Build Questions about Easy Star
I got the Easy Star! I'm impressed on how well design the kit is -lots of attention to detail and good instructions. It seems like a very straight forward build but because I'm really green at this (first build project) I have some questions.
Here's the first batch. All about servos.
I have JR submicro servos. The submicros are too small for the servo cavities on the sides of the fuselage. Should I get different servos or just cushion them with foam and double-sided tape until they fit snuggly?
Should I get different servos because of torque issues? The Easy Star seems like park flyer caliber in terms of torque needs but I'm not sure.
I prefer not have to buy new servos for the obvious monetary reasons but I wouldn't be opposed if it's the best thing to do.
If the right thing is to install larger servos, do I need to change the receiver? In my mind, it's clearly unnecessary but I'm not 100% certain and would like a confirmation.
Thanks for the tips. I actually bought a couple of Hitech Hi-81's. These fit just fine and I'll save the sub micros for a future plane.
Now back to the build process. I noticed that the instructions do not say anything about cutting the rudder and elevators. They can't move unless I cut them off. I was just about to do this but then I thought about getting some feedback from you guys. The fact the instructions are so clear for everything else is what makes me wonder about my surgical intentions.
