To me, the Futaba is a clear winner. I usually run a 3154 on the ailerons and 3114s on the tail. I'll give up a few grams for the torque and at .14sec, the HS-45 is a snail . The advantage of the HS servo is a beefier gear train although I've never broken a set of gears on the Futabas.

For a 5g servo, the Dymond D47s is lightening fast at .08 transit speed with 16oz of torque. The slower D47 @ .14sec transit has 20oz of torque.

I agree with you on outdoor planes, i went with 3154 all the way around on my crack slick and on my pits i went with 3156 on the ailerons and 54's on the tail, But we are talking about indoor planes and trying to keep them as light as possible. So if you are putting a 21 oz on the ailerons witch are the the largest control surface, and there are two, why would 11 oz on each tail surface not work? Buy using the 35's you almost save the weight of one servo. Not saying that 54 all the way around would make the new crack yak light fly bad, just fly a little lighter! Just my thoughts

Thanks for the feedback guys. I no longer think I have a lot of planes with just having 5 or 6 ready to go... lol.... This also helps in my conversations with the Mrs.... "Yea, but honey, I only have 6 or 7.... some guys have over 20.... see, it's not THAT bad..." lol....

Lol Jforbes my wife can't figure out why I have more than 1. Her response. You can only fly 1 at a time.

Not sure my wife pays attention enough to notice that I bring 4 or 5 to fly and only come home with 1 that still is flyable with the rest needing fixing. Haha. Someday it'll click.

Tell your wife she should be very happy that you accept that theory -- as applied to women -- but she shouldn't push her luck by trying to stretch it to airplanes!

Numbers on motor

What do the numbers mean on the motors? For instance 2203-1750kv or 2204-1450kv or 2206-1450kv.

I can't figure out if my motor or esc is bad so I was just going to buy new ones to figure out which is bad, as I don't have a spare of either. I currently have the Crack Series 2204-1450, but I want to know the difference between the above so I can decide if I go with the same or different (for different performance I assume).

I am just learning but I believe the first numbers are for the size 22 (diameter)? and 04 (depth)? this is not a standard on every outrunner motor. From what I understand the second set 1750 and 1450 are rpms per volt. The heavier (bigger) the motor the more power you can get out of it but with power comes amps and that draws the batteries down quicker. I am learning as I go along so someone please correct me if I am wrong.

So the research I found seems to coincide with what you said. Now how do I determine the motor I need or in my case, I'm replacing my motor/esc can I chose a different motor than I currently have (2204-1450kv)? Why would I want to? Why would I not?

I'm a newb to the whole number theme as well. I go by power to weight ratio when I'm hunting for a motor. 5oz plane then a 10oz + thurst motor is on my list. I know some might have a better way to do it but this is how I do it. Sorry to hear you didn't get your problem solved.

I do not have a twisted hobbys plane YET. But I have been doing quite a bit of research towards which airframe suits me. There 2204-1750 is only good for 2s while the other two 2204-1450 and 2206-1450 are good for 2-3s. Once you determine what battery option you use and if you need all the power and extra weight to fly outdoors (wind) then choose appropriately, but keeping in mind that the more power the more amps and shorter flight times on 2s, 3s should run less amps and provide longer flight times but again I have 0 experience. I am looking to make a decision soon so I can have some fun.
