Could the power to the servos be wired separately to the battery or to the BEC if used?
After all the only thing the servo needs from the Rx is the signal, a low power square wave.

UNGN,

Is that fact or theory? Have you tried using the "old" linear servos with the AS3X system?

(Not doubting you... just haven't heard of any hands-on experience)

Horizon has said this and I believe it.

The Servos move like CRAZY in an AS3X plane.

If normal duty cycle of a servo is 10%, these are 95%. On a Windy day, you hear the servos over the motor noise and the wind...zing zing zing zing zing zing and you are just flying straight and level.

The heat sink on a AS3X brick will burn your skin if you hold it in you hand with the battery plugged in and shake it for 10 seconds.

Some one has put a head lock gryo inbetween the ailerons for the micro P-51. He said that it flew great in the wind (there was a youtube video somewhere, do a search) Its just that not many ultra micro mustangs are flying now. All the hype is now on the new UMXs.

so what aileron servo would you use?

maybe just use whatever servos are in the UMX Spitfire?

...Or the UMX Beast 3D (which is actually in stock).

The 2030's.

The Motor is 2X larger and the rack has ball bearings.

They are cheaper than the 2000's, too.

If using a single servo, a conventional 2.5 - 4g servo might work better, but I haven't tried one.

Here is my new MX-5, slightly bigger and 1 gram heavier.

AUW~29 grams

Does not fly so well.

Looks like a lot of unnecessary bracing

well the rudder servo in my su-26 went on the fritz today... locked up at full right and spun the plane into the ground, demolishing the nose of the plane...

so I copied an idea right from this thread and used the left over parts to make a flying wing after a little mixing everything moves the way it should, but who knows if it'll actually fly, LOL! I'll find out tomorrow!

Be careful launching it. I have been bit by a pusher prop, launching is tricky!
Can you have a assistant hold it by the wing tips, and launch that way?
