As the photo below shows, the black wire going into the battery clip broke off yesterday. I don't know anything about wiring so I'm wondering if this is easily fixable? It broke off flush at the clip so there's no extra wire coming out of the clip to repair to the wire coming out of the esc. Thanks.

I was Spektrum when Spektrum wasn't cool

Just a light solder job. Get yourself a soldering iron and practice. Read up on soldering online.

Mine just did the SAME EXACT thing. I noticed it was cutting in and out, then pop - off it went.

Pull the heat shrink, strip a bit of wire, solder, heat shrink. Took longer to heat up the solder gun than to fix it.

Good luck

Get yourself some GOOP and put some around that wire connection for those who haven't had it break yet and for those who fixed it after it broke. The stuff is the best for just this kind of thing.

The best thing to do to prevent this is to try your best to pull on the connecter, not the wires when unplugging the battery after a flight.

Thanks for the tips. Didn't pull on the wires. It was damaged in a crash when the landing gear got pulled off hard way. The good is a great idea.
