Glad to see a new thread for a new machine.
I'm interested to see how this goes. Especially with servos too.
I'm talking with George right now on a Raptor32 that I plan to outfit with some servos and Gecko controllers. I'm planning to use a 400 oz/in servo from MCG http://www.msitec.com/vendors/MCG/PDF/ID23005.pdf and a the Gecko controller assembled by Dan Mauch at Camtronics.
Please post a lot and w/ lots of pics. I know I can't get enough and manytimes there is a new method or tweek that you see that was not thought of before.
Good luck with your build.
