Default ganging servo's

I would like to know the best way to gang 2 servo's for elevator in 1/3 scale bip. some say just hoke them up on center with ball link. another one said get a match box. I seen a synchronizer that might wotk. I will be using a Futaba 10c and also have a new 14sg that I could use also. any help would be appreciated. thanks for your time

If it was me...I'll be using that 14SG, go to the function menu and assign both servos to channels 1and 2 or 5 and 6 to the elevator servos.
I also have a Extra 260 with 2 elevator servos using the default channels 2 and 7 I think and it works just fine.

Most high end radios have a balance or servo matching feature just for this. I don't know the new Futaba programming by heart but I'd be shocked if the 14 didn't have that feature already incorporated.

That said, a matchbox is made for that but really I doubt you'd need to buy one with that radio.

or you can use a JR matchbox or Futaba msa 10, they are used to match two or more servos together. What ever you do Good luck and have a good time.
