Analog and digital servos together
I am starting to finish (I know oxymoron) a plank that was started 12 years ago but never completed. Some servo issues have me wondering about this issue.

All those years I have flown planks, I only used analog servos. Since I've gotten started in helis, I've only used digital servos. Looking at digital servo specs, I have an idea to put a couple mini JR digital servos on the ailerons (the plank is a Sig Ultimate profile fun fly) as they are so much stronger, quicker and lighter than the old analog servos I have. But I was going to use the standard analogs I have on rudder, elevator and throttle.

My question is has anyone mixed analog and digital successfully? I'm going to be running a Spektrum RX with my DX8.

Thanks for the input.

I have done it on planks with no issues at all. I would use a Lipo for the RX battery and get a BEC.Your not an expert because you seen it!!

Many people have run hs65s and other analog cyclic servos with digital tail servos in older 450s for years without problems.
