I bet the extra 5 grams are the screw to lock it down in place with the small brass fitting. None the less they are pretty good servos. I have a bad run in with them the first week they were released, a few months later I picked up a DX6 (freshly stocked in a store) and left the s75s sitting on the side for 7 months. Finally about a month and a half ago I installed them into a Stevens Aero STIK and I am loving them for the most part. They are a little noiser than some other servos, but they work good now.

Ahem...... My TM weighs in at 11 oz and flies great with the stock motor. Sure, it only goes up to 25 ft. ..... but it does fly.

Hey all,

Two questions I'm hoping someone will answer for me:

What diameter carbor rod for pushrod use?

What paint sticks to clear cowl material?

Thanks for any advice!

I made my maiden fly




Yeah Bugs Bunny and me maidened the Tiger Moth yesterday

We reached for the sky four times. Three times launched from the hand.
One time right from the ground (lost a wheel right after leaving the ground lol made a secure landing afterwards in high weed).
Bugs did even one looping.
The fourth times during approach a swift wind took the moth and smashed
it into the ground. Only one motor mount broken and some bent ears (Bugs is still complaining...).

Greetings

Congrats on the maiden! Bugs will learn about flying in the wind. A few carrots will probably make him feel better.

On the Pico TMs I've used .060, .070 and .080 CF rods. IMHO the .070 rods are the best bet. The .060 will work, but will also bend a little on the push side under load, whereas the .070 stay pretty stright, even under considerable pressure. The .080s are fine, but add a couple of grams of extra weight and are a little overkill in the strength department for such a short length.

Congradulations on the maiden! That last counts as a landing, not a crash. They say any landing you can "hop" away from is a good one.

plato,

Are you sure Bugs is on the "up and up" , and not just one of those pilots who in flight school said, "I just need to learn take-offs and flying, I don't need to learn how to land"?
