Man with the original ff100 build I had trouble finding quality servos that small. I now got the silver cf frame and I bought some cirrus 4g micro servos ----$22a piece---------they are to small -- how ironic hu

Any idea of what to use to make the servo mountinga bit easier ? I thought about 2 small pieces of plexi glass -- like two new plates on either side. !st cup of coffee lol I'll post a few pics soon but was looking for some suggestions. I huess Im not suppose to have a ff1-- rof I finally get the tail figured out and now the servos are too small

Markus,

I used TowerPro SG 50 / Hextronix HXT500 - you need to do a little "adjusting" of the frame to make either fit, but they are a much better servo than the 3.7 / 4.3 gram ones IMHO.

Yes, i was about to suggest the towerpro 5g's. Think im going to use those in the ep200 also. Make sure they arent knock-offs.
lightflightrc.com has 4 of them for i think 26 dollars

Thanks fellas -- after trying to fit the cirrus -- I tired hs-55 they fit side to side but not in height so I will have to look around lhs and see what else I can find lol

Heres a link to the servos -- http://www.hobbypeople.net/gallery/440101.asp
the specs seem real nice and handleing the servos feel way tighter than the others that small and come highly recommended from LHS -- lol if they dont work I dont have a problem dealing with them :0)

why kind of frame cutting should I have to do with these servos-- towerpro 5g'ers to fit?

I am not really into cutting the nice frame and there isnt much room to go either way top or bottom. Hope not much and they fit well I ordered the 4pack for $27 :0) thanks Mulikow.

Markus

In the mean time I can pop these on one of the three stock frames lol

Dizzy, i have no clue what your size of the holes are in your frame...i would have assummed you would check the specs on lightflights site before you ordered them.
Guess you can check now...while your waiting for them..lol

Hey -- Im not making a dime from this just passing it along. If any of you guys were thinking of gettin the ELE fiberglass frames now is the time to do it. The have overstock of red fiberglass frames, but also have white and blue along with silver. The current deal I can get them to your door is:

$35.00 USD for the silver
$31.00 USD white,blue
$30.50 USD red
USCON48
The red will save ya like 3 bucks and the others around 2 bucks. I have cut some deals with Ele :0) Pm me if your interested and I will send you a direct link.

Evening Gents,

I finally have a running ff100 lol. I onlyhave an 8x8 area with 7foot ceilings so I trimmed as far as I can go inside -- no flying till the 23rd :0(.

Those towerpro50- 5g'ers dont fit the fiberglass frames incase anyone was wondering -- dont think you can file enough of the fame away to make them fit without compromising the integrity oif the fame. Back to the drawing board there.

Markus

CURRENT SPECS:
3 Cirrus 101std 4g micro servos --absolutely bolt on -- perfect fit
http://www.hobbypeople.net/gallery/440101.asp
Futaba 3114 on tail
Align 550x HH gyro
CX2 battery -- 7.4 800mah
Stock motor and pinion

The propwash is amazing at how much it can move this helia round lol

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ng-Tk...e=channel_page

A bit more trimming and its gettinbetter -- need the armory :0)

Dizzy,
Glad you got it flying. (refrained from build duration puns! )

I see your using the stock ele motor (15t?) on 2s.
I could not get any decent power from the ele stuff on 2s.

One question: Does it piro left? ie did you sort the tail?
