You mean from the elevator to the fuse? The screw is about 1-2mm too short. I forced it in by compressing the EPO slightly and putting loctite on the tip of the screw.

Looks good for the ailerons but these might be a bit undersized for the elevator & (IMHO) these would be much too small for the pull-pull rudder & tail wheel setup on this beast. Consider a standard-size servo, meaning big, for that one...

out of stock,

Metal geared would the preferred style of servo for the Sbach rudder & elevator, especially with the amount of opposing forces being applied to those large control surfaces...

Having said that, I've got standard (plastic) geared servos on both my Sbach & E-flite Diamante & haven't had any issues yet. These are not HK branded nor sold by HK, either. I have GWS std servos all around on the Diamante I got off of ebay & the others are from Hobby Partz as they have a decent selection of servos to choose from on their website...if they happen to be in stock...

actually yeah your right. i should get 4 mg servos.

how much servo torque does this model require?

and also, if youve ordered this plane from usa warehouse, what shipping method did you choose?

USPS Parcel Post 5-6Day Oversize US-PP  $40.03
UPS Small Parcel Value (Within USA)  $53.74

my girlfriend did the standard shipping. Took about a week and a half to get here. I'll upload some photots of putting the tail wheel on as the instructions suck. Took me 3 attempts to get the configuration right.

I just read posts on a few people swapping the stock ones out.

The 9 gram servos in the ailerons for an acrobatic plane seemed really iffy. I liked the idea of standard size for the E/R so I'm installing them when I get back to the build. Have not flown, don't even have the wings on yet! Stock ARF servos are replaced for the most part on my "builds".

I am running the high speed versions of the 1705 mgs from ValueHobby in a 48 inch Techone Swift 3D machine. They have been preforming great for 35+ flights and that airframe gets hucked around every flight. I have the 1705mgs for my ailerons as well on the SBach.

I saw a post where someone put in carbon spars down the length of the fuselage. Is this overkill or a good idea? See attached for what i'm thinking of doing
