Help! Cox Lazy Bee Ideal Servo Weight?

Post  FSTP Thu Jan 28, 2021 5:31 am

Hey everyone,

I finished assembling my Cox Lazy bee but as stated in another thread the needle valve was bent. So while I wait for that to arrive in the post, I'd like to finish up everything else on the model. I was wondering if anyone has any advice on the optimal weight servos to use. I'm thinking I'm going to have to use something pretty torquey because the control surfaces are quite stiff. I've tried breaking them in but they continue to be quite stiff. IDK if that is a quirk of this model or if that is due to its old age. Worse comes to worse I guess I can remove the factory installation and install my own hinge system. But I'd rather not have to diminish its originality.


I can't find any ideal flying weights in the instructions so thats why I was wondering if anyone here has any experience with this.


Thanks,
Jess

Oh hmm, well I have tons of those laying around. For some reason I was thinking those were way to small considering the size of the servos cox used in their RTF versions. I was worried if I used to light a servo it maybe hard getting the right CG balance.

Honestly I was thinking something like the Hitec 32082S or even maybe slightly bigger.

Ok I'm just going to install some of the HS-55's and see how they do. The hinges on teh lazybee are pretty stiff so hopefully they have enough torque to overcome that stiffness.
