All you need is servo extensions correct? there are tons of ads on ebay for servo extensions. I got 20 for $6!


I never buy from ebay as every time I tried to I got ripped off big time I never got what I paid for


@Wolfie ..I suggest going to a thrift store and checking out their electronics section. Often there will be tons of various gauge wires and other cool stuff to raid!


@Wolfie email me your mailing address. I think I have some servo extension wires I can send you. If I don't have any, I am going to the hobby shop Tuesday after work and will pick some up. No charge to you, just one maker to another.


Thank you thetechguru will send now:):):)

@irobot58 I go to the thrift store every day its open but I live in a really small town and there is never much there at all other than clothing and that's vary limated to

im hoping to be moving back to the last town I was in there the thrift stores are good and a new hobby shop opened there .... wish it would not cost 250 for a day trip there lol


A good source of wires are in telephone cables. You can ask your local telephone repair man if he has a short length of spare wire. Mine had no problem giving me 4 feet. It will have many connections inside of it, maybe 25-30 copper wires. You can hook each of those wires and the servo wires to a terminal strip.


@Moviemaker, Good suggestion. I have a 25 foot coil of 25 pair telephone wire (and a few smaller cables as well). You do need to be careful to use them in areas that don't get a lot of movement. It is fairly stiff solid wire and will fail due to metal fatigue if bent back and forth a lot.
