Watched Jeff Fasbinder's vid and it looked pretty simple. Align support sent me a replacement updated tail case made from stronger resin, decided to replace it and hopefully save the tail motor from being pulled apart.

The process was simple just like the video showed except the pins don't push through the connector, at least I couldn't do it. I tried all three, one at a time. They all broke. Here is what I did to fix it.

I ended up making a new connector out of a left over connector from a Spektrum telemetry Y connector.

Its almost impossible to take that connector apart. I know in the video they did that. But i'm suspecting some connectors where solder together with the pins in them. Making them almost imposable to take apart. BTW How did you get a new version of the tail housing?
