Picture of DIY Servo Splitter for RC Planes in 10 minutes!
Hey I recently got into RC electronics so I'm starting to put out some i'bles on the subject! Well while I was building my RC plane I came across a little dilemma- I didn't have a servo splitter. I was thinking I'd have to wait another week to get to the hobby shop and buy one and that would cost me money and time. Then I had a bright idea, why buy one when I could make one!?? What I'm trying to replicate is http://www.pololu.com/catalog/product/788

Please give this a vote for the "I Could Make That" contest!

Cut your servo wire to desired length and strip both ends of the wire. Separate each wire apart for about 1 1/2 inches.
After splitting the wires add some solder to the wires. This will help with the soldering process later on.

Step 3:
