Default twin motor throttle linkage, single vs dual servo?

Ok folks, this may have been addressed earlier but we all know how the search engine here is. Working on a PI fountain 53" and running 2 single inline 26cc motors. Here's the question, any preferences on running dual servo's(1) for each carb or a single servo with linkage? Only running a 3ch basic TX so mixing isn't going to happen. Any thoughts or pics would be greatly appreciated.

It's easier to set them up with a single servo. Run the linkage to some steel rod using 3 plane steerable wheel arms then run linkage to the carbs from there. That makes them sync better than using 2 servos.

One servo is all you need but two servo is not a bad way especially if you wire and program them in the computer radio with one on channel 2 (master)and one on channel 3 (slave) this gives you individual trims for both engines.

One is a better way. IMO.

Thanks for the replies. Since the TX going to be used is not programmable will probably go the single servo route.
