by then I should be able to offer a full review of the PTE engine I'm putting on mine. It ends up being a little cheaper if you want the pitts muffler and as I have already said... MO POWWAH !

servo in the tail... I'm told it would be tough to balance otherwise. I'd say 166 is a little weak. The minimum rating I can find is the hs 985mg which has 172 oz/in. You may be ok but your servo setup is going to have to be perfect and you might have to sacrifice some throw to avoid blowback.

I use this servo for my rudder and i don't worry about any blow back.
I don't like there rubber grommets though and recommend changing them

power hd 1214th it is194 .oz .14sec at 6.0v
would this be considered a slow servo?

The 1214th servo is really fast. Incidentally it's what I'm using but on unregulated 2s life. It is an HV servo. Mine are already installed but I don't have any flights on them yet. It was a good value at about $35/servo each shipped from hobbyking. I haven't inspected them in person yet since my buddy is building the plane and lives 4 hours away. He says they are killer and he generally usually only uses high dollar hitec servos in all his stuff. Center well and lots of speed and torque.

Kerwin that servo isn't even going to center by the time I'm pushing it the other way in my rollers Need something 2x that speed IMO.

Nate thats a great find on those servos if they center. Please let me know how they work out I may just have to put them in my plane, though I don't know if I need anything that fast.

I am using HS 5645's running on a an A123 straight into the Rx and I have zero issues......it will easily do a knife edge loop, hehe I should have put a faster servo in it but after flying it, it is not a problem at all.
