Those Pesky Micro Losi \ Walkera Battery Connectors part deux

I figure I'd go into more detail on getting those Micro Losi \ Walkera battery connectors to work better as many still have problems with them.

The first thing to address is the pin angles on charger\RX connector. Typically the pins are pointing the wrong way as pictured below. The pins are pointing downwards which will make it hard to insert the connectors as well as cause bad electrical contact if they're that way on your charger:



You want to get a small flat head screwdriver and slightly pry them upwards. You'll notice the connectors will go in easier and make better contact. The first time you insert the battery, it may go in rough, but the the angle of the pins will self-adjust and subsequent insertions will go much more smoothly:



We've been offering a service on our Lipos to remove the little nubs on the batteries in order to make it easier to take the connectors apart. You can see the nub in the picture below:



Instead of modifying each battery, a much better solution is to remove the locking tabs on the the RX connector using a pair of nail clippers:



Tabs removed vs stock. This picture also shows the pins tweaked vs stock:



So there you have it. Happy quading!!
