    Hi all

    Just bought an OLD Robbe Multiprop decoder to go with a F14 transmitter.

    The seven + power sockets take the old type connectors.

    Does anyone know of a supplier of these leads?

    Hopefully

    Hi John,
                 These are available from the USA- go to Radical RC-where I think they are listed under wires, anyway in the site  search for Futaba G servo leads, I recently bought 20 of them at US $32  . My advice is to either buy loads or keep the value under £15  because over that figure the package ( including any insurance!!) is liable for VAT, an extra 20% is bad enough , but worse for a low value package is the Royal Mail's flat rate charge of £8 for collecting the tax , they call it International Handling Fee, strikes me it is a lot of money for passing the buyer a demand for in my case a £4.20 tax bill. So an extra £12.20 on an item costing £21.11.

                      Trevor.

    Hi Trevor.

    Thanks for the info and the phone call. I checked out that site and the leads are currently $3.00 each and the address rang a bell, my brother in law lives about 50 miles from them - hows that for a small world concept. Spoke to him last night and he said he'll send some over this weekend.

    Component shop cannot source the G type plugs so were unable to help.

    Cheers

    John
