No Y harness necessary if you set up elevon mixing on your transmitter . One servo plugs into the aileron channel and the other into the elevator channel . Are you ready to do that yet ?

Oh hey one question...do you have maybe an estimate of how much flight time i would get with the dynam combo you linked along with an 8x6 prop and a 500mah 7.4v lipo?

Depends on how much throttle you're using . I'm guessing maybe 5 min. of aggressive flying and maybe 10 min. of easy cruising around . If you're using a 7.4v you might want to go with a 8x4 or 8x3.8 prop . Also next time you buy more batteries , go for some 11.1v batteries with the highest c rating ( 30c or 40c ) you can get . I get all my batteries ( Sky Lipo ) from Hobbypartz .

If you look at the info ( right on top of the video ) for that Dynam combo , you'll see that it says that it will run on a 2 or 3 cell lipo . It also says 1300 kv , which is rpm's per volt . So if you run it on a 2 cell ( 7.4 volts ) you'll get 9,620 rpm's from the motor . If you run it on a 3 cell ( 11.1 volts ) you'll get 14,430 rpm's from the motor , so basically 50% more power .

But always check the info when you buy a motor or ESC to see the cells (voltage ) it can handle .

Should be OK . Just check motor/ESC to make sure they're not too hot .

forgot to ask you; how easy would you say it is to fly your DTD? My experience when it comes to flying is the ember 2, champ, micro t-28, and flyzone sensei. Would i be able to handle it?

The DTD is not high wing and has no dihedral so it is not self righting , but if you keep it light it should be able to fly slow enough to keep under control . Start with the CG slightly forward , and move it back ( a LITTLE at a time ) if needed .
I would suggest low rates to begin with , and if possible have someone experienced trim it for you on that first flight ( start with both elevons SLIGHTLY up , with the right elevon SLIGHTLY higher than the left elevon ) .
There is no rudder , so it's " bank and yank " . To make a turn you initiate a bank with ailerons , then yank on the elevator to complete the turn .
If you have already built the paper airplane airframe , try that one first - it will be easier to fly than the DTD , especially if you put some dihedral in the wings .
