Hootowl, is that 4.95 for a single one? Seems a tad pricey. I bought the SlimLine ones, which weren't cheap either, but at least they come 6 to a pack.

That's for a package of 10

A little goop put on with a toothpick and they stay put until you pull on them. I don't like using anything that can't seperate in a crash.

I like them because they are simple and don't add a lot of bulk. They also allow quick disconnect and reconnect.

I never used the rubberized tire CA until I built my Tiger. Now that I have some experience with it, I've found many uses for it such as putting small dos of it on the tail rotor standoffs so that they don't move around, gluing in the servo mounts and gluing the leads together. I just put a small amount on the male side and seat it in the female side and presto change-o no more loose extensions.

I don't think that's a good idea. What if I want to remove a failed servo or wire to replace?

Or change a gyro on it?

Batteries don't last forever, eventually they'll need to be changed out, this will leave it stuck together for good and require cutting and splicing in new leads.
