I came up with this procedure the other evening. Knowing I was going to do the conversion from one CZC fuselage to another, I was concerned about routing the Y connector leads for the flaps and ailerons. It's a pretty tight area. But I found what I think is a pretty simple solution.
You need one 12" JR servo extension (others may work but I had the JR on hand)
The procedure goes something like this. Feed the bottom end of one Y connector into the right hand slot with a slight bend in the wire about 1/2 inch or so from the plug. Wiggle it a little and get it donw into the fuse. Put one of the female ends into the clip on the blue plastic wing base. Now take the other lose female end of the Y connector and feed it into the fuselage. Reach in through the front battey compartment and help pull it into the fuselage, being very careful not to dent the area around the battery hatch/windshield.
Now go to the left side of the fuse and feed in the male end of the 12" servo lead. You'll need a litttle bend in the wire about 1/2" or so to help it drop into the vertical slot inside the fuse. Once you have that done, you should have enough slack in the Y connector and enough length in the servo lead to pull the two ends into the battery compartment and plug them together. Now you can pull on the female end of the servo lead with your left hand while you help feed the wire up into the vertical slot in the inner fuselage by inserting your hand back in through the...Continue Reading
