The HXT-900 might be the best value product in RC.

but hey $3 for servos, you could go broke, how about $1.89 lol.

I tried these in a 40" and they weren't too bad, a little blowback. They are fast and center well.

I think the orange wonders would be great in a 38" kit.

i have the orange ones in my 38" yak and they do ok. if i really chuck it around doing like full forward loop straight into a full back loop a few times the elevator servo will start acting wierd. had one crash but glued it back up and kept flying like it never happened.

they are pretty solid servo's. i have the orange high voltage servo's in my 50cc yak and they have been great also.

Another servo to consider is the EXI from Hobbypartz.

The D213 is a digital rated at 22oz. http://www.hobbypartz.com/9gexidimeges.html


I have recently put these into a sail plane that called for 30oz and have yet to see a problem. They are fast, metal gear and best I can tell quite solid.

Personally I think they would be a suitable choice for a 48" and probably a 55".

Granted they don't have the rating but don;t over look these little devils.

Oh and consider there shipping from the good ol' USA!

The BEC on the Thunderbird 36A ESC

Fellas, a question: on DWF's 36A ESC (the Thunderbird), what's the rating on the bec?

5A or 6A?

Mike ended up sending me a new fusion kit as it turns out mine had incorrect EPP density as a few others have mentioned (Great customer service as always). Anyways, I'm going to move my dynamo motor/esc to the new kit and wanted to get a cheap motor for my old kit to bash around. Can someone point me to a motor that would be comparable to the dynamo one from hobbyking or hobbypartz as I'm not very good in picking one out, thanks.

It depends on how cheap you want. This is a motor that John (Flopgun) turned us onto a few years ago. It is not near the quality of the Dynamo as you will soon see, but it works ard is cheap. I have only had one of them, but I know that John has had quite a few and he could probably give you a better report on it.

How would this one do?

Is there another choice that people have used that's not backordered currently?

Shoot Jeff an email at HeadsUp RC and let him know your plane and what you're looking for. He has nice cheap motors and good customer service as well. He'd be able to set you up with something.
