Im using the Arizona LI-ion packs 5600MA. I can fly for several weeks between charges. The charger I'm using is a AstroFlight Lithium charger bolted to a 12V 10amp power supply.
The fuel question. I buy it by the case from my local hobby shop.
I get a price break buying in bulk (3 cases on order).

Get rid of the 821's and get a Multigov instead of a GV1, otherwise looks good.

DS821 is for the throttle and needle valve not for the cyclic

Get a 770 instead of the 401. Ditch the switch and glow,guys at our field have been having problems with it.One guy messed up 2 pistons with it because it overheated the glow plug which came apart and distroyed the piston.

Doesn't matter, don't use those servos on a 50 unless you fancy trying to fly around with no throttle control or a burned up engine.

is that because of high vibration level applied ? or the load applied on them ?

Either the switch and glow is staying all the time or it's letting too much voltage to the plug and causing it to break the element off which is distroying the top of the piston. One guy is getting radio interference with it also because it's a switching type regulator which cause electrical interference.

we did , but i thought the load is the main problem since the cyclic take all the load from head, but actually i was surprised to hear that vibration can also affect them !! interesting

Little late for this post. I agree with BarracudaHockey. Get the MultGov Pro. You don't need a glow driver. The beast will fire.
I use a remote glow driver to light things up so I don't have to remove the canopy. The other question is. Are you setting up your ship for hard core 3D? Or just getting a bird in the air to fly for the first time. I fell into the trap as "learning to fly" to have all the goodies. Thats good if you have a real nice balance on your visa card. Get the ship to fly with the basics and then add the goodies. Your going to learn much more about the ship. I agree that a good servo combo is must and your asking the right questions.
WHERE ARE THE PICS OF YOUR BIRD
