Which servos for my Highside slope soarer?
« on: March 12, 2018, 20:14:06 »
I need to buy some servos soon I think I want digital resin geared not ball raced ones at around the £5-£7 price range.

The size of them needs to be about like this: 

In-Wing Aileron servos:  Maximum size of the aperture in the wing is about 16mm deep ( thickness of the wing) , 78mm long (front to back) and 50mm wide, so I need two servos that are less than 16 mm wide , 78mm long and 50mm high.

The plans show the two servos for the elevator and rudder should be 40mm long and 30mm high.

I have tried to calculate the torque needed for them using  this calculator http://www.mnbigbirds.com/Servo%20Torque%20Caculator.htm

The results say I need 1.8Kgcm for the ailerons and 3 Kgcm for the rudder.

However as the tail is in two halves that are joined together, they have a fairly large V shaped notch out of them in the center.   So measuring the length and chord gives me a huge elevator surface and the calculator says I need at servo with nearly 9Kgcm of torque.  That can't be right....

The dimensions of the control surfaces are as follows:
Aileron chord: 40mm length 600mm
Rudder chord (Approx) 80mm and 230mm length
Elevator chord (Approx) 70mm length 570mm however this is the whole length and doesn't account for the V shaped notch in them which is about 130mm wide...

I don't really know how to calculate this but I have also gone with a nominal lenght of 220mm each side giving 440mm total length....

The calculator says I need a 4 Kgcm servo with these figures...Much more reasonable.

I have also guessed at about 45 MPH for its top speed, no idea if this in the right area for this glider.

Any suggestions as to which ones I should get?  I am probably going to get them from HK as I might also get another AXN floater jet/Clouds fly airframe from them and some other stuff so I can save on postage but I could also go to another supplier, I am not too bothered.

I thought it was designed for simple standard servos?

Only pics I have seen show std Futaba F-S148's dating from the Flintstone's era!

I have used the above in several slopers, the form makes mounting /replacing if necessary  easy.

Thanks Hover, that servo is just the ticket.  I think I need these slim wing servos. At 10 mm thick that gives me about 6-8mm head-room, any other form factor won't fit.  Have you got any suggestions for the elevator and rudder servos? 

The plan wants them to measure 40mmx30mm (width unknown), I think that's "standard" size isn't it?

looks good to me, thanks again.  I was looking at the analogue versions of these actually, didn't notice they were analogue or there was a digital version.  I think they should be powerful enough too  :crossfingers:

They are on the way!

Along with a new AXN floater jet fuselage https://hobbyking.com/en_us/floater-jet-epo-arf.html and a couple of these https://hobbyking.com/en_us/turnigy-nano-tech-1800mah-3s-65-130c-lipo-pack.html?wrh_pdp=1

I am going to make the wings and possibly the horizontal stabiliser removable when I build this AXN.   They were fixed on my "version one" (which has been beaten-up severely).

Its such a nice thing to fly I intend to take it away in the camper van  so I need to be able to store it easily and be able to put it together quickly and easily.

I might use multiplex 6 way connectors of something similar for the wing servo connections and something like magnets or rubber bands and stick on hooks to hold the wings on with.

I need to figure out the finer points of how its going to work.  There are lots of build tips tricks and mods for this kit out there to look at.
