Hi All,

I am wondering how you guys secure those wires that connect to the receiver and also secure the battery and gyro connectors to prevent them from coming appart due to vibration.

What methods are there for the sucurity of these and what do you all use.

Comments please

Thanks

Some use Dental Floss and thread it through the wires at the connector and tie it around the RX, and the connectors. On the gyro to TR servo lead, I've used shrink-wrap, which could also be used on servo extensions.

Well for me it's actually not something I worry about. The reason being is that I use JR receivers and Futaba servos. Usually when I cut the tabs off the servo/gyro leads, there is still PLENTY of friction to prevent the leads from coming out.

I used to make up carbon fibre retainers for my futaba connectos, but lately, I've taken to the simple approach of using electrical tape to hold the cables/connectors to the rx.
It makes for a challenging exercise trying to land a heli when the elevator servo becomes unplugged

I shoe goo the plugs once they're plugged into the receiver, works well and is still removable with a little work.

This hobby is like Kryptonite to chicks!
