I'm installing an Arizona regulator fo the first time.

I notice that gyro gain and rudder connectors... the built-in onboard connectors where you plug in the gyro wires... seema bit loose to me.

What have others been doing to keep these guys in place? I was thinking of using a tiny dab of hot glue.

Any better suggestions?

I fly them exclusively and haven't had loose connections where you mentioned. Maybe it's you end that's loose

Just installing one myself as well, and nothing seems loose here. Keep in mind that with the very low mass of the cable/connector, and lack of anything pulling on it, how tight does it really need to be?

"how tight does it really need to be?"

well, maybe I caused my own problem. I fly JR, but I use Futaba gyros. So, long ago, I replaced the connectors on the permanent wires coming out of the 601's amp with JR shaped connectors. These things fit so loosely into the Arizona that the only thing causing friction to keep them put is the contacts themselves.

I'm guessing that if I would have left the Futaba shaped connectors in place, it would make a better fit.

I went ahead and put a dab of hot glue on there. Should be easy to chip off later with a knife.

Take a piece of that 3M double side tape. Only take the red cellophane off one side. Use it to secure servo connectors
