Default Turnigy SSV5 Analog Servo Travel Stretcher (180 Degree)

I was shopping for cables at Hobbyking (as my local r/c shop bit the dust,) when I found this device for $2.91.

"The SSV5 analog servo travel stretcher is small and lightweight, it is the ideal solution to increase the travel of your servo to almost 180 degrees."

Sounded promising - but the reviews weren't too positive. So I got one along with various cables and rcvrs.

Here's my test results, using my existing r/c gear in EBT #12's tender plus a new analog servo. You can see the movement is 90 degrees (LH tx stick.)




Here's the results with the servo extender in the cable. Not much difference - I reckon about 30 degrees more movement.



Pretty much in line with the reviews. Shame really - it would have been useful.

(Next test - wifi rcvr. stay tuned. . .)
