Cheers!
Try it, might work good. I got HK $6 monster servos that I think can lift a truck. They don't move that much for the ZII's throws.

Thanks mate! I just want to make sure if I put this thing in a dive I can pull out quickly.

I could't find any Hitech locally at a decent price, so I went with these. They are not here yet, but I am hoping they will do the job.

thats what I use as well, zero issues with the servos, my only issue is the foam, it gets damaged when I crash...

The Goop they sell in the States is used by plumbers since it works great on PVC pipes. It contains toluene and petroleum distillate. It is very flammable and the vapor will make you sick so make sure you have some ventilation.

When you use that Goop, DO NOT let it touch the ZII foam directly. It will eat a hole in it. It works fine as long as you have used the laminate to cover the foam first but if it contacts the foam directly it will melt the foam.

have used it directly on the foam. No eating, no holes. But there are several different varieties of Goop. I am wondering why a 6 foot tall dung beetle wearing LA Raiders jersey was trying to convince my that the ZII has inferior lift to a Clark Y airfoil. Must need more ventilation!

LOL. Nice come back.

I guess there are different types of goop out there. The stuff I use had that toluene and petroleum distillates as the main components. What is in your goop?

Im using these from HK http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=17794 . I also have them in my 5lbs Sbach with full throws and work way better then my hi tech (twitchy). ZII needs less throws (1/4")
