Excessive Servo Current Draw
Modelers who set up large aircraft with digital servos need to
use a current meter to null out excess current flow caused from
linkage misalignment, programming issues, linkage geometry
and hinging issues.
If you have to ask what do you mean by setup you can benefit
from our book Gas Engines—Giant Planes. The book describes
various systems and setups that are appropriate for giant scale
aircraft. If you want to learn about setting up a large aircraft you
should order our newly released, highly illustrated 4th edition
Gas Engines—Giant Planes by calling 800-972-6273 to place an
order. You’ll be glad you did.

Snake skin is a lightweight cable sheath that is used in gas, electric or
glow aircraft to create flexible wiring conduits, bundle multiple servo
leads into neat cables, protect fuel tubing, battery cables, power leads
and ignition sensors from chafing. It allows the modeler to organize the
planes wiring into a neat and professional installation
Snakeskins are (measured in grams)
and come in 1/8”, 1/4”, 3/8 and 1/2” diameters and lengths up to 25 feet.
Red, Orange, Yellow, Green Blue Black White and Carbon colors are available
to match your plane color scheme. Snakeskin is installed by pushing the ends
together to expand the diameter, slip the wires or tubing through and then
release the pressure to return the snakeskin to its original diameter, just like
the old Chinese finger trap.
