Default Reversing "Y" Harness'?

I was thinking about getting one of these to use in a UCD3D that I am asembling and then I had a thought.

Are these nothing more than a standard "Y" harness with the polarity flipped on one of the servo leads.

It can't be that simple can it?

Of course not!
Flipping polarity of the Y-harness won't help, or it may even damage your servo. You can reverse the servo (there's plenty of info on the Net how to do this--resoldering a couple of wires inside the servo) and use a regular Y-harness.
The other advantage of a good reversed Y-harness is that it'll allow you to offset the neutral position of one of the servos, which combined with the trimming of both servos will enable you to trim the independently. (It's harder to say than to do this.)
