This 12-inch (300-mm), twisted Y-cable can be used to split a single RC hobby servo signal into two identical outputs. It has 22-AWG wires terminated on all three ends by “JR”-style female connectors, which are compatible with 0.1" header bins and both male JR and male Futaba J connectors.

This 12" (300 mm) Y-cable has female JR connectors on all three ends, so it can be used to make connections between devices with 0.1" 3-pin male headers, such as between RC servo controllers or RC receivers and motor controllers with an RC interface. Specifically, it can be very useful in situations where you want to provide the same RC signal to two devices, such as a pair of Simple Motor Controllers working together with signal mixing enabled. The cable’s connectors are commonly found on RC servo leads and work with both male JR and male Futaba J connectors. They have gold-flashed contacts on a 0.1" spacing and are joined by 22-AWG, 60-strand wires that make this cable more flexible than standard servo cables.
The split occurs close to the single (input) end of the cable, allowing the two output ends to achieve a maximum separation of approximately 18" (450 mm).
Note: The cable’s female connectors are the same as what is found on most generic servos and fits nicely with 0.1" male headers, but is often referred to as “male” in the RC hobby industry. The picture below shows the cable connectors labelled with our gender convention.
These female-to-2x-female cables are available in two styles: flat, with wires stuck together side by side, and twisted, with wires twisted around each other to decrease electromagnetic interference (EMI). The twisted versions are especially soft and flexible.
