can the wires from the servos to the receiver be made longer
« on: August 26, 2018, 10:25:30 AM »

hi, I am trying to build a submarine. and the problem I have is that there is not enough space for the servos and the receiver in the same space. so my question is can I make the wires between the servos and receiver longer. if so would it better to use thicker wire between the two or are there ready made extension cables available in the UK. thanks, michael

I bought one from my local model shop and it cost 99p? I recall it was very cheap.
