Default Male-male extensions

I need some of these and cannot find anyone who sells them. Yes, I could make them myself, but do not want to buy the supplies.

Does anyone know where I may purchase this item or have them made?

Thanks

I severely doubt any company produces these, there's just no practical use.

You might try Hitec. A male/male cord is included with the servo programmer. The cord is used to charge the internal battery.

Not sure which supplies you want to avoid buying. If you've already got a soldering iron and solder, or know someone who does, it might be quicker to just buy two leads with single male connectors and solder them together. Places like Balsa Products http://www.balsapr.com/ have them for less than $2 each. You might also check with some of the people who sell bare wire and connectors to see if they'd custom make them for you.

You don't even need that. Digikey part number A26534-40-ND are 80position breakaway headers (looks like the connectors on motherboards that IDE drives plug into. You just pull the pins out of the plastic block with a pair of plyers and plug them into the servo connectors and then use a piece of electrical tape to keep them from coming apart if pulled. That part number will give you enough pins to make 26 3pin male to male connectors and it's only 2.48. That's www.digikey.com in case you didn't know. No soldering no fuss no mess.

BillS,
I found a need for a long male-male connector to connect the power supply to (2) Matchboxes, one in each wing for flaps of a big project.
JR supplies a short one with each unit.
