I just checked he doesn't have the servos or the props up yet.

You try putting your ailerons on a mix to raise them 3/4 inch to do 1 handed flat spins yet? Fun stuff.

Ya full rudder and 3/4 to full throttle. Its a slowly descending flat spin but gives you a chance to scratch yer nuts or take a drag on a ciggy while you do it. Lotta fun.

Actual measurement is 3/4 inch to top of trailing edge of aileron from the top of the servo tunnel. I found it out by mistake but liked it so threw it on a mix switch.

Ok right, you are about 1/4" above where they should be all the time i think.. i'll have to measure mine.. BTW on that post how did you get those thrust numbers? every time i measure it the ep10x6 (they call them EP not HD now right?) and 10x3.8 (or 4.7) the thrust is about the same but the amps are 1-2amps more for the apc?

Not a Sabre but a Spaz design same series plane. Here's a short video of me flying my Scap and 3DRookie flying his Primo 15 trying to decapitate the stupid little foam doll that rides around on my plane. Long long story about the doll.

Has anyone successfully used nylon gear HS55 servos in this plane without any problems?

I like this plane but i do not want to spend 100.00 for 4 servos. I also do not want to use nylon servos and crash because i was cheap.

Please help.

they will fly it just fine, setup your linkages so you have at the most 40deg each way with the max travel setup at the tx.. also valuehobby.com has some cheap MG servos, any of the 9 to 13 gram servos can be made to fit

Would you consider this a good 3D trainer? Or is it more post 3D training phase?

You would be ok with them if you follow Spaz's advice on the setup.


If I were you I'd look into the Valuehobby MG mini servos, there much cheaper and I've been flying them with great success in a much larger and heavier EPP foam plane.





As far as the 3D trainer thing,... Profiles are the way to go on that. Reason being that on low rates they tend to be more docile than most planes, then on high rates they just blow your mind!

Add to that the post crash fixes on a Profile plane are much easier than on a fattie and your looking at a good trainer.
