that needs a home.

What kind of speed would I be able to get with this setup?

Thanks in advance.

I dont know the speed, but Its the fastest Pylon seen so far in a video for me

I think he is near 2000 watts, and the speed is probably way over 200MPH in a dive.

Yup that thing is what made me ask, Id ideally get the whole package from stratair, just to save on shipping and too make it simpler.

Im thinking the 16-35-1 on the 5.2 kontronic box with 4S looks like a shweet setup.

My feild has some big ass trees at the each end of the strip, which means steep approaches. Crow would make it so much easier.

The D60 is a popular choice amongst the F5D fraternity. Sold as SD150 in the UK.

I have used them for years and still use them now. There are those that rave about the Hyperion servos but they are more expensive and I have no evidence they are better just more expensive.

You use so little movement that speed is not that important, what is important is the slop in the servo and its ability to hold neutral as the servo arm is very very short. D60/SD150 are good in that area and tick all the boxes hence the majority using them.
