Question

Batan 3.3 gram or BA 2.5 gram servos


If you were looking to lighten either the Batan 3.3 or BA 2.5 servos, which would you start with? Looking for an alternative to the Toki muscle wire servos, and if I could get either of those down to around 1.5 grams real weight I think I would be happy as they are half the price.

It's a lot of work to lighten them down to that VI, so maybe its worth the extra 12 dollars to get the muscle wire ones?

If you do want to lighten one of them - do the 2.5's. Hack the casing, swap the motor to a 4mm, change the leads to lighter gauge and you should be there.

I'm still thinking of the 4 channel Pitts, and the savings would add to a large amount having to buy 3 of the muscle wire servos. A few weeks ago someone had 3 of the Toki used for $25 each and I didn't jump on them, not so happy about that right now.

Of course that said and my first attempt at cutting out the Pitts plan had been poor at best. The wings are together nicely, but the fuse is not going so well. Hoping to figure out where I need to trim this weekend and get some progress.

They are only $27 new so you wouldn't have saved much anyway.

They are a little over $30 everywhere I have found them in the USA, hobbycity is not any cheaper... So Micheal if you have them for less I may have to get them from you (assuming I don't completely make a mess of the Pitts build). I really still want 4 servos in this plane, just 'cause I can.
