Complete mental blockage_

How are we connecting 2 ali servos to 2 extensions out of the RX just using the normal 4 connections or are we using something special and secret?

M - who is shocked at the amount of extension leads I need to make

I use just standard servo plugs one for each & a safety clip on each

1 male & 1 female on each servo

I have something special a power box just because it was in there

thats cool thought that was the way but then saw the multiplex plugs and got lost in the world of males and females

O `ang on - So you mean you have one servo ending in a male and one servo ending in a female to avoid human error?

There is plenty of room for a powerbox in the fuz just not enough funds in the wallet lol,

If I'm using standard extensions I usually just colour code em with a dab of paint or tape

No, male plug on the wing (the servo plug) female on the receiver, as Brian says you can colour code them if you like, they were colour coded on Steve's old Yak, I think he got them from AshTek
