Exactly. I run the 0257s on my 48" Extra with the same BEC and I absolutely love them.

Not me I have issues with a mini savox. Emailed them and heard nothing back so its likely going in the trash.

Edit: Spoke to soon. Just heard from savox warranty. It's going back to the mother ship!

Is anyone using these Savix mini digitals with an 8FG without problems?

I just redid mine and put the next size larger like Losi mentioned. They are 3/16 instead of 1/8. I got the big bag which came with the drill guide. It's a bag of 50 so if you need some let me know. I'll hook you up. I'll even send you the drill guide if you promise to send it back.

I just checked mine the other day on my SuperVyper with a Hacker 55a esc and was pulling right at 50amps. I would think you would be ok in the air.

I used the same setup for a while
I was pulling 52 amps max fully charged. I never had any problems.
It will dip below 50 rather quickly.

if I was going to get cf tube to cover 4-40 threaded rod, would something like this with a .121" ID be the thing to get?

Sure, 4-40 is a nominal .112 inches in diameter.

That pic was with a 6 year old Sony Alpha 100, with a 12+ year old Minolta 75-300mm lens.
