another question here. hopefully some answers will arise. i did a bunch of research. i would like to use my spek dx8 on my vario ec135. turbine that i will build. can someone out there give me suggestions on which spektrum servos ( i am curently looking at the s6030) and which receiver to use with the servos. i think im set with the gyro 401 as suggested countless times in this site. also, will my 8 channel spek even work?? thanks again..

I am not familiar with the programs of the DX8, does it allow 4 servo 90 degree swashplate setup, as that is what is used on the EC.
You want a very good servo on the head. Any servo which produces at least 90 oz of torque should work fine. The GY 401 is also fine for the tail. You want a tail servo which has at least 140 oz of torque on this model, if not more.
8 channels is barely enough for this heli, with no extras.

it will allow four servo 90 degree swash set up, you have to use the mixing. I have that setup on my airstar mongoose with a dx8 and ar8000

here's the post with instructions that I used, it's the second to the last post on the first page by Adams
