I Think Barry Rules again !!
But the show will be good

By lightweight servos you mean you used the 9550 servos for both steering and throttle?

Yeah, that's the problem. When everybody starts to get the 710, then the competition would be on the same level of playing field !

Ok, I'll admit I'm lazy !

Anyway, if you look at the way the original Serpent mounting of the flyweights, it was meant to be made imbalanced anyway with just one side of the flyweights being pivoted. Well, in any case, no harm trying to balance the weights out by drilling another hole on the other side.

That's true. Unless you use the same switch as what team Serpent USA uses or what Michael uses, then you should be using the servo extender as a switch.

Woow, that's pretty direct ! I would say I'm guilty so far as posting on the R40 thread ! But then again, I post there to correct some of the "misconceptions" Harry has on the 710. Nothing more !

I think if you have read the mytsn 710 forum, I believe it said somewhere that it will be in a few weeks time.

Well, it's nice to see 3rd party options. But I think we should also take their durability with a pinch of salt !
