i just used a seperate channel on my rx.... i dont trust those reversers, you have to adjust them every time temperature changes and its just a headche. i recomend a reversed servo if you have no extra channels. or there arre plenty of youtube videos showing how to reverse them yourself...

Thanks all for the input and direction. I'll look into the suggested links. I'd prefer going the reversed servo route but can't seem to find any in stock anywhere and don't feel very confident in doing the reversing of a servo myself.

My experience has been quite the opposite. I bought a servo reverser from Horizon Hobbies and I haven't done a single thing to it, other than installation. It's been perfectly fine for me so far.

Ya I've never had a problem with em either. Like em because when you don't need that servo reversed on another surface or airframe you just unplug. So you get the best of both.

Consider using a mixer as an alternate. There have been different electronic methods to reverse a servo but mixers by virtue of there function generally has the more reliable methods.
They are affordable and simply used with one channel do a great job. Just a thought.

Many Thanks

Just want to thank all who added input about servo reverser or reversed servo. Haven't dug into it yet but I'm sure I'll find something now (this evening). I'll post what I finally decide to go with and results (good or bad).

Thanks again guys...

I went with the servo reverser from HK (thanks JGUILTY). May get reversed servos as well just so I have them in case my feelings change.

thanks again all for advise/input.
