Question Ailerons

Now this is going to be a really stupid question, I can feel it in my bones. I have a Minimag which I am in the process of building. I intend to utilise the aileron facility. I have a four channel radio (Futaba 4EX). Now, to use the ailerons do I have to use a 'Y' cable to connect the receiver to the servos? Sorry for appearing to be so stupid as I suspect that the answer is blindingly obvious.

Thanks

In a word... 'Yes'.

The manual also suggests the angle that you should fit the servo arms to give some differential to the ailerons. (When using a Y-cable).

If you don't have the build manual, let me know and I'll look up the specs for you.

Thanks M.T., if I had bothered to read the manual properly (something I am always telling my wife to do) I wouldn't have had to post the message. Anyway, thanks again.

Cheers

Brian
