I don't want to go back to reversing a servo and getting rid of the harness; then the thro will be off. Or is there something I'm doing wrong?
Is there a way I can hook up two servoes in my receiver to operate the elevators without the reversing 'Y' harness'
My system is HITEC ECLIPSE 7

Hey Dodge, I have read the replys on this post and all are good ones. JUst a thought I have, could your geometry be different from one set to the other. Meaning that if your center point is at 90 degrees to the control rod on one side and the other is not 90 degrees, this will cause a difference in travel between the two. I would check this before you do anything else as changing the geometry is pretty straight forward.

Check your manual. Not familiar with the Hitec series but check to see if there's a split elevator option if it's a computerized radio.

You may be able to use two standard servoes (matching performance and positioning) with a normal Y harnes, but need to mount the servo horns the other way around, relative to each other (one pointing up, and the otehr pointing . )

Trick is to have the travel match at the servo arm. The pushrod will move in the same direction the same amount.

Will look a bit odd if someone compares the actual setup, but should work.
