Sorry to hear about the crash, rabshell. I try to add a drop of silicone to any connectors, including servos that don't get unplugged, that don't lock. I forgot to do that on the battery connector in my transmitter and it lost power completely while I was showing it to a friend. The barest touch returned power but it darn well would have caused a crash had it happened in flight. You can bet that connector won't come loose without a X-acto knife!

BTW. My friend did similar damage when he knocked his nose off. We cleaned the wounds with rubbing alcohol, gobbed it up with 15 minute epoxy, and taped it straight for a few hours. It hasn't flown a whole lot since but it's taken some hard pullouts without giving way!
