Thank you for letting me know that it is very delicate, since I am kind of a clod. One of my 3MM foam planes was destroyed due to my big hands and I don't mean by dumb-thumbs either. If I purchase this one do doubt I could not afford to mill it down to the weight you did but I bet it flies superior.

hey guys i flew mine today and flew great! im gng to buil another one i was just wondering if you guys think the spectrum servos will work DSP60J here are some specs
Type: Digital
Torque: 13.2 oz-in (0.95kg-cm) @ 4.8V
Speed: .09 sec/60 deg @ 4.8V
if i use these i can use micro reciever since they come with mircro jst plug. i will also buy the spectrum programmer to program them so i dont get the jittering problem some ppl have gotten.

how come you didnt run dymond 4.7 on aileron as well since they are much lighter and have more torque?? do you think 12.1 oz of torque is enough for this plane all around?

the diamonds in real life have slightly less power than the bb306 did. funny though the bb306 has died! Fortunatly it seized near the center position when i was flying but it was still a laugh to land it! It was a previously used servo from another plane so its lifetime was quite a lot of use. the Diamond 4.7's i used are 15.2oz torque .18second speed on the box. the diamonds ARE a great servo! fast, amazing centering and very light!
