I have no experience with these. They look like the same case as MKS. High Voltage and light. What is the reliability like? Are these purchased direct from Bluebird?

I just retro fitted one of my old models with the new servos.

You might need to re trim when they are new or cold for a short time but it will improve as they break in.

Looking forward to hearing how you like them.

Sorry for the late reply. No first hand experience on the high voltage BMS A56V, just on the normal voltage Turnigy A55H. The A56V seems to be available from several european online shops but price is considerably higher than the A55H from HK:

Was trying to add a picture with Tapatalk, but could not do it.
Anyhow, I am ready to change out the servos in my wings.
The new fuselage is ready.
The old servos on flaps ar JR 378`s, so by cutting the bottom mounting lugs, the new 389HV servos would fit without any modifications.
But I have some CNC frames with 3rd bearing from SmartModel.
Is this a uprgrade that is worth the effort? If it was a new model I would surly put them in there.

They are quite nice frames. On the flaps I think it would help.

I don't know if your old fuselage was 2.4ghz friendly. If not, the new 2.4ghz friendly is not THAT 2.4ghz friendly. The glass only start at about half way in the front servo hole. You can't really see it if your fuselage is black (I have one white and one black).

The frames are 10g each, so it would add 40g to the airframe

My old fuselage was not 2.4 friendly. This is one of the reason i got a new one.
I have not had any issues with my other 2.4 ghz friendly fuselage.

My point is that on the freestyler the carbon extends further forward in the fuselage than on other models.

It is not a problem just something to be aware of. The fuselage is only non-carbon from about the middle of the front v tail servo.

My point is you can't see this if you have a black fuselage, because it is the same colour as the carbon.

I have just purchased the new Spektrum DX18 transmitter that has a module for relaying battery and signal information back to the radio. These functions can be put on an alarm with tone and vibrate in the TX. Nice feature but it is hard to shoehorn another module into an F3F/F3B model.[/QUOTE]

Take the case off the telemetry module and shrink wrap it. Just make sure the bind button is still uncovered and easy to get to. Works great!
