Which Tx model?
Contact LHS or your local distributor direct, replacements for both individual cell connectors or the old removable
packs are available most areas.
Fastest and probably easiest, is to replace the connectors with a short heavy duty extension lead.
Cut and solder the female socket in place of the Tx pads and the male plug onto the battery pack.
Any other form of repair to old pads is doomed to unexpected failure.

If this is the result of having some NiCad batteries rupture or leak, it is probably what is know as "black wire Disease". If so, where the wire itself has turned a blue/black or black color and become very brittle, it is an irreversable condition. The only solution is complete removal and replacement with new wire. if you go to www.hangtimes.com/redsbatteryclinic.html you will find a pretty good write up on "black wire disease".
