I have a Flightpower 6s-5000mah lipo and it has a pin from my balance board stuck in the balance plug. Is there any way to remove it or should I see if I could send it off for repair? The lipo only has about 10 cycles on it and I'd really like to use it. Any help is appreciated.

Mine fall down, went BOOM!!

You can take the wire out from the balance plug by lifting on the little tab holding the wire in. Use a X-Acto point blade lifting the tab slightly and pull the wire and it's crimp out. Be careful not to pull the plastic tab out to much as it will break. Not too hard, you can do it.

Make sure when you put the crimp and wire back into the balance plug, it goes in the right way . Correctly done it will not pull back out once it is all the way into the plug. If it does flip it around and when put back in then gently pull back on the wire to make sure it does not slip out.

Not sure of your plug, but it could be that the crimp is the style that you push the crimp tab in with a X-Acto blade and pull out.

pin

When I tried to pull it out I kind of skinned the wire. I tried pulling with the tab up and pushed in.

You need to put some heat shrink around that wire once out.

Here is a pretty good video for help

Thank you for the video. My lipo is a 6s Flightpower and I think the easiest thing to do is find a dead 6s lipo and cut the connector off of it and solder it to mine. That pin just wont come out.
