    "Y" harness or two leads

    If I wanted to use two steering servos would I use a "Y" harness for the two servos or put each lead into a separate port on the receiver.

    Please note: I'm using the stock Tx & Rx.

    Thanks to anyone/everyone.

    So, if I was to use a separate channel in the Rx how to I get the radio (stock) to recognize it?

    the 1/16 platform has 2 slots for the servo.... it has 2 inputs for channel 1, the steering channel

    you dont need a y harness

    2 slots for channel 1??? Wow. I didn't look at the receiver that close. I just thought it was basic 6 channel Rx. I'll have look a little more closely next time.
    COOL!

    I think I'll do it then, cause I have some FPV gear on my car now and the weight is a little more which means more strain on the servo.

    You could also replace your stock servo with a stronger metal geared one. Getting two servos to work together without fighting each other can be a pain.
    Nobody is born with experience

    I thought of that, but I thought trying to waterproof a servo would have been more of a pain. I really don't know though.
