Today I managed to put together a servo eliminator following the instructions in post #7 & #8 from this post: HOW TO: DIY EXUP Motor Eliminator

Here are a few photos. I didn't have 1.5KΩ resistors so I put two 600-ish Ω resistors in series for a total of 1.2KΩ and they seem to work just fine. I chopped the connectors off the obviously dead servo motor and wired them into the PCB. This is a form of 'veroboard' where rows of 5 holes are connected together. It takes a little thought but proves solid results.

For 'packaging' I used a technique that I've been taught for waterproofing connectors. Using initially self-amalgamating tape - stretched and applied. This tape sticks to itself and then provides a sticky base for the electrical tape top-layer - also stretched as applied. A cable tie around the cables before starting, which is itself then wrapped, helps with the waterproofing.

Tested in the garage it seems to work fine - good excuse to check it out on the roads tomorrow with a 'test ride' ;).

Regards, Mark.
