Question

Spektrum radio compatability with reversing Y harness?


I am building a Hangar 9 Twin Otter for a friend and I have run into a snag. The elevator uses two separate servos, 1 for the left and 1 for the right side. When they are installed as per the instructions and using a regular standard Y harness they elevators move in opposite directions.

I am getting mixed answers about the advisability of using a reversing Y harness with a Spektrum radio to make them move together in the same direction.

My question is, is it Okay to use a reversing Y harness with a Spektrum radio system? If not why not?

Any light you could shed on this would be appreciated. Thanks.
