What rx voltage are you using? I think these hyperions only like up to 5.5v. Spec says max input 5.5v.

GMD is the really fast, low torque one isnt it? That might explain why it's failing first with a battery pack that is losing voltage.

I'll also had digitals do funny things with low voltage packs when testing on the bench.

Think I got it fixed now ... I susoect that it was the voltage issue. BTW, is it common for these servos to "whine" continuously at rest?

Every hyperion (got about 12) i have whines :-D

They do it at 5 or 5.5v, even without any load on them.

I think it's really normal. Gets me ALOT of strange looks out in the field when all the old dudes are used to analog servos which only whine when there is a problem.

Swist - Empty weight

Hi there -

Can anyone tell me the empty weight of the Swist.... with no gear in it? The current 1 piece wing version (with the slightly smaller fuse, as Bob mentioned)

Iím on the waiting list for the next shipment. Iíve got a slightly different use for the model than it was originally designed Ė and weight is one of the driving factors.

Thanks in advance!
Dave

Funny about servos all acting up now days. Hard to get a good picture of which servos to use and where.

Which servos does the F5D guys use for competition?
