Any of the Futaba sbus servos that have "SVI" at the end of the designation have removable leads with the little white plug. Futaba has those leads available in multiple lengths. I think the lengths are 100,150,200,300,400 mm
I'm using them in my synergy 516.

Thanks for that. I didn't know Futaba was making servos with detachable leads. I guess need to look around more.

I did a search on Tower for "Futaba + SVI" and found the below. I'll be looking to see if the idea grows to other offerings.

Cheers,

Bill

Quote; "Electric helicopters can’t be compared to glow or gasser helicopters. The vibration is different in frequency and particularly magnitude"

Just my "old school" opinion but this statement is correct. I would use grommets/eyelets for glow/gasser and I suppose you could eliminate them for electric heli's however it would wise to isolate vibrations (especially high frequency) from any/all electronic components.

Just my 2 cents for what it's worth.

Cheers,

you can use them right out of the box like any servo when plugged into "normal" reciever slot. However, there are numerous characteristics that are tunable/programmable if you so desire, plus they have what is essentially a decoder, so you can tell them what pulse (channel) to obey, and send a serial stream of all channels (sbus input) and they'll work also. With sbus, instead of the reciever "breaking out" the various channels and sending one to each plug, all are sent over the one wire and the endpoint device (servo in this case) is programmed to select only one of the channels to comply with.
