Flap/Aileron wiring connectors?


What is your prefered connector for "automatic" connection of flap and aileron wiring?

How do the male/female plugs mate correctly when there is dihedral on both joining surfaces?

Thanks for your response.

My preference is not to have automatic connection. It is just something else to mis-align and then get broken in a rough landing. I prefer loose wires which plug together and then get shoved into a recess. I just think it is more reliable than fixed connectors on each wing half, or from wing to fuselage.

I agree not to have automatic connections. On my builds one half is fixed but the other half is loose with a little extra wire.

A few days ago I posted an entry in my build thread for a harness for dlgs that I am building that might be useful here. Check out the site:

I hope that this helps.

Mounting plates?


Anyone have a source for multiplex 6 pin mounting plates?

Are plates available for both male and female plugs?
