    Just did a quick weighing of everything. Without wiring, including everything else she's coming in at 21 lbs., 8.4 ounces. Taking into consideration last minute nuts, bolts and hardware and harnesses, I should still be able to make under 25 lbs. This could be lots of fun with the "Dub" 70 up front.

    Ok everyone.... I am going to probably be making some changes to the setup that I originally planned for the Pitts. I had planned to install Hitec HS7954SH's throughout the plane, (except for the throttle). But I am now thinking that is going to be far more overkill than really is necessary. I believe in using components that will be much more than I need for a variety of different reasons. But honestly, 403 oz. per surface on a plane this size is about 4 times more than I really need. So, I have been looking at options. I have been considering using the HS 5665's throughout, including the throttle as I always do on everything else. But my main concern is centering accuracy. I purchased a full compliment of HS 5685's for a friends 30% Pilot Edge not long ago. We installed them and man, the centering was so terrible they couldn't even center with "NO" load on them. Not really sure what was up with them, as I have always been very impressed with Hitec servos. Plus I like the programmability of the Hitec servos. With that being said, I am looking for input on suggestions for suitable servos for this plane. Maybe @Xpress would be willing to chime in and give us some insight huh? Due to having my programmer, and about a million 24T spline aluminum servo arms...not to mention the customer service I have always received from Hitec, I want to stay with Hitec servos. What's your thoughts???

  10. I'd look at some of the MKS coreless HV servos.
