Futaba S.Bus - Can I use a simple Y extension to expand the bus?

can I simply use a y-aileron extension or do I need a Futaba hub or terminal box?

...but only if you use S.Bus servos. With regular servos you need an S.Bus decoder(s)

Yes, verified it works with the Y. In my case, SBUS port on rx feeding Y can feed the SBD-1 decoder and any attached analog servo. You can even have the battery out there. Which would be useful in the case of a 2nd battery mainly.

The options for programming include the CIU-2, and SBC-1. You can use the rx but it is much less capable. I just went CIU-2 (USB dongle) which is the most capable since I like the system so far and plan to stay with Futaba.
