I am still using the stock servos for cyclic Futaba 9551. Using a BLS251 on the tail. I got the blades from Germany. They are 840mm Semi-symmetrical. I haven't weighed them, but they don't feel any heavier.
I bought a whole 'nother airframe for parts plus all the spares I was able to get from Airstar before they disappeared.

Hi strong looking blades , I imagine there is no flex in them so your cyclics would be very locked in , I am in the mind I am going to put 10 kg servos in ,I feel the cyclics would be more firm than the jr 6 kg wich came with the goose what you think ,

I agree, the Mongoose with its "straight to swash" cyclic servos needs the strongest servos you can afford.

He was voted in by the majority. The minority is just really vocal.

It probably looks worse viewing the news, than it really is. The news media lies like a rug, and you cannot believe much of what they twist around. Especially CNN.

I wouldn't call putting an Align gyro on a Mongoose an upgrade, but I guess they are dependable enough. I have been playng with a low headspeed Miniature Aircraft Razor.
Trump is doing fine, the entrenched money suckers are just scared that there house of cards is coming down. That includes the media.

BeltFedBrowning I found for me 1300 is around a good speed , if you have been flying 90s then you would be used to excitement, 1450 is lively , it's a taist thing and what works best ,
