I have adopted a recommendation on this thread, I think by Bill Glover, to replace all of the connectors with Protek bullets available from A Main Hobbies. These do not have the swivel cage, and but rather have a solid split male plug. They are also easier to solder because there is a little cut out in the side of the cup so you solder the wire onto the side of the cup rather than trying to "dip" it into a pool of solder. After several problems with connectors, some of which did not happen right away, I replaced all the connectors on my quad and my hex.

Read this and you will probably want to have a tube of OX-Gard on hand. It also explains why not to use dielectric grease.
