Anyone ever used Dryfluid extreme in an ec5 etc. I did a bench test and the diff is night and day. Enough hold but easy to take apart. I'm wondering if it will have any effect on the efficiency of the current flow.

Dryfluid extreme
never heard of it until I read your post,

but I will tell you how to get more efficiency and more power to your Rotor Head,, I have tested it and it's very simple, buy higher quality/higher Tolerance Bearings for your main shaft and all other shafts that utilizes gears on them, plus your heli will even feel smother on the sticks, going to higher Tolerance Bearings on your main shaft alone will be noticeable

It's a lubricant. Coats stuff with a thin film. The information says nothing about its ability to conduct electricity.

You may be unwittingly screwing up your electrical connections by coating the conductors with something that may not be electrically conductive.

It's just the test I've done. I've emailed the mnfr to ask the same. I've read some guys use vasiline as well. I've used ec5 plugs for years and am just tired of bashing my hands in the winter taking them apart.

Honestly .... I never had problem pulling apart any connectors.
- Deans
- XT90
- EC5

You can use the dry lube on the connector housing, but make sure it doesn't get on your fingers or it might get slippery.

If anything, you can use ELECTRIC DIE GREASE. Will allow conductivity and makes things slippery. Again, don't get it on your hands or connector fall in the dirt/grass .. will attract debris.

Just keep a set of bent nose snap ring pliers handy. (ones that pull a ring outward not inward)

Just drop the tips of the pliers into the slot of the ec5 and squeeze. Easily separates tight EC5 connectors and you don't need to worry about contaminants in your connectors. I only use them on new connectors that are extra tight and haven't worn in yet.

Contact Renu and lube
I use this on new connectors to make it easier to connect and to clean old ones. It drys well and doesn't leave the connector oily. Made for electronics
Bit pricey but the can will last a lifetime of EC5s. One application lasts me all year.

I bought mine local but you can see the product.
