    Yea, you can change the voltage to 6.5. You're right man... These servos have a ton of torque, and I really only do IMAC style flying. Occasionally I'll do my special trick the "Scrambler" which is just some crazy snap rolls mixed with a flat spin over and over or something... hahaha!

    That's some great flying!
     
  3. Cool so your going to have mechanical torque as well!

    Your setup will be pretty much bullet proof with what you're doing. The 7954's will be more than enough regulated. 333 oz. each @ 6.0 volt. Over 660 ounces on each aileron is plenty. I use 2 on each aileron on my SD 260. Never had any issues with any of the serovs. Plus, since you are using the EQ-6 and Relion 5200's, you will have enough to fly an entire weekend.

    Awesome! Bulletproof is what I'm going for!

    As most everyone has discovered, simple and sparse...(so to speak) is the way to go. Less to fail, less to maintain, less to worry about. Logical.

    Be sure to get good aluminum servo arms like those from SWB Mfg.

    Did you mention you were going to use the 8711 on your rudder?

    Yea, I'm going to order the same arms that are on there now. I think they're SWB.

    When I bought the plane it came with a JR 8711 installed with the pull-pull system. Had I built the plane new I was going to use 2 servos with direct arms... which I could still do because the PAU has the spots already cut, but I haven't decided... I don't do 3D only IMAC, and I don't mind pull-pull

    8711's are a great servo. I ran mine off lipos :)
    If they bounce around center alot do the fuzzy velcro mod.
