Default unfortunate jumper disconnect.

Anyone with JR Ds285's servos no that the elevator servo's lead is to short, and need to use a extension to get it to the Rx. Well I thought I was safe with my connection. I zip tied the lead to the ESC where the splice was, but I'm pretty sure the servo lead came loose in a loop while inverted, you can all guess the rest.... I found this out when all my servo gears are stripped and when removing the elevator servo the lead came right out of the extension connector. My question is what do others use to make sure this splice dosent come loose from vibaration. Thanks for your help..

I just cut the connectors off and soldered the extension wires to my DS285 wires.

Thanks, thats what I ended up doing. A good solder joint is probably the safest bet. But boy those are some small wires to deal with.
