OK. Do they sell a 4 to 1 servo connector?

I think my harness for my stuka flaps is bad. Not even sure what you would call it. 4 servos to one channel.

I need a resource.

Alternative...3 double Y connectors. 1 for each pair and then another 1 to connect them together!

You are welcome.

Great can't seem to find them online anywhere.

My F-86 is missing the plywood mounts for the wing also.

Well I figured it out. I purchased Hyperion extensions and apparently they aren't working with my quad connector. I thought it was unlikely to have 4 bad servos or extensions so I assumed it was the 4 to 1 connector. It looks like one of the pins in all 4 of the female ends of the extensions is bent. Opps. Not impressed with the Hyperion extensions.

Ricky D how much do I owe you for the new o rings?

That is odd, I use Hyperion extensions, and have never run across such a problem. What servos were you using?

HTX900's

Looking at them a bit more it looks like all the pins are sitting in there a little skewed. Maybe the cheapo servos don't have the proper angle to allow them to easily side in. Cheap to cheap in the future I guess.

What the punch in the arm?

Oh and thanks for the controller. Works great. The bad channel is pretty odd. Really dim.

Acutally, the $20 I pulled out of your wallett when you were punching me in my arm.

IMO, all servo leads are a standard pitch. I don't know what you got but something went wrong somewhere. Are you sure someone did not plug them into a plug and pulled out sideways OR, more likely, have you ever crashed a plane? If so maybe these servos were pulled from the RX at an angle upon impact? LOL

That would be my guess also, I have used HXT900's with the Hyperion extensions with no problem. If you ask me you get a very good extension at a good price compared to the other leading brands. (Victor is not compensated in any way for his product endorsement)

Crashed me?? No way. It's really odd. The same pin on all the extensions are smashed or bent off to the side. 1 of them pushed thru the connector.

Has everyone seen the new darling of Airliners.net?

PLL LOT Boeing 767 lands safely despite landing gear failure (0 min 54 sec)


This is the signature Barrett Hochhaus 767. It takes 85 people to hand launch it. -_-

I saw the stills, but man they really greased that landing, it was a thing of beauty.
