This is correct.

You are correct about being careful with wire size. Although I don't have any mega projects. But if you look at Dag's huge B-36. with 20+ servos in that thing running several receivers for redundancy and safety. Add in the motor wiring. He's got to have 20 lbs. of wire running through that thing. Going up a gauge of wire would be a significant weight, The ultra micro guys watch the wire weight as well.

However for the rest of us with 40 size and up sport and scale models. I don't think it's an issue.

Bruce,

Might want to look at Electrodynamics one click multi-connex. They work great and are resonable, the concurn I have with your D9 connectors is they are designed to be connected with screws and you could have issues with just plugging them in. Don't want to see all that super work get hurt by a connection.

Cherokee, Bruce said he was going to cut the plastic casings off.
That probably means the screw fasteners too.
Some guys use dental floss or small wire ties to tie the connections together.
That's probably what Bruce will do.........................

So each half of the plug will be firmly attached to the wing tip and the wing root,
and plug in automatically when you slide the wing tip on, if I read that right. Is that so?

THAT IS CORRECT
THE lights will have to be plugged in by hand there's not enough wires; and they will go through the half round hole above the 9 pin plug.

You know if you go down to an electronics shop, you can pick up these connectors up to 21pin and wire them yourself?

Bit too fine work huh? lol.
Yeah, they can be a bit of a git, the key is to fill each core with solder first, then clamp them to add the tinned wire...

Be a bit of a trip for me, too, but it would be an easy job for me.
In the early 90's I worked for a company that built hard drive motors
where I soldered tiny wires under a magnifying glass.
But at least there wasn't any sanding to do......

Hey, post the connectors and cables over with detailed instructions for pin numbers and wire colours and I'll get it back to you in the new year lol.
Other than that, just keep doing what you're doing lol.
