I was at the field today between 14:00 & 15:00 all on my own , good flying too. There is a dead sheep along the fence line towards the gate from the pits, I saw the farmer so reported this to her. I hope no one had plans for a BBQ Smile .

Should be fine, as Miss Barnes says. One thing to watch out for, is that you plug the leads in the right way around. Futaba plugs have a little tag on one side to polarise them, whereas the JR plugs don't have the tag, but have chamfered edges on the plug.

Also don't forget you cant use a Futaba/Hitec charger for a JR or Spektrum TX or vice versa. The polarity is reversed.

Generally they have the same centre pivot movement, however the servo arm is alot shorter which will not gives as much throw for the flying control surface (small traversing arc). Also in terms of "power output" a mini servo may not be upto the required power capacity (there are some mighty powerful ones) Rolling Eyes Mini servos are genenerally only for use on small light aircraft where power requirement is not important due to the forces on the flying surfaces being low. I do however run mini servos on auxiliaries (air valves) on lagre aircraft for example, as power is not importnant.

Welcome indeed!

I'm not entirely sure whereabouts in Gwynedd you are based (Only been in Wales for 5 years myself, and I'm terrible at directions!), but if you need any help setting your new models up, or want any advice, then feel free to shout on here! I know I am always happy to help out where I can, and I think most people are like that too. If you want to pop along to the club and see some of out "toys" in the flesh, then again, just shout up!

Cheers
