I know, I know, I know,..

Give me heat about this one I know...but here it goes...

I have a Rap 50...with extended tail boom. and a TT50H.

I am running a GY240 on a JR537....(I know it has a very slow response time.).Can't I make the servo arm longer to make up for the slowness a little or is it the other way around....make the servo arm shorter???

Thanks

Make the arm longer and reduce the ATV so it doesn't bind and the EFFECT will be a slightly faster servo, assuming the servo has enough torque to handle the longer arm. Make sure the linkage is smooth with no binding. Hope this helps.

Also, I was wondering...Could I run say something like a JR8700G on that gyro? Or do I need to stay with a futaba servo on my gy240?

With the GY240 I have found that the Hitec 525 works the best. At $30 you cannot go wrong.

You can use a JR servo on the Futaba gyro. Generally speaking, the faster the T/R servo, the better. I have been told, however, NOT to use a JR DIGITAL servo on a Futaba gyro, so I'd suggest you talk to Futaba about that.
