F-20's are breeding down south.

Another F-20 ready for its maiden flight when the wind blows.

I have a nice set of servo covers here for your 20 if you want them.

i got an idea for the 2nd speedo, was thinking bagged foam core 4 servo wings, and ill fill the fuse with expandable foamwith snakes for the elevator installed. the servo spot could be carved out and same whit the reviever and batt, shoul make for super heavy tough racer
might need 1kg lead in the nose though....bummer

there isn't much room to put too much in there. i struggled to fit the 8g micro servo in and have room to move the servo arm.
only using $10 servos from hobby model warehouse, think ill go for a drive to j-car and see if they have AAA cells with solder tabs. you say the lipo is a bit of a risk so ill swap it out

There's not a lot of room in there, but it all fits OK.
HS55 servo
standard AAA pack (no tabs)
Rx. under wing.

Got a nice little parcel in the mail today. Looks like another speedo will be hitting the slopes soon. Pretty good service, 4 days to my door.
