I've been using GWS naro servos in a 36", now clipped to 32" for a couple of years now. Weighs 12-18oz depending on setup - I take the motor and lipo out and ballast it for slope. I've never had servo problems.

It depends on the speed of the wing as well. I've got several 30-34" wings that use GWS pico and naro servos and Hitec 55's, with no problems. What servos are you using? Butch

I have been using Gws naro's in the 32 inch Guillotine and works great in the 80 + mph range without any issues.

I hate to admit it but I used Picos in a 85 mph 28" wing. No issues thus far.
