I didn't even bother keying the solid boom, just used a little liquid tape at the junctions. Wanted to get a small 2 pin Dean's connector to place back by the tail motor so I could leave wire taped to boom if I had to take it apart, but just soldered it (hobby shop didn't have those connectors). Again used liquid tape for covering solder junctions.

With all the talk of burnt up boards I did decide to use some regular insulated wire from V911 tail motor along the exposed areas rather than the enamel coated wire. I didn't have trouble with enamel coated wire but wanted to remove some risk.

The stock boom is just not usable. The last one I got (cause I needed the motor), had just a very minor crash not even direct hit to boom and it was cracked.
