So I used kst 115's in the fuse, kst 125's http://www.alofthobbies.com/kst-ds135mg-wing-servo.html in the flaps and kst 135's at the ailerons. Jb welded the push rods ends on at the tail.

Got side tracked (took a phone call) with cleaning the shop and making servo tray for my genesis. Then I started cleaning the van.

Nothing glued in today

Still need to cut/epoxy push rod at servo end glue in servo tray and make a harness.

I think the human species will have evolved to a level where there will no longer be the yearning for atmospherical cruising before you finish that Ceres!

They came from a rcrcm typhoon that I built 2yrs ago. Luckily I never used them as I went with other frames for that build. From what I've seen on kst's site the MKS servo frames will work. The KST ds135's have the same bolt pattern as a Hitec's 125.

FINISHED!
The kst's are centering like champs.

No maiden flight as of yet, winds never came from the right direction.

She came in at a stout 90oz's wich is heavier than I wanted to have built out to.

Mine is 93oz. She'll fly just fine, even in fairly light conditions.

3rd bearing eliminated flutter

Go easy on high speed dive tests in energetic air; I had to resort to the 3rd bearing set-up to prevent flutter. I've used both JR 171 (378s in US) AND MKS 6125 Minis and they both fluttered (not too badly and no damage). Since installing the 3rd bearing for the MKS servos I've had no trouble even with its 1.5Kg concrete boots on.

Windrider is one option, pricey but the best IMHO :
