Savox SV-1250 servos @ 7.4v

The only thing I am gonna do different on the V2, is Hitec HS-7245 servos instead. I have not had luck with these servos. They were fine for about 45 flights, then I bumped the bec up to 8.4. Soon after I had an aileron servo fail, replaced it. Now the elevator servo wont center well. I was really happy with them up until this point. I since have lowered the bec back down to 7.4v. Have a new elevator servo on order. Other than that, this has been a fun plane. For me it does the meanest crankshafts and knife edge spins. That might be why servos have failed. I fly this plane the most aggressive.

Had issues with Savox 1250 in my elev too at 8.2v. The others are still going strong. But the replacement I got is hands down top notch. More power and speed than you really need ( more is mostest better) and cheaper than the Hitec too!

60" Slick V2 vs. 60" Laser


Thanks for the opinions and feedback. I just ordered the yellow 60" Slick V2 and will report back in a couple of weeks on the difference between it and the Laser.

Looking forward to your report on the V2 60" Slick. Great choice on the yellow scheme!

I hope to have my V2 60" Slick trimmed and dialed in before I report to Korea on 30 October 2017.

Thanks for asking.

I was in the Air Force. I've been to Korea 2 times both short TDYs. I liked it there. Most likely I would be there now if I was still in. I was a B1b crew chief and my plane is there now.

That had to have been quite an experience! Is this the plane?

Yep that's the one. It's much more impressive when you see one up close or hear one on a low fast pass with afterburners lit.

I'm really glad to have this plane. It's a beautiful piece of work. Everything fits perfectly and the overall quality of construction is remarkable. EF/3DHS must be very proud of this ARF.

Construction is coming right along. It should be flyable by this weekend.

Yes, I hope to have mine in the air soon.

What do you think of the specs on the servos in the hyperlinks below?

http://www.promodeler.com/DS160CLHV Amp draw (stalled) is only 1.8 Amps per John Beech, mechanical engineer and General manager at ProModeler.

http://www.promodeler.com/DS160BLHV (This is the brushless version for less than the cost of the MKS HV9767.)

Thanks again for the specs on competing servos.

This is a standard voltage servo setup so, if you plan on HV servos, choose an 80A esc that has a 7.4V BEC output. I use the ZTW Gecko 85A esc. Also, choose a lower KV motor so you can swing a 16" prop. Better to have that room to grow even if you primarily fly sport. I run the stock 500 kv motor. What servos are you going with?

I am not a 3D pilot, plan on using as a sport flyer. What do you guys think of this setup?
