If you put some Goop on them they will always be plugged in!

Good save. Sometimes it doesn't go the way it did.

I know what you guys are saying but just posted this as a reminder to make sure people go over everything twice during new builds,rebuilds ect... .I don't use hot glue on mine because the plug fits so tight in the slot that it feels like i'll pull the wires right out,I really need to pull on it to unplug them.They fit so tight that if I don't hold the Vbar control box,i'll pull it off the radio tray lol..
The problem was I didn't push it all the way in when I put everything back together,got side tracked..

I have a hot glue gun and always used it but the plugs fit in the Vbar super tight...

Thanks Ken,
As soon as it happend I moved the stick to correct it..Been doing alot of piro stuff so im pretty sure that played a big roll in saving it..

That was a nice save. I check my connections every time I put my battery in, so basically the connections get checked every 4-5 flights. Nothing has been loose yet, they are pretty darn tight.

Is Goop the best product for keeping the wires in?

do you nirto guys use the goop because of the excessive residue? I dont own a nitro , but I dont see the need for any hot glue on my servo wires and or plug ends, evrything is tight as is.

I started using goop because the last time I had Vbars the servo leads were very, very loose. Just common practice for me now.

Nice save! we can never check and double check enough.

Good save, something else people can use is that clear servo tape across all the top of the plugs into the module etc, also of course your sensor wire for your fbl sensor as well 100% make secure. That was some great luck indeed Lon, could have ended up much worse, so count that one out as a great day!

...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

I use doble sided tape across all connectors. Either they ALL come out or NONE.

Good save and thanks for sharing.
