Default Multiple servo control question help please.

I am trying to set up 4 servo's to one channel. I have no choice but to do this. Is there a device out there that will take a signal and distribute it to multiple servos all dong the same thing? I am not sure how many servos could be stacked on a y harness. I would think only two.

Thanks in advance

Hi somajr,

Yes there are various devices out there that allow you to run multiple servos/batteries and set up their throws so they are identical. I use a "Smart Fly" from Precision Airobatics, JR make a "Matchbox" and there are many others. Like most things in this hobby your choice will be determined by budget, current and future applications.

With multiple high drain servos I would strongly suggest two large capacity battery packs and hevy duty switch/es.

Cheers,

Colin
