Afternoon all.

I want to have a single connector to join the servos and retracts in the wing to the fuselage rather then having individual connectors.

I have a spare balance lead connector for a 8cell battery (9pins), would this be suitable for the currents etc that are invovled with servos?

Dave, For what it is worth I used Multiplex multipin connectors for my DB Cherokee (2 servos each wing).

Worked very well. (Batteries are for the lighting unit befire I get accused of running the Rx on dry cells!)

I have used the Multiplex connectors on several models and they have been very good for me.

Where I have two wing halves either side of a fuselage I wire it up so the two connectors are opposite, i.e. plug on one wing half and socket on the other wing half. That way I cannot plug it together incorrectly.

Yes I know we should carefully test the setup before flying but this is just one thing that is impossible to get wrong during the setup at the field.
