What servos for R50v2

What servos do you guys use for Raptor 50 (collective and cyclic) ?
I'd be most interested in Futaba servo recommendation.

Thank you,

Remy

I too like it alot! Though I've only flown the 50v2 one day, and that was to break-in the OS 50

As for the servos I have in mine;
They are 1x 9202 on pitch and the rest are 4x 9401's with a 401/9253 for the tail end of the bird.

I almost have a gallon through my R50/OS. I run the 9252's and 401/9253. Also have them on my R30/TT39 and would highly recommend if you can fit into your budget.

I've been a little conservative flying the R50 so far, but I'm sure it's going to be a blast. Gotta love the way it climbs!

I love it!! I'm running a 4131 on collective, digital 811's on fore and aft cyclic, 9253 on rudder and a 531 for throttle. Jason Krause set mine up last week and it flies nice!!

Raptor 50

I just finished tuning and breaking in my engine to perfection. Hopefully the good weather holds up so that I can toss it around the sky. Flying season is finally here!

I use a s9151 for the collective and s9252 x2 for the cyclic, and s9253 in combination with the 401 gyro.
For the throttle you should`nt use a servo slower than your collective!!!
I use a jr ds8041 digital standard servo on throttle.
And i LOVE MY RAPTOR 50V2. It`s a lot smoother than the r30v1 i have.....

Finndave:
the v1 is twice the ergo? Then you will have to be prepared to add some more numbers in your calculating when you try the v2!!
That`s my opinion, but i think i share it with some other out there!!

Really, I get twice the enjoyment and half the hassle from the R50 than the Ergo, and I like the Ergo

Will get a V2 50 as soon as I can, but that probably has to be after I've sold the Ergo.

The real joy of the V2 50 is it flies so goddam well and you can you can push yourself tyo learn new stuff and not fear crashing it as its so cheap to repair...

One guy has crashed his R50 V2 at our field about 4-5 times this week, and he has just repaired it, and gone out again...

The most expensive breakage has been the blades...
