Question
tech1wi

Hello, I have a R617fs 7 ch. Futaba receiver. I need 8 channels. Is it true that I can put y- harness
in one channel, and attach servo and the battery into that channel. ??

The 617 is a 7 ch Rx. You would need at minimum the 6208.

But yes, you can Y harness the battery to any channel.

Yeah, as far as I know. But what I dont understand is why you need 8ch Rx with a 7ch Tx. Unless it is for an extra battery port.

It's better if they are on separate channels but on one can work as shown above....
