Default best velcro or "hook & loop" to hold ESC?

I run a Mamba Max setup and the USB is on the long side of the ESC. This means that to tune it, i need to remove it each time so i can fit the USB cable into the port.

I used servo tape, as usual, but removing it proved to be scary as the stuff i use is pretty incredible, plus it's just damn wasteful and inconvenient to have to lift it every time.

I tried velcro, the yellow package stuff. the adhesive side worked great, but the damn velcro itself posed a problem. The soft side was such a high profile that when attached to the harder side, it would make the esc wobble atop a mound of velcro.

What can i use? Is there a nice low profile velcro that works for this application? I'd like the ESC to be able to be pretty secure yet removeable.

''Ultra Velcro'' It's what I use, less than 3mm
assembeled. The hook side seem's nearly smooth
and dosn't hold or plug up with fluff.
It's Black colour is nice to.

I have been using industrial strength velcro brand for several years and have never lost a ESC or RX.Just clean the surfaces you will be sticking the tape side of the velcro to with isopropyl alcohol 1st.

''builthatch'' Yes Sir that's the stuff. Found it at
a local hardware chain, Home Depot.
Was reasonable $ less than $20.00 for more than
enuff to even share some.
Seen the Ind' stuff wider, white! glue.
The clear or black glue on the Ultra stick's great.
I have @ 9 or 10 Elect' components held in micro's.
The body and ESC & Rec' in a RS4-P3.
Spectrum Rec' in EB4-S3. LST,help's hold 2nd batt 5cell
hump on frt shock tower. T-Maxx batt help again.
Anywere I put a personal transponder it only need's @ 1/4''
grip to stay!
This stuff is so cool I bet you could hold Heat Sink's on with it!
