even the ds09 sticks out a bit. Even thoug hte hs125 is only 1mm thicker the area is greater and puts more servo where he whing is thinner...

we need good 6mm thick servos I think

In other words I need the servos covers that have the part that sticks up ? Or will the smooth ones work ?

The Swist wing is very thin,the covers will need a rise in them.I used the carbon covers that SUSA sells,they worked great.

Warmonger, go with DS09 in the wing, not DS095. Choose the fast GMD version for ailerons and the slow AMD (or 94802) for flaps. The fast plastic DS11-GCB would be ideal for elevator.

+1 to that. Who ever makes decent 6mm or even 7mm thick servos will be getting my money.

I personallly run the JR DS285's on the elev, Ive found its more accurate then the HS65's. Also been thinking about trying the new Hitec 7115's for the ailerons, they are only 8mm thick but a little long, should be able to make them fit though.

That thing really moves! What power setup is in there? Apologies if you've already said.

Actually there are some servos out there which can be trimmed to this size.

Vigor VS 12M
I would not declare them as decent,maybe limited decent!

Usually i order 8 of them and select them by gearbox slope and center accuracy.
The best i take for my F5d, the others for my limited pylons or as a gift for the youg people´s foamies!

I ordered about 25 of them in the last years, 2 have been DOA, one was chittering a lot in neutral.
I killed 2 by experimenting with 6V and a couple to find the right way to trim down and to glue it inmould.

Once installed properly they work fine and reliable.
Main slope problem is not the gears but more the output shaft!

Accuracy is worse than the DES but as i dont like to use spoilerons und limit my throws mechanicly to about 8mm it works fine for me.

Dont want to recommend them because they are cheap chinese stuff but i like the clean surface of my wings!

I've use a lot of these servos and they work well but all seem to have an issue were they center depending on their warm up. When I first plug them in they are off center from the previous outing and after I fly the center goes back to normal. Other than that they have decent power and the metal gears seem to hold up well to wear. I have ones in a Magellan that are 6 years old, when HK first started carruing them and the slop is minimal.

I would never recommend them on a pylon racer or true hotliner but they have good use in other apps.

Hmm, I really dont understand why large companies like JR or Futaba cant make a high quality, digital, preferably HV, low profile servo for these wings. Im talking 7-8mm thick, 2kg of torque, less then 0.15 transit time... I know hitec has one now but it's too long to be practical for these wings.

Kinda frustrating really, we need a high quality extremely thin servo and no one seems willing to make them.

It's either physics, or too small of a niche market for servos like that- unfortunately.....

As all of my carbon airframes are selfbuilt and none of the F5d sized ones is more expensive than 150 $ (even in spread-tow) i am pretty sure that i,(calculated in % of all over price) spend more for my rc equipment than most of you!
