Emile - Thanks for the info, I am going to have to look into incorporating a "squat switch" into the gear. I'm thinking maybe some sort of micro switch or something. Anybody have any ideas?

Barry-Thanks I've also thought it would be a cool detail to do but I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to pull it off. I basically tried to copy the mechanism from the full size from what I could gather from photos. The turnbuckles on the outboard struts being adjustable is what made it possible.

Sean - Mechanics are awesome! The positioning of them is going to work out really well with the tail alignment. I added a clutch for the cool spool up effect. Now all I need are some low profile HV servos but my budget isn't ready for that cause the only ones I can find that are suitable are the JRPSMP91T2 that are $180 a piece!

I was hoping to make it to Dalton for a little "show & tell" and to get some pointers but I'm not going to be able to make it this year. I'm really going to miss hanging out with everyone.

Thinking about servos and looking for advice...

How much torque is required for the cyclic servos? I am planning on having a HV system running on 2s lipos and I am just wondering what do I need for a four blade head with 950mm blades on a helicopter that's probably going to weigh around 40lbs? The mechanics require a low profile servo and the ones that were recommended have 300oz(21kg) at 7.4volts. But there are some out there that have 140oz (10gk) at 7.4volts that are significantly less expensive. Don't want to cut corners to save a buck but is all that torque really required?
