Y-cables are still always good to have.

Imagine you have a few more chanels you need for lights and sound effects or whatever and there you would use a Y-cable to have that spare chanel you need.
I would always need to have a working Y-cable as you save quite a bit of work, which might not even be right and be on the safe side with the connections

If you have a programmable Tx, you can use another channel for the aileron. If not, you could reverse the servo like this:



pointing the servo arm in the other direction will change travel direction.

I think (DON'T trust me) servos can be paralelled, (red to red, black to black, white to white) I'd like someones confirmation. (DON'T trust me)

If the servo arms are facing from each other that shouldn't happen...
That's my experience anyways.
If you were to do let's say elevator from 2 parts(each controlled by a servo) then you would have to reverse one.

Good. You have the plugs?
no ... thinking in a way to do it ... my computer plugs are either male 2 pin conectors or 3 pin CPU Fan like .. so i cant use them for this ...

need 2 female + 1 male servo conectors.

i have some 20 years old full sized (47g) futaba/airtronics servos, im thinking of snipping the male conector from 1 of them(for the receiver) and just hot glue the other bare wires to the servo pins.

i guess you guys are right ... if i want to remove it, just de-solder them .....

( i suck at soldering; or either my soldering iron + solder - solder gel (dont have it) sux )

Homemade Y cable V2;

three 20-year-old full sized servos sacrificed their life for the cause .... (borrowed cables and conectors)

I soldered the tips in parallel then soldered to the conector, then I did a shrink tube finishing.
