Default Servo Wires & Length

Guy's. I just wanted to put up some pictures of how to shorten your servo wires for a NICE clean heli look. I've done TONS AND TONS of these. So i thought i would share.

If you wish to have a pair or a few servo wires shortened or anything electronic because you don't wish to do it. PM ME I'll help ya.

When you build a R/C Car or Heli, "usually" the servo wires are way to long. In my case on the Trex 500 they were way to long, from factory they are 13". I took one out and measured for how long I needed it, then took the servo apart and shortened the wire, now its the perfect length and no access wire in the chassis, looking to get chewed up..


Side of the T500,

Bottom cover off the Mini Servo

Now it's done.

If you wish to do it your self, one AWESOME TIP, use electrical tape around the TOP part of the servo, so you don't have to rebuild the servo / take it apart OR loose any pins / gears.
