For checking calibratiion/accuraccy of 1g resolution scales, use a known weight such as coins (google to find their weights). My $30 scale from OfficeMax is very accurate to 1gm.

Other than airframes, no huge changes from last year. Would that be a fair assessment?

The servos FS31 almost disappeared
The weight stay constant, but the servos are heavier
Mfly motors disappeared, replaced by SG motors

Hitec 5035 arrived and is sure best servo for such low weight. This servo is on my Symmetric ruder, and im happy about it. I cut wire down and get 3.3g. I get mine at Autopartner.se

I still like JR servos allot but it is very hard to bring plane weight down without using latest hot releases.

Are you guys running the 5035's with 5V from the BEC or direct from 2S? At least Markus seems to be using them with the YGE-4 that does not have a BEC. Will they hold up?

Thanks Markus! I did not realize there were 2 different versions of the YGE-4. I only have the "4S" versions with no BEC.

Hi,

can anyone tell me why they are using the hs-65hb on ailerons?

I think it is somehow slow.

Why is nobody flying with Futaba S3114 or s3154/3154mg on ailerons?
does the hs65hb crash better because of the carbonite gear?

Think for the F3P stuff the HS5035 is a good servo for all control surfaces.
But I can't make up my mind on AM-plane servos....any advise?


cheers,

cyril

I dont think anyone at that level cares about crashing. If you crash you loose.

The HB servos weigh less than their MG counterparts. I'm sure these guys stripped the servos down to save weight.

The larger Hitec servos have more torque. We use these servos in F3P with very long arms and as such we divide the torque they provide. Things tend to be slow because the servos lack torque more than they lack speed. Going to a faster servo will only make things faster if you have an oversupply of torque.

The Hitec stuff has proven itself to be very robust servo for this size application. The new HS-45HB is pretty amazing. The HS-65HB is bomb proof at this size. I've personally burnt up some expensive Futaba digitals in this application so now I stick with the Hitec stuff.

The data was collected and displayed at the entrance of the hall. I have not seen a spreadsheet online however.

Here is the photo of collected data of used equipment. If you zoom in with the icon on the top of the picture, it is possible to read almost everything..
