Wings can be a pain installing when you have lots of servos to connect.  Besides having a rats nest of wires stuffed into the fuse, it’s important to be sure you have the connections correct.  Adding to the pain is finding out after you installed the wing you missed plugging in a servo.

The Ashlok connector solves this problem by combining all those servo connections into a single connection.  Ashlok has connectors for up to four servos.  If your wing has more than four servos, you group them using a “Y” harness.

I found a couple of sources for these connectors.  Thunderbolt R/C in Canada has the best information about the connectors and a source in the U.S. is Shulman Aviation.
