what were they thinking but the rx and servo's right in the path of fuel overflow? Has anyone has issues with this? Its kinda hard to protect the rx or put it in a bag since there isnt much room and the wires wouldnt quite fit... Anyone have insight into this?
Sorry to hear you got a kit packed on a Monday morning As for Rx and servo being subjected to fuel, I put my Rx in a baloon and acctually never have had a problem with it or with the Servo for fuel spills. Most Rx will fit inside a baloon and all the wires too, you just need to plan for it. I have used both Novak and Futaba Rx:s with no problem. The wires can be bundled up neatly together and tuck to the die of the Rx, or you can fit them in under the upperdeck, between steering and throttle servo. All this said, if you ask Michael Salven, he did get his day ruined when someone fuled his Rx in the 710 at winternats.....

If I had a limited budget, I would invest in good servos and a normal Tx/Rx.
No the 3-PK (from rc-mushroom) does not come with any servos

this is what i use when in a long final, I know it is a bit crude but it protects from over flow of fuel on to electrics

If you say the 710 has very limited space, wait till you see the G4 ! This is a pic taken and posted by Rene Cornella.

For oneway front and rear ball diff setups, you can take a peek at the following;

http://www.mytsn.com/setups/setup.asp?sid=2434
http://www.mytsn.com/setups/setup.asp?sid=2384

For the front ball diff on the 710, Rene's setup in Brazil looks pretty good.

Look at the FAQ. I believe there is some write up there that I posted earlier on. You need to shorten the linkage from 44.5 mm to somewhere like 39 or 40 mm. It involves some cutting.
