Thread: 5v or 6v servos
10/04/2018 10:43:50

I have 6v mini digital servos in my teksumo wing but Im just thinking this is wrong cause the bec is 5v ( i think ), any thoughts? should it be the 5v servo version, it all works fine though


edit   -  just looked again at spec - it says voltage 4.8 - 6v

there must be a clinical name for the emotions you feel when you put your fav model into the ground (or wire fence in my case)

Im so depressed

Thread: wot4 on floats
23/03/2018 10:46:45

Mmmm - had a test flight !! - looks like these blue foam floats are too heavy @ 530g compare to a white foam set @ 170g that I have (albeit a 100mm shorter), flight was very erratic.

17/03/2018 16:26:18


do the position of these floats look about right ?
