Do you guys know if on a bipe like that, if there is an aileron servo on each wing, or are they connected, like on my little UMX Beast?

2 servos IIRC, with the other wing half connected via a rod. I looked at it pretty close at the fly-low in Missouri last month.

I find a metric one more useful for electric planes. Seems nearly all of the motors have metric sized shafts.

Get the metric one. I can't remember the last time I had an RC anything that had standard.

It's too bad too many people in the US are so stuck in standard.

I think the better question is can you stick a servo in each wing if you want as an option, so a total of four. HS-65mgs seem like they would be enough for each aileron.

So I just went out for a flight on the shp and i know I should have kept it not so crazy for the first test flight but it has been well over 2 weeks and I could not hold it in. so I was going crazy!!! You guys know what happen to joe's 104" at xfc while in that KE spin? Well my 47" just about did that into a small tree (I think of Aron when I say tree ) I went into KE spin and went to get out of it and it just kept going pulled it into a hover just in time, it was about 10ft from the ground and the tree branches were moving after I basically ran into it and got luck and flew away.

Then, I was doing a blender came out of it went for 3 flat spins and the motor just had no power (dead battery) I was already stalled with 25 ft and couldn't do much it ended up going into the nose at about a 30 degree angel way out in the feild, it was loud to but not even a crack on the cowl did not take off the cowl yet.

I brought her in, I could not touch the motor, I spun the motor and something is in there and it does not spin so freely anymore. Oh and that battery pack went from 12.6v to 9.9v with in 4:30 seconds....I need a gas plane.
