I afraid I don't know. Everybody that I know that has made the electric conversion on the Rascal has been able to balance it without any added weight. All of the Rascals that I know of have used different motors using 8, 10 or 12 cells and have all balanced.

I got excited when I saw the "Build" thread for a Rascal 110 thinking Sig had produced a Kit or plans. What a let down down.

I just use analog metal gear servos. I don't remember the number but I do use Hitec . I use metal gear servos because I've had bad luck with nylon and carbonite gears. Most metal gear servos sill have one nylon gear but I have not had any problems with them yet.

I just picked up these mg servos, they have almost 100oz of torque on a 2s lipo.
(anyone have any experience with these, good or bad?)

I think I have those on my flaps. They should be good all the way around.

Well about 8 years ago I was flying my Rascal with Karbonite geared servos and one day when I taxied it in after a flight I noticed one of my ailerons wasn't moving. I found out the gears had stripped. Then I thought if that would have happened to my elevator servo I would have carried the Rascal back home in a Hefty bag. So I panicked and bought 4 HS 985MG servos for the elevator, rudder and ailerons. These same servos are in my new Rascal. I do like them, but I don't think you would notice any difference with HS 645MG's. I do have the HS 645MG's for the flaps. The HS 985MG's cost almost twice as much as the HS645MG's.
