Hi Dave, built up or foam wings and tail?

I have fitted a Hitec HS-225BB mini servo in the tail of my Pat Teakle ASW17 on 4.8v it does the job. I would go for a standard servo, probably with a ball race on the output shaft (the old JR591 running on 4.8volts was always my servo of choice but no longer available unfortunately), Hitec, Savox or similar, like the SG-0351 or SV-0320. 4 to 5kg of torque is more than plenty. High voltage/high torque servos weren't around when Pat was producing these and the standard Futaba 148 was more than adequate and reliable back then.

Thanks for the info Andrew, I will be using cnc foam panels.

I would have thought that either of the last 2 servo suggestions would be fine & are
smaller than the original Futaba S148 or S3001 types that Pat would have had available when the model was designed.
The old Futaba standard servos produced around 3Kg/cm torque.
