Custom Pigtail Vinyl InsulationWe can hand make pigtails to almost any specification. A "pigtail" is a wire with only one connector. Use to repair servos, switch harnesses or perhaps add to existing servos for that "Extension Free" custom installation. Choose from drop down menus your preferences. Generally we size these by measuring from the back of each connector. So the overall length will be greater by connector shell length. Twisted wire can be adjusted slightly in length by changing the number of twists. We try to get within about 1/2" of your spec. Please order long enough to compensate for minor variance.
Note: 2 wire battery pigtails in 6", 3 wire pigtails 10" and Micro Lite at 5" are available in machine made sizes and at lower cost, find them in the connector category to fit your specific brand. Check there first to see if any stock sizes will meet your needs.
Micro Lite: This type of wire is used most commonly in applications with small servos (.5 oz weight or less usually) in park flyers, foamies, sailplanes, DLG's and other models with low servo loads. You can save a bunch of weight eliminting beefy stock wiring from these smaller models.
26 Gauge Standard: This wire is what you find in most new radio sets and on most mid size to full size standard torque 4 screw mountable servos. This ribbon wire size is a good wire choice for those types of servos (and smaller) if the runs are 24" or less. Good for smaller servos in long runs such as sailplane wings and similar. For example, great for you 60" cub but use 2o gauge your outfitting a 100" Cub.
22 Gauge Heavy Duty: Use for all larger models and anyplace a high torque or digital servo might be used. Use for standard torque servos if your runs are very long (over 24")
Sometimes it's hard to tell the boys from the girls. Servo and battery ends are "MALE", RX's and Y harness recepticals are "FEMALE". When the pins are hidden, connectors are gendered by the shell. Just remember as an "assembly", a servo or battery plug fits inside an RX or Extension therefore it's male.
