Anyone have any second hand servos lying around?
Wait for new ones fella... Not worth it on record chasing planes. The wind will be there always. No rush.. Make them perfect.

Looking good Alex! Glad they made the trip OK! Never seen customs sit on a package that long...

Got a feeling you'll be going super fast real soon! Now would be a good time to start building a radar/pilot bunker at Tekapu ;o)Let me know if I can help out with any additional build info.

If you need another opinion, ask Bosley about putting used servos into a brand new Kinetic ;o). Luckily his burned out before even getting it in the air...

Build slow, Fly Fast!!! -- and tape well ;o)

Theres your problem.
If you would stop building 3 or 4 planes a week you might go faster.
