  • Thanks Aros!

    Here I come with more Hornet to share! :D

    That's the one I was talking about. I think it should work but have not tested it yet!

      That's the same wing connection board that it comes with stock. The photo in the description shows the pins that the aileron/flap servo connections plug into and the other side, not shown, is the connector for the ribbon cable. That's the board I removed so I could just plug the extensions coming from the RX directly into the wing servos. If I wasn't so lazy, I'd leave the wing as is with the ribbon connector, but cut the wires coming off and solder them directly to the extensions going to the RX. I was hoping to find a board that had the same pins on both sides.

      • Well, my point is, if you keep the wing-mounted one and the ribbon cable, adding another one of these on the opposite end of the ribbon should give you individual access to each servo.
        Again, I have not thoroughly examined the connections, need to do that yet, but should be plug and play!

          Oh, now I see what you mean, yes that would do the trick. I'm not that creative so you have to assume you're speaking with a 2 year old.

          • I didn't think of that myself, tbh.
            Topdogzrc gave me the idea.
            My original plan was to turn the ribbon into a multi-output wire-thing manually.

            But I'm lazy and his approach seemed to be more straightforward!
