Title: Servo Ouput Shaft
Post by: BarryM on May 21, 2014, 10:47:07 pm
I have been searching for a UK source of an extension output shaft which will fit the splines of a Futaba servo.  I've located some which will fit other servo types but none for Futaba. Before I crank up the lathe, can anyone else come up with a source?

Malcolm,
Just that sort of thing but priced in and closer to home!

A bit closer, in Euros.  So well hidden in the site that you might be forgiven for thinking that they don't want to sell them.

Since responding above, I've had the chance to further research the goodies on offer on this website and found some really fascinating stuff. Thanks again Malcolm, I've found more than one solution there.  :-)) The only drawback is the high P&P from France.
