Default servo reversing

How can i make my servo reverse without fliping it or switching the arm or using my transmiter?
its in a heli and i cant flip it or do anyof that stuff...
is there a way by switching the wires inside the servo or something easier???

usually no.... reversing the wires will not work as there are internal electronics that you would need to change
you will have to do one of the above...

or change the servo..

ie: Futaba goes one way, Hitec goes another, etc. etc.

Most...if not all transmitters allow for a channel reversal.... what Tx are you using????

i wouldn't trust a gws servo anywhere close to a heli!!! I bought 6 of them last year, none are around anymore this year. I would say none made it longer then 10-20 flights total!!

anyway, what heli/tx are you flying that you can't just flip a switch?

There is nice article in the Sept RC Report on reversing servos. You may want to check it out.

very easy to do if you know how to handle a soldering iron. the two outer wires of the pot need to be switched around and the same needs to be done to the pair of wires going to the motor. the surgery can be done to the circuit board or to the terminals of the pot and motor, whatever looks easiest.
