    Best way for 14 channels

    Hi Robert
    Would appreciate advice before I purchase. I have a scale float plane project requiring 14 channels. Using Futaba 12Z with 6014 receiver,giving 12 usable channels.
    Plane has 2 servos each for Ailerons, Flaps and Elevator.
    As far as I can see I could:
    1. Use Power Expander EQ10 and using servo matching for above dual servos would give me 13 channels plus 1 direct into receiver. Would require Ignition cut off switch Total cost 309.90
    2. Use Power Expander Competition 12 Plus and would require 2X Equalizer 11, with 2 channels direct into receiver. Ignition included. Total cost 274.90.

    Other than cost would there be any other differences I need to consider, assuming above is correct and they will both achieve what I require.
    I am leaning towards the EQ10 as would eliminate the extra clutter of Equalizer 11's

    Thanks

    RE: Best way for 14 channels

    Hi Craig,
    You cannot run any servos directly off the receiver. There are ways to grab the signal from the receiver and power the servo from the system. I can help you with that. Other than that either system would work but the Eq10 is a bit cleaner.
