Wiring Kit - For all 2 wing servo DLG planes. Provides parts to shorten and connect all four servo leads, and make a fixed-location autoconnector between wing and fuselage. Fixed location not required.
- Lightweight, multi-stranded wire.
- All pins and housings needed to wire a flaperon glider.
- Inexpensive and effective crimper available here if you do not have one.
- Includes a straight wing to fuse connector pair (4 pin straight), and a low profile 2x2 pin array connector pair.
- Optional 72MHz version of the kit provides parts for wiring to a wing-based antenna.
- Soldering and crimping required.
Notes: This wiring kit is very specific to the DLG application. It is lightweight, provides the cleanest harnesses and connections, and makes later servicing easier.
Not many of the standard wiring extensions, connector parts, and length of servo leads are ready for a DLG installation. The typical RC wiring parts are too heavy, connectors too large and/or inappropriate for the application, and the servo leads out of the box are too long.
Wing servo wiring should never be run into the wing without a disconnect at the servo bay. Once or twice in the life of the glider, most servos will need some sort of servicing or replacement. Even with the best servos this can happen, and not providing an easy disconnect for servicing means digging back into the wing to fix issues.
An auto-connector at the wing to fuselage interface simply means that by mounting the wing, the proper power and signal connections are completed to the wing servos. To make this possible, after completing the connector wiring, the fuse-side and wing-side connectors are fixed in place with epoxy putty or thickened epoxy. This kit includes connector parts small enough to be permanently mounted in the fuselage and wing. Though these connectors can be left loose, in most installations a permanent placement is better. Online instructions in the assembly guides explain methods for setting these parts in perfect alignment.
You'll be doing some crimping, some soldering, and some insulating, at exactly the wire lead lengths appropriate for your specific glider. Use this wiring kit to install your DLG's power and control in the best possible configuration.
