    Anybody have any experience with Blue Bird Servos? I'm looking into a set for my 60" 3D airframe... particularly the A207 model
    http://www.blue-bird-model.com/en/widevoltageservo/bms-a207.html
    Specs are awesome. 6v/.06/75 $47 which is comparable to some MKS-HV9767 (a little faster and less torque but half the cost) 6v/.09/94 $92
    Thoughts?

    Was just wondering, about how heavy do you think the airplane in this video is? About 18lbs maybe? Just trying to figure what a GP61 might do in an airframe I have. Thanks

    doh!

    just watched the video again and it says it right there at the beginning! 21 lbs.

    nevermind!
     

  5. Nick, I would go with the Hitec 5245mg on that plane, I have that airplane and those are what I use on it, I am not a big fan of Blue Bird servos, I have used them in helicopters before and lets just say I wasnt happy with the results
     
  6. The new line of BB's are nicer than the ones of years past. May give Chad @Rick dazzler a holler at TaildraggerRC. He can get you ironed out on those servos. I know that they are not a commonly stocked item on his shelf. But Im sure that he could get them for you, if you decided to go that route.

    I have had issues with Hitecs not centering well, which means chasing your trim.

    When I had my EF Laser 200, I flew Savox 1250s in it. That was when Chad dealt Savox servos. Never had an issue with them, HV, fast and powerful. Faster and stronger than the MKS, if I remember.....

    Thanks for the input @Bipenut53 and @Bunky.F.Knuckle I'm going to try out some new Savox HV servos SV-1260MG from @SupaTim 's NWRC. There are a little heavy, pricey (yet cheaper than MKSHV9767) and stupid high torque/speed on 7.4V let alone 8V. Overkill.... most definitely. :yesss: fun fun fun!

  9. The Savox are a good servo. I like the ones Im using, all 1270, 2270s.

    Thinking I might need to see a doctor, I've managed to burn a gallon of fuel and 9 flights on my 91" Slick the last 2 days- I never log that much, maybe that in 2-3 weeks :oblong::oblong::oblong::eek:

    Tomorrow we're flying the Yak :D

    Yup, most 91" airplanes come in right at about 21lb with the DA70. My 91" Slick is just a hair over 21lb with the DA70, the GP61 is a bit lighter so you'll probably see mid 20's in those size. The 88" airplanes are generally lighter at around 19lb.
