Hi Guys,

I just got a a GY601 to replace my 401.... however, as I'm trying to install it on my Evo I don't see any way to make the servo cord reach all the way from the boom mount to the front where I'm mounting the amp.

How are people installing it on Evos ? using extension cords ? I heard they should be avoided at all costs... so I'm leary of using them.

Tried searching forever for this answer or setup pics, but can't find anywhere (very surprising) so decided to start a new post.

Any advice would be appreciated,

Ben

I had to use a servo wire extender on my heli. They are ok to use, you just want to make sure they don't come apart in flight.

I use a small Tie Wrap between the wires and around the connectors to prevent it coming apart, cheap but effective

I use a short HD (heavy duty) extension with no problems.
