The video is for a RC Car, but can be as well used for a RC Sailboat
Here’s how to shorten your servo leads in a neat fashion. Sometimes they’re just a little too long for your application so you want to shorten them up a little bit so they’re not hanging all over the place.
First thing you want to do is cut a small section of any fitting off or or other plastic tube, so you can use it to wrap around your wire. You only need to cut about 2 sections of the plastic tube; each about 1/8” wide. Then, you slide your section of fuel tubing over a pair of needle-nose pliers. Take your servo wire and fold it to shorten it’s length. Now use the pair of needle-nose pliers to stretch the fuel fitting over your wire.
And that’s it. Nice and neat and ready to go in your RC Sailboat.
