For my new Stratus

I plan on
Radix 710's and 105's
OSHZ and SB20
8717's
Solid G and 8900
Scott Gray
Multigov

The electronics above are in my Vibe 50, I can't decide if I should use them or go with something else. Any reason I shouldn't run them,(besides their JR) It seems like MA guys are also Futaba guys.

I haven't decided on a battery yet, I've been running 2S 2500 lipos in my Vibe 50s with great success but I understand most guys are running bigger packs in their 90s, what should I get or should I go the Duralite route?

What special MA tools should I get, I have every other tool you can think of including a dial indicator, should I get a fan tool, head axle tool, etc...

What are the ball links like? Will my JR sizer work on them and are the links reversible or do the only go on one way.

That's enough ?'s for now.

Hi
I run 8717 in both my Stratusses
One with 6V Fromeco Arioana regulater Os91SZ Cline Viper, SB939.
The other with 8V Fromeco KIWI regulator, YS91SR Hatori SB19 AWESOME Power
Both CSM 720 Gryo, Revlock 20, and Smartcarb.
Flying V-blades and Torsion

Tools:
I use the stock Fan tool (MA #0546-21),
I have updated my fan tool so i can use it to assemble(disassemble) the open tail gear.

I made my own fan tool remover

I like the multigov, have never tried an ATG but I really like the Solid G so maybe its time to make a change, the only thing is then I need a tach, right.

I'll end up with every different paddle at some point, I like to try them all.

Knud, do you use that to pull the gear off the shaft, if so what holds the gear on, a roll pin?

What about the links, do I need a special sizer and are they reversible?

if you get the atg you don't need a tach, you can set the headspeed with the G-view and it is accurate to about 10 rpm.

Wingman, I didn't know you could do that, I thought you changed the rpm with an endpoint. Cool, I'm getting an ATG then, thanks.

Opti, I already have a receiver but that's a good option too.

My new question, how many mm's out on the servo arm/wheel does the ball go for the three cyclic's? Is it 20mm?

dude you will love the atg, it is the best governor out there. it is an active throttle governor too wich means it uses your pitch curve to tell when you slam the collective so it can respond before the head bogs. with mine I can go out and do ticktocks and fly real rough and the head speed will not change at all.

Ok, thanks for the info.

I'm now thinking of running the BLS451's. I like to drill my servo wheels so I can get everything at 90 without sub trim and the JR wheels are too small, that will force me to use a regular arm which means using some sub trim to get my 90's just right. Am I being to anal about this?

The MA links are directional, look at the link they have a taper low side out.

So how are you guys that run 8717's get your arm/horns square? Are you using sub trim or can you get the arm close enough?

I did buy some extra JR servohorn, and did switch them around until they was alokmost perpendicular.

Then i use some subtrim.

Note:
The horns, have a little number near the center, and each number are different in the degrees...

Well I ended up with this

Solid G/BLS251
ATG
BLS351's ($109.00 each at Tower using my discount)
OS HZ
Hatori SB20
Scott Gray
Radix 710's and 105's

I usually by all JR stuff but this time I though I would go with Futaba servo's.

I'll probably start a new thread once I get building
