Yes I know and Garyson has the servo in stock but does it have the 18" lead or is it the short one that is used on the rubber and elevator
I asked Garyson and never did get a straight answer. I sent a request to Niro asking but I am not holding my breath for an answer let alone a correct one.
I kind of got on Garyson because it appeared my question was not worth any effort to find the correct answer.

Thanks to you for looking for me

One thing that I find very common to the foamy model emthusiast, is preferring to purchase OEM replacement parts when something goes wrong. There are so many options out there for electronics. I am boggled by the lengths that people will go to get an OEM radio component. No offense intended..more like...suggesting that it is best to find the best value in a replacement part, rather than making sure it is identical to stock. If I have a situation where I need a long lead servo, I open the case of a servo with incorrect..and solder new servo wire to whatever length I want. (I keep rolls of servo wire handy available at Servo City and HK) I make my own servo leads whenever warranted. Maybe it is because I came to the foamy model segment after years of traditional kit building. I am just used to fabricating solutions that are generally better than OEM anyway.

I agree 100% with you . i make my own servo wires and i usually replace worned out oem parts with something low cost but better quailty .
i have a A-1 Skyraider (from starmax ) that i purchased from Bananna hobby . one of the retracts burned out on the first landing. i called up BH after a few tries got ahold of them . they agreed to replace . i had to ship out the damaged one,(cost me somewhere around 10.00 . they sent me a replacement 6 weeks later and it was damaged as well. i went with some other retracts after that . i learned why bother getting a oem when there bound to be super cheap or will break just as fast as the first oem . i have a Dynam Peaks(pitts special) the rudder servo(17 gram) stripped on its 2nd landing i replaced it with a power up metal gear servo which ony cost me 7.00 . i have over 20+ flights on the pitts with no problem . i dont bother calling or email the sellers to replace a part that was cheap from the get go. i take it as a wash and move on . another thing i do is i usually just order the kits and put my own parts ,but unfortunetly the Waco doesnt come as a kit . "yet"

think of it this way your buying a reciver ready plane for 130.00. four hi qualty servos will run you the price of that plane . dont expect much from the servos . esc or motor that come with these low cost planes . there bound to strip, burn out or malfunction.

Funny thing I was just thinking that myself, not sure if I could solder the servo leads but was thinking about ordering a PZ sevo and putting that in, come to find out, I have a brand new in my pile of stuff
I don't surpose it would hurt if it have more torque then the stock one

Thanks for the idea
Ken
The PZ servo for the Trojan dropped in perfect, sometimes I get so focused on an idea I have to get hit in the face to see the trees

On replacement servos.. I had one get stripped out on a EDF. I could not get a OEM servo so I replaced it with the closest I could find. Only problem was .. the travel was not the same. I ended up trying different horns and positions in the servo arm.. Ended up very close but not exact. And when the 2 servos are on a Y .. you can`t adjust travel for the difference.

That is the reason I always use differential when possible, I can adjust the throw of each servo, plus I like the way it make the models turn. I have found that you can do too much and then the model flies very poorly
Thanks for the input I will be looking for that.

I know everybody has weighed in, but here is my two cents. I have a drawer full of OEM cheap crappy servos that don't work or don't center. What does that tell you.

Yeah...something else I get to fix before even flying it! my left aileron servo sounds like it's stripping a tooth or two. Sure looks pretty sitting on top of my wife's car in the garage, tho!

For those that ordered from killerplanes...
What's the deal with the Dynam flap installation option on the Waco page?
Do they actually install flaps on the Waco if you select that option?
I didn't know there was enough room for flaps on a Waco...so, maybe it was an oversight?

Here's the link to the page:

In a situation like that (a Y-harness) replacing both servos is the best thing to do. let's say the OEM servo on the left aileron just died...how long do you suppose the right one is going to last? Point being..just get a matched set upgrade, and not have to worry about it again for at least a while. You know what they say, not if, but when.
