Bob, Without Keven on the gun it will not be a real speed run
We use him as a target to aim at

Exactly that is why I ordered special shsirts for Kevin......... You know the shirts that have a Bullseye printed on the front and back to give that perfect target for the speed run.

So, I ordered my servos. I went High Voltage. I'm hoping the electric retracts are ok on 7.4v, if not I'll use a Spektrum VR5203 to step it down to 6.0v for them.

Here's what I got:
Ailerons: Hitech HS-5565MH -Standard Size servo Metal gear 194oz/.09 sec
Flaps: Hitech HS-5685MH - Standard Size servo Metal gear 179oz/.17 sec
Rudder: Hitech HS-5087MH - Mini Servo Metal Gear 60oz/.13 sec
Nose Steering: Hitech HS-5087MH - Mini Servo Metal Gear 60oz/.13 sec
Elevator: JR DS390HV - Precision Mini Metal Gear 75oz/.13

Keeping my fingers crossed they all fit, but looks like they will and should be a good choice for this plane. I used the recommended torque ratings for the BVM Electra as my guide along with the info and pics MCSGUY has posted (Thank you!) and the info BillyD has told me.

I tested the retracts with 6.6v A123 pack and they worked great. But i don't know if they will work with a 2s Lipo?

Maybe a quick call to JTM could help answer that one.
