I've built two with the standard motor box. I think for the Meridian I only had to replace the blind nuts for the Power 46 with repositioned blind nuts for the Power 60. it's a fairly easy thing to do.

That's great to know as I want as little hassle as possible. It's a pity the power 46 wouldn't fly it without having to add a load of lead to the nose.

I forgot to ask you did you have much trouble getting the old blind nuts out?

I'm having a heck of a time with the wing servos. When my hitec HS425BB are installed with an arm at 16mm length from screw, the arm rubs the side of the slot, isn't centered I've tried different rubber grommets, went into a store and tried every servo I could find, but they all scrape, limiting travel. What does everyone else use for servos? Any chance I got bad servo hatches? Anyone have a working set that could provide measurements of their hatches?

I have a Meridian. What measurement do you want? Here's one from an old Meridian I no longer have. I can see that I had to enlarge the slot a little to prevent rubbing. On my current Meridian. The servo arm is just about centered in the slot., which has not been enlarged. I don't know exactly what servos I am using now. The cover They are standard size Hitec digital servos.

Mine has a Saito 91 though

What do these things weigh?

Would my Saito FA-82 be enough power?

No idea regarding weight, sorry

The 82 might actually be better suited. The 91 is overkill and probably a bit too heavy!

saito 100 would probably be perfect.

The 100 is a very heavy engine. Much heavier than a 82.

The Meridian does need extra nose weight to balance out.

Thanks, that's good information. Last couple ARF's I built came out nose heavy.
