Just preordered mine....which tail servo?
« on: October 11, 2017, 04:08:30 PM »
Hello all!

Just preordered my 516 from Amain....

I know many are using the MKS9767 for cyclic. What should I use for the tail servo?  Also having trouble finding a CGY750 in stock anywhere.....

I just realized I've got a Futaba BLS251 laying around from a TREX 600.  Might use that, but may go all new on this heli!

Thanks for the recommendation Josh....(Is this the Josh from Denver I met this past weekend)?

That may have been Josh Moen, at Matt's? I have the hbl980 in one of my 516s and a bls256 in the other. Both are fantasy.

I too am using the HBL980 and it works like an absolute champ in the model.  Tail holds like a vice even in strong winds..........  I agree with Mr. Cherry, it's fantasy :)

Marcus,
You use a Regulator for  the BLS251? IT is limited to 6v. I am using a bls256hv I had sitting around, but those are hard to find .

The BLS251 was pulled from a helicopter I bought off of Craigslist, never flew, and just harvested parts and electronics.  I'm going to go with one of the other recommendations here!

Thanks guys,
Marcus

P.S. Is there a way around the "verification" at the bottom of these posts?  Most annoying ones I've ever seen....

Just make sure you pay attention to the voltage on your choice. What ESC are you running?
