and kamelot is a heavier plane?
he said it depends on the motor size
he also mentioned so many people use 55's on a way too big a plane
and that helli piolots are constantly rebuilding 55's after a crash
65's will be it has to be now they are installed
wish I bought larger servos though

I just use the 65s in the ailerons. Flaps were something bigger. Maybe ds368s.

My Kamie is much faster and yes bigger than the AB.

So has Hitec addressed any of the issues I used to see with their 125/5125, 81/85 servos?

125/5125 stripping the output gear if you dont smile correctly or the 81/85's not centering very precisely?

I have a few of the Futaba s3150's and s3155's, anyone useing them?

I can say that the HS85MG, I have fitted, have not been a problem.

David,
they are fine...
IF you see the "distributor" for Hitec, tell him to give me a call!

Best,

Hitec HS65HB or MG are great! Much better then the old Hitec servo's.

Absolute is a hotliner, not pattern flyer.

Futaba S3150 are superb.

I am planning on the S3150's for the ailerons and a S3155 for the elevator.

Sorry
Yuri.
Well I got answer and price from FVK, they say no option for flaps on Absolute. So there may be other place to look for that then.

I am thinking on considering Kamelot rather than Absolute because of the flaps. It is not a big price difference.

Any opinion on Kamelot versus Absolute?

I would try to contact the manufacturer about the carbon flapped version and not just a distributor. FVK produces no models.

Hi,
As far as I know, none of Absolute are sold with flapped version, but on the other hand, there is a NON FLAPPED version of Kamelots available as shown in FVK site.

I will definitely prefer Absolute than Kamelot for FUN. And recently, I just got my 'fleet of ABs' on the feet again with some 'relocations' of various power trains...got my no.4 to no.7 on the feet again , yes got 7.5 pcs (half for one pair of spare wings) of them from the beginnings...and I only bought 2.5 pcs Kamelot, and still having one NIB Kam,so you might see the degree of my preference amongst them...but I do NOT mean to say KAM is BAD, it is more likely my crappy landing skills together with more crappy flying venue that broke KAM fuselage all the times.

Imho, besides the roomy and stout fuselage offer by Absolutes, another greatest 'feature' of AB is its SIMPLICITY., eg. Less wirings works.,less controls to messy with, ie less mistakes, more time/ efforts to look into power systems, and with its RG airfoil that, slows down easily with spoilerons and high AOA during landings.,I enjoy these controllable landings, so flaps won't be needed really.

Good Luck

Regards,
David

(PS: I might try to 'convert' my early AB into a FLAPPED frankenstein typed AB, I do so for I really want to learn IF flaps could help to make more lift for extra weight from a severly beaten AB...... I have already done such mod to a wing of my CAT (= HL's Tigre..),waiting for some spared/ foul fuselages to work onto, sorry OT)
