RC Flight Chatter / Re: Best standard servo?
Last post by paulinfrance - November 16, 2020, 12:33:45 pm
I install Futaba 3003 in my planes under 10cc, and maybe a 3001 on the elevator and rudder, Corona 939/929 for Ailerons, over that size ( 20cc + petrol )3001 and 3010's with 3003 for ailerons, I have lost teeth ( carbonite and metal geared )with Hitec servos with the vibrations from Rcgf 20cc petrol engines, so far the Futaba servos are still ok.

I have sky sport but I wish they had dai coulthard as the commentary team instead of the bunch of inane idiots, martin brundle aside, who commentate for sky.
I'll have to go back to the procedure I adopted when murray walker was commentating, viz mute the tv and put the radio on 5 live for some non hysterical commentary.

I'm soldiering on with a mix of futaba s148, s3003, 3004 3001 3152 and hitec 322 and 422. When I bought new I got corona hv digital metal geared of 22 grm weight.
They all work ok with futaba 2.4 fasst rxs and 2 cell life batteries. This is one of the disadvantages of not having an open source tx, everything works out of the box so there's sod all to fiddle with.
AS hobbyking seems to be going tits up any new servos I'll buy will be from the servo shop which does good on a box of 10 hitecs.
Planes are all IC with up to 26cc gas and glo engines.

My wife had already come in the lounge while I was watching the French Moto GP riders walking in the kitty litter,  ;D saying my British friend had won the car race,,

So I only hope PDR doesn't take the dig too seriously,,

Are your receiver's HV ( high speed ) ones for digital and not anagogic servos ?.

RC Flight Chatter / Best standard servo?
Last post by Dave_S - November 16, 2020, 10:24:00 am
I've had a few years away from the hobby, and things have changed in my absence. I have several models of traditional .40-.60 size (though now sporting the electric equivalents). All well and good, but I am unsure of the current recommendation is for standard servos - I have bought about a dozen HiTecs (311, 322, 425) which seem to work, but the 425s all chatter and twitch to an unacceptable degree. I am using FrSky Taranis radio, but have tried different receivers and the chattering remained.

So, the question is - what is your choice of standard servo these days? Just want some servos that are reliable, not too expensive, and easily available. I'm not bothered by the make, though Futaba are a pain as I'd have to modify the plugs (it doesn't take long, but I can think of better ways to spend my time!)

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

He was almost certainly going to win the championship anyway, but there's a difference between winning and wining in style. In an uncompetitive car, on a track with less grip than Donald Trump's legal team, choosing his own strategy against the views of the team, from 6th on the grid to a lead of over 30 seconds through his absolute mastery of tyres and race-craft where others failed.

Amusingly, people who were watching/reading/talking about the race on internet feeds have reported Googleads [etc] seem to be pushing a lot of adverts for on-line casinos offering "free spins"...

Decided to be lazy, or should that be efficient with my efforts?

First set up will use the supplied Molex to JR conversion leads into a 4g Spektrum Rx.  That'll mean that the ailerons and flaps will each be controlled by a single channel each.  So no  clever mixing like crow.

IF (and I do mean IF!) the plane flies beautifully I'll rewire it to allow the use of a 7 channel Lemon Rx with stability control.  That'll give will independent control for each of the 4 servos in the wing AND smoothing.
