What would make a good slow-flyer type plane /w 4 extra nes-537 servos & r700receiver

I have 4 extra nes-537 jr servos and 1 r700 reciver.

question is:

Is there anyway I could use them in a slow-flyer or something similar? I know there heavy and large, but I hate to see stuff sitting around...

I have tp2100 lipo's that I would want to use for this setup also..

Just want to make a fun/slow low worrie flyer..

If anyone has any ideas please reply..

thanks

Your receiver and servos are going to weigh as much as most good slow-flyer type airplanes. I don't think you are going to have much joy finding something for that radio equipment. Radio gear for slow-flyers are usually weighed in grams, not ounces.

You could probably get away with using them in a Slow Stick. Several people on this board are using cameras that weigh several ounces for aerial photography on the slow stick. It stands to reason that the plane shouldn't care whether the extra weight it carries is radio gear or a camera. While not exactly a slow/parkflyer, you could also use this stuff in a Telemaster; they're reasonably slow and gentle, but would need a bit more room to breathe than the slow stick.

I was referring to the venerable GWS Slow Stick. See Here.
