My on again, off again free flight project is almost done, and I had
this crazy idea to add 2 servos and see what a rubber band powered RC
plane would be like. Since I have never dealt with any of the micro RC
stuff before I am looking for suggestions. The kit I built is a Herr
Engineering J-3 Cub with 35.5" wing span. I was thinking of using the
Hitec HS-50 servos and the Hitec Feather 4-channel receiver with 2 3V
Lithium coin cell batteries to power it. I was wondering since this
will probably be just my first step into micro RC, if maybe I should
invest in a better receiver, or will the Hitech's 1000' MAX range be
fine for these small birds?
