Can you show a complete set up please for
a single channel, say for throttle control

servo , battery , controller unit
 at the handle end , battery? controller

Is it viable to use only one insulated line and one standard line?

Is there a link to your web site please ?

Thank you

Vincent

Check your Email.  I sent you a copy of the Single Channel U/Tronics Instruction sheet.  Hope that answers your questions. 

The use of one insulated and one uninsulated line would work, but I would worry about the different air drag because of the different outside diameters.

I recall a post here from someone who had just that problem -- one thin line and one thick line, and an elevator that responded in a consistent (and unfortunate!) manner to changes in line tension.

The problem with electric is that once you get the smoke generator and sound system installed, the plane is too heavy.

DO NOT USE ONE INSULATED LINE - unless perhaps you are coating your own lines with polyurethane. Even in that case I would coat both.  See post

http://stunthanger.com/smf/index.php?topic=18806.0

I lost my Eindecker due to one insulated line.  When I slowed down and line tension got low the drag on the insulated up line drove the Eindecker up and over the top - BIG SPLAT!
