Hello,

What servos do you guys recommend for a Century Predator Gasser? I am willing to spend a little more $ to make sure I have god quality servos. Also, what gyro should I use?

Thanks,
Dino

personally

ds8311 JR servo's, LARGE airtronics servo wheels for CCPM, and FAST throttle servo (JR 8417 or futaba 9254), GV-1, stator gator pickup.

GY 601/9251 (I ASSUME the 611/9255 servo combo would work as well).

Ditto

Though someone needs to tell me why you need a fast servo for the gv-1. I don't believe the speed of the throttle servo will be an issue personally. I know many people "think" they need it, has someone ever proven it to be better?

SURE, Raja..BUT !!!

It WILL cost ya a "jewel"........

Just kidding.......

#1: I don't ALWAYS fly on the gv-1,
#2: in case of servo failure OR electrical failure, the spring in the carb can close the throttle ON IT'S OWN......provided the links are loose enough. BTW, this HAS been demonstrated by myself in public not so long ago.

#3. Cause it works good.

This might be a dumb question, but will JR servo's work with futaba receivers? I have always used Futaba and never looked into JR servo's.

Just answered my own question looking at ARAV8's gallery.

James - What are you using to make your rx case?

my "coffins"

I use a closed cell foam I get from work....its like 2 inches thick, used in commercial A/C insulation or as a packing foam for high dollar instruments. I cut it with a dremel and a cutoff wheel, split it with a hacksaw blade.

I can use 9001 servos? I don't do 3D but I fly for AP work.

I use the futaba 9252's and they're very nice on this ship. I tried the airtronics 94758's but the case is smaller than that for other servos and they pull out of the frame cutout's (cutout is too big).

AquiaUno,

I haven't run any calculations but off the top of my head AP work would be more stringent than 3D because you are always carrying the heavy load rather than subjecting the servos to high loads only for an instant.

I use the JR 8321 servos on my predator gasser...i give the machine a hard time, had no problems with these servos, On the throttle i use a standard JR 591 with stator gator....no problems there either. 50+ hours so far.
(think i read somewhere that 8321 is not a good CCPM servo but as i said no problems with mine.)
