Default Expensive extentions and leads!

Hi guys,
So what do you do??
Do you buy those expensive extentions, those "Y" harnesses, or do you build them for 1/6th the cost????
I bought an extention ("Y") today for $13.
I had to have it...(LHS) I usually make my own.. What do you do? Do you have a source for the wire and connections?
Almost every plane has one.

I buy all mine. All JR. However there are several places to purchase lower cost extensions. Several on the net. Bob

I'm looking for 4 and 6 pin connectors and bulk servo wiring, etc. for sailplane wing wiring. Appreciate any leads (no pun intended).
Thanks, Jack

Default extensions and wiring

Guys, check out my web site. www.rcaccessory.com

I carry all 22 gauge heavy duty wiring in all sizes and in bulk for Futaba & JR. Airtronics can be ordered. I personally have been using this same stuff for 8 years and no issues at all, very high quality. All are 100% new and individually wrapped. The prices are very good and the shipping is not high either.

Thanks!

I used to make all my own with Dean's connectors when I used all ACE recievers, now I have everything converted to JR and just like Mode1, I buy them. Mostly from FMA. When I have to place a connection out in the middle of a wing I usually cut the connector off of the servo and silver solder the extension on it and shrink sleeve the three splices, that way nothing can come unplugged.

I've built my own many times, but I've also bought from Evans above and he sells the Cermark extentions at prices I can't hardly make them for. And they are NICE extensions.
