Question
Parallel Connectors? where to buy them??

Hello

Anyone know where I can get a "parallel" servo type connector?
Something like this, but the connectors would be a servo type(ie...Futaba J)connector.

I'm trying to use 2x- 3s 2500mah Lipo to power my Futaba 9c.

Your links don't work but this is simple enough to make. If you have a soldering iron and some heat shrink it would take about 5 min.

www.cheapbatterypacks.com makes custom wires. Very easy and inexpensive.

Most radio manufacturers have them, so most model shops will sell them. Here's a selection http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...%2Fb%3Eharness

abenn,

that "Y" harness will have a 'series' effect (increase in voltage),?
Im looking for a 'parallel' version of what you posted :-)

thanks for the Link bud:-)

No, all the harnesses in my link are parallel. There is no such thing as a series servo harness because normal servos won't work in series. Plug two servos into these, and the other end (small plug) into your receiver, and both servos will react exactly the same when you give some stick input.

abenn,
thanks, that makes sense, so I guess a 'regular' Y servo harness will work for me.
Wow, I learn something new everyday.
Thanks much abenn:-) :-)

I've just re-read your original post and realised you'll be using the harness to parallel two batteries in your transmitter. No problem, regular Y-servo harnesses are correct for what you want to do
