Would HS50's be good all around for the Trex? I think I am going to use the Hitec electron 6ch receiver with them.

Try Century CS2003
I use these all around on all my micro stuff.
ball bearings.
plenty of torque
and they are fast too, good for the tail.
very light.
the best thing they are only $19 at Heliworld.
They are 10x better contruction then the "Blue things" that fall apart.
I have about 20 of these and never ever stripped a gear.
Plenty of crashes too!

Century 2003s?
I can't seem to find them on the Centuryheli.com website. Can you provide more info and a link?

Is Century Heli the same as Heliworld?

Thanks,

Michael

IMO the HS56HB's are better on the tail than the HS50. They have better centering and are much stronger. The down side is they are a tad slower. But consider though with better centering your servo doesn't have to work as fast.

Looks like the JR S241's will do the job on the Trex:

Specifications

Torque: 17 oz-in
Speed: .18 sec/60°
Weight: .32 oz
Size: 0.45 x 0.87 x 0.85 in.
Ball Bearing: N/A
Motor: 3-pole Ferrite

I agree with t3k,
I've been using the JR 241's on my FP HB and now on my Trex. Small and powerful little servo. I haven't stripped any gears on these ever. I can't say that about the HS50's. I may even try the ne digital JR 281 on the tail. For some reason the GY-240 and HS50 isn't working for me. My tail response is way too slow...HH works fine but the response to my commands is way too slow. Maybe it's because I had to reduce the EPA on the tail servo. I'll try a smaller horn first and if that doesn't work I'm going to try a JR.

FYI - I'm running a Chili Pepper 3100 kv motor on the Rexy....looking for sport/duration setup.

This bird and the new Century 3D Pro I predict will be the 2 birds setting the standards/pace.

Regards,
Anthony

Art,
What battery are you using? I was thinking of the 2100mah Thunder Power Stick Pack, but dont want to overload the heli.

I'm using a PolyQuest 1800 (10C version to keep the batt temp down)
I'm expecting 12 - 15 min flight times with a 12T pinion on the Chili Pepper motor. I can't give an exact yet, all this damn wind should keep me grounded...but instead it keeps me waiting for replacement parts.. Maybe I'll learn my lesson? Hell no it's only money.

Art,
What receiver and ESC did you go with? The align ESC looks like a good buy if it works properly. And can the DS281 be used with a GY240 since its digital or do you need to use the 401.

twk,
I am using a Berg RX (5chnl, chanel 5 set to 6). The ESC is a CC Pheonix 25 (I have the Pheonix 10's on my to HB's and have the USB link that workds with both the 10 & 25) The 281 will work fine with the 240 but would work(talk) better with the 401.
I hope this helps,
Regards,
ant

Art-Tistic,

Do the JR Servo's screw into the Trex Frame or do you need to use mounting tape? I ask because the HS-56's and the JR's have different mounting screw hole posistions.

Thanks

t3k,
The 241'ss will fit with no mods whatsoever! As for the speed, The cyclic response on the rex is way too fast for me and I still have to choke back the throw using the TX D/R.

A bit of advise don't always beleive what you read when it comes to specs. Try to see a piece in action when at all possible. I bought several HS-56 when most people didn't even know they existed and I was shocked at how long they are and that the mounting pattern is not typical of a sub-micro servo. The idea of the karbonite gears is great but there is too much fuss to get them to fit. The 241's are JRs need I say more. They are more expensive then most others but I don't want to skimp on what controls the model.

Regards,
Ant

I have seen the jr241's in action and if you plan on doing anything other than hovering you will be dissapointed with them. Its true the HS56HS have a different mounting pattern but I have never found that to be a problem. They work well in my TREX and my SHOGUN... and they are very fast too boot... work excellent on the tail.

Thats what I figured. I had to go with an HS-50 on the tail because I couldnt find the JR Digital 281 in stock anywhere. I did pick up a Gy401 for 109.99 :-) Brand New.

How is that chilipepper motor working out?

I just got my Trex this afternoon and hope to spend some time tonight building it. Looks good but my decal sheet must have come off the line and put in a pile to quickly, the decals are all smeared.

Again let me say The Century CN2003
They are made for micro Helis, by a heli company.
I know the web site is not correct with part numbers.
My servo actually says 2033 on it. "but the package was CN2003."
Just give Heliworld a call, they are very helpful with there own products.
I am fortunate enough to live & work near Heliworld, there main distributer, so I just go to there store, and talk to the sales person, they always get me the right ones, and they are very strong & durable.
In the end you must make the final choice, that is right for you.
Check the specs. & compare the numbers.
I hope this helps.
