I know what you mean. To me "clean" means the wires aren't getting caught in the belts, dragging on the carpet, or otherwise flapping around unnecessarily. Once that's accomplished, job done, let's hit the track!

A pretty quick rebuild for me. Got it practically brand new from a buddy. Didn't feel like being OCD on this one. And don't mind the 21.5, just put it in to get the wire lengths.

Default receiver plug shortening

does anyone have a good link to a video or instructions how to remove the wires from a receiver plug (on speed control or servo) so i can shorten them? i am trying to clean up my electronics and cant seem to figure out how to do it without cutting and re-soldering the wires.

Thanks

You can cut and shorten them inside the case or just cut and put new rx ends on then. They sell kits thst have the black outer plug with the metal pins.

Can't stress enough to buy the special wire crimper. It makes all the difference in the world.

No video but I can make one if you need.


I do one of 2 things

1) shorten the wire by taking apart the servo and unsoldering the wires from the circuit board and cutting the wires to length and resolder it back to the board


Or I get new connectors with the inserts and since I do not have the crimper I just solder the wire to the very end of the crimp connector making sure to use as little solder as possible. Then with a pair of pliers fold the wings of the crimp connector over the wire at the bottom and the 2 flat pieces I fold onto them selves.

This has worked great for me as it will never come loose.

But a crimp tool takes about 1/10th the time any of my solutions take

If I could change servo wires to blue I might have but I don't like the having multiple color wires

Thanks brother

Another alternative is putting a small amount of solder on servo wires way better than crimping.
