If I'm not mistaken the battery can be plugged into any of the channels. The power comes out, it can go in.

I have not utilized all eight ports on the supreme but have on the five channel 555 which works the same way: The fifth servo is 'y' corded with the battery into the #5 port. It will work fine and like Lynx said it makes no difference all ports use the same power buss, the battery can 'pal' with any of the servos/ports.

John

Forgot to mention you may want to use the heavy gauge 'Y' rather than the light one.

Thanks Guys! I'm going to try out my new 9C utilizing the 8th channel to do away w/ a reverser on dual elevator servos. Since I can plug the battery into any port I wont use a "Y"

Thanks Again,
Steve
