    Super sky surfer 2000

    First of all, thanks for fast shipping, all my orders have got here very fast. My question is that i just got a super sky surfer 2000 kit. I ordered the kit because i have a ton of spare parts lying around and i wanted to use them to build the plane. I have motors, esc's, micro, standar and large servos,etc. but any of my servos fit on the plane, taking measures its look like i need a 28mmx30mmx12mm servos, a little bit longer than the micro servos and smaller than the standar servos.

    What brand and model of servos fit on this plane??? Thnks

    I am away from home so I dont recall which servos I bought as replacements.

    What i can tell you is that I did not like the internal placement of the servos for elevator/rudder. I moved both servos into the tail boom just ahead of the rudder. I replaced the control horns as well as switche to z bends for push rods to control rudder/elevator.

    I also now have a ton of space for spare batteries and gear in the old servo tray location.

    Also I found the plastic hinges to be a detriment to the flexibility of the control surfaces. If you are going to have a rotation axis dictated by the foam joining points, the plastic hinges must align with that axis as well. Mine did not. I yanked all the hinges, detatched the surfaces, and installed multiple CA plastic hinges. No binding now and servos dont complain nearly as much.

    I bought the PNP kit and should have gone the bnf kit. My esc would go into protection mode if I used the ailerons. Had a spare esc and swapped it out, no issues since.

    Plane did fly well on its maiden. Only have one flight so far so dont have COG set perfect butcoming into a slight head wind it landed the best of anything I own. Think it is the giant non folding prop. Come in on glide just short of stall with minimal power then cut power and it stalls and drops on command.
