Servo Y cords
« on: January 16, 2014, 05:23:01 PM »

I need to run four servos simultaneously, preferably off one receiver channel. Will a cascading pair of Y cords, splitting one channel's output to four servos, work?

I've heard that 2.4 gHz radios also have weaker (lower voltage) servo signals? Am I going to have a voltage drop problem to the point the servos won't respond to commands? Total receiver to servo distance will be about 24 inches.

Many Thanks for any assistance.
