Default Servo Extensions

Has anyone bought from this outfit, servowires.com ?
Were you satisfied?
Looks like good products, decent prices and free shipping.
Thanks.

You know the old say "if its to good to be true, it probably isn't". I'm not sure if thats the case with this website. I checked the terms and conditions and it all looks fine. The free shipping is kinda wierd though.

I have never boughten anything from there, but make sure you get a wire with the proper connectors for the radio your using. (Jr, futaba, ect)

If you buy a roll of servo wire from a place like Hobby People, a bit of heat shrink tube from any hardware store you can lengthen your wires in about five minutes to any length you require. Nothing to come loose or corrode. Soldering is very easy to do and learn. Much better then extensions.

Gray is correct just remember to stagger you solder splices...less chance of a short.....
If you ever get to Perry Ga in March ther is a huge "swap meet" alot of new stuff as well.....I picked up servo extensions for a buck a piece...as long as 3 ft....

Got the extensions yesterday. They look good. 20 ga. Twisted wire, real heavy duty. Great price and FREE SHIPPING. They were sent the same day I called. I will be buying from here again. So if you are not into soldering your own extensions, I suggest you give these a try.

I only mention soldering for those of us that are lazyasses and don't want to be pulling them to clean them up. I have used them often years ago and never had one pull loose but I have seen a lot of good giant scale planes go down from corroded terminals, even the gold plated extensions. That's the only reason I went to soldering, I really hate having to pull long leads and clean them, I really am a lazyass. Truth, no kidding!!

I'm with you GB, I hate having extentions (the plugs really) in places I can see or get at them.
