Default Finally getting a mini Comet

A buddy of mine has decide to sell me his yellow/red comet. He has Switch mains and yellow plastic tails. It has the comp motor and kit esc w/gov. He was using vbar/Vcontrol and I will be using a Neo/Vcontrol. He was even nice enough to throw in a lipo after we agreed on a price.


I'm thinking about using Torq CL0508 on the head and Torq CL0306T on the tail.


Any advice would be appreciated as black Friday gets closer.

I've know the guy for years and seen it fly, no wag.I'm still wondering about my servo choice.

Those are fine, would run them at 7.4v to get them max sped out of the tail servo. What would your concerns be?

I admit I only look at a few sections of the forum. I have not heard anything (other than when they were introduced) about them. I would like to use a quality/budget servo for this model. The options I've seen are: SAB, KST, and Torq. There me be others but these stood out.

I think it’s a Fireball not Mini Comet issue.

from memory I think the new torq's are made by kst although someone may confirm/deny that. I have been using the SAB servos on my oxy 3 for quite some time now and have not had a problem, touch wood. I have a set of kst 215's that will be using on a new oxy 3 build and while of not used them they seem to get ok praise.

I have a set of these on both of my 380's

Running both the swash and tail and pretty happy with them. Very nice finish on them. Maybe a little noisy but I don't seem to notice it much anymore. Would definitely buy them again.

When I had a fireball, I used one.. it worked fine for lower than ballistic head speeds.

Ordered:
(3) Torq CL0508
(1) Torq CL0306T
(2) SAB lipo's
(1) red aluminum back servo mount
(1) red aluminum front servo mount
(1) red tail blades
(1) servo links
(1) 18 tooth tail pulley


It came with one Pulse pack
I have already shortened the pack and esc wires and changed connectors. Sanded down the edges of the FBL mount. Drilled a hole in FBL mount for zip tie (elevator servo). I will also cut the elevator servo wire down. Not much to do on this model to tidy up the wiring.


I also replaced the silver finishing washers with red ones since I had them and they look so much better (especially with stainless screws). Not much pimping out you can do on this model. I just like to have mine look a little different than every other one out there.

Since it has been cold here, I took matters into my own hands. I backed the cars out of the garage and fired up the heater. I set up the esc gov and did a test hover. I only hovered in bank one but the tail was solid and not the slightest wag. Really looking forward to some nice weather so I can open it up.

Be careful when you crank up the headspeed. The manual says to turn down the gains by about 50% in the FBL. Good luck!
