  • Servo direction reversel

    I have just finished adding steering to my.nose gear retract. Naturally the servo for the nose retract runs in the opposite direction that I need. I'M familiar with removing wires from connectors, so can I simply switch a couple of the wires? If so which one(s) ?

    I tried this recently (nose gear was turning in the opposite direction of the rudder) and although the logic seems straight forward, I burned out the servo in the process...

      Sorry to read that tc I found out it was a no go and after going thru servos on hand found one reversed and used that so no magic smoke..

        What did you do? It would have been simple to just buy a 5 buck servo reverser or a reversed servo. The other option would have been to use a RX with an extra channel you could plug the steering servo into and then mix that port with rudder.
