HS-7954SHs are fine. I had them in my 'Big Foot' with no problems.

I didn't like their torque and precision.

But at the end it's often about general trust and I nearly only use Sav÷x servos now.

With the Elevator it depends on how the servos are installed. If they are installed with the output shaft toward the hinge line (as mine are) then you would need approximately 72mm, as shown in the photo. If they are installed with the output shaft away from the hinge line you would need a longer turnbuckle. As it turns out Lunsford doesn't make a 72mm only 73mm which should work fine. At any rate, I use the 3mm Punisher Turnbuckles in the proper length.

You may also want a turnbuckle wrench which is shown in the last link below. The wrench for the Punisher Turnbuckles is the one on the left side of the page.

The Ailerons are pretty simple. They should be installed with the output shaft toward the hinge line and the turnbuckles should be approximately 52mm. But as you can see, I took a measurement from the center of the ball link barrel, which could be different from your ball links and that would effect the length of turnbuckle needed. I suggest you get Lunsford titanium turnbuckles as shown in the links below. I also like Secraft ball-links as shown in the link below.

If I were you I would install the ball links and take the same measurements that I did, and then order the correct length that you need. Although the numbers I posted are probably good for most ball links. Installation of the control surface horns could also alter the length needed.

Best of luck with it,

EDIT: BTW, the 76" MXS is the same aircraft as the 83". Only difference would be the tips installed on the 83 and not on the 76.

One linked to the 52s and one for the 73. Look closely and you'll see the part numbers are different on each page. Hope they work out well for you. I really like 'em and some of the EF planes come with them now.

The GForce pilot looks very sharp! Another option that is lighter and less expensive is the PilotX from EF.

Yup and the Pilot X weigh about half as much as a G-Force pilot.

How does that Plane hanging system you have there work? Do you have to get on a ladder to hang it and take it down?
