I have two Aileron servos, two Elevator servos, two Flap servos, two Retract servos, one Rudder servo, and one Throttle servo. I use a 2500mah 2cell LiFe Rx battery and a 2500mah 2cell LiFe Ignition battery (with 5v regulator).
I have a JR Matchbox on the Elevators and another on the Flaps. I have used Y Harnesses in the past and encountered enough anomalies that I will never use them again when I can use Channel Mixing or a Matchbox, instead.
Never use 4.8v Rx batteries with 2.4 Rx's. It is well documented that servo load can cause the Rx battery voltage to drop below critical and cause a Brownout on any manufacturer's 2.4 Rx. I have never had a Brownout on any of my aircraft and I have been using JR/Spektrum Rx's since 2007.
With your 11X, you could connect every servo to a separate channel and avoid using a Y Harness. I am limited with 9 channels.
Hi, thanks for your comments. I limited with 9 channels to. I think I will use a Matchbox (for flaps and ailerons).
Can you please tell me what servos you are using on your plane?
