Uh oh, wire going to the battery is exposed


Hello,

I have an EP 200 and the red wire going from the ESC to the battery connector brushed against the main gear and it rubbed through the plastic and now I can see a little bit of the raw wire. I think the exposed wire is causing some interference with the gyro. The wire is not about to snap or anything. Can I just wrap some duct tape around the "wound" to prevent further damage and to eliminate the interference?

brushed motors are crap.
yeah put some tape on it but i dont think it has any thing to do with interference check the wire hasnt pulled near the esc that could cause it but just the isulation rubbed off wont cause it im sure

The correct position of the shaft is as far up as possible right? So that the piece at the bottom of the shaft (near the motor) is pushed all the way up.

also i read this post is it the same bird? i found that mechanical problem is the main cause ov interference

I use superglue as a bandaid for the exposed wire.

mmmm i use insulation tape but now you got you got me thinkin it can be hard sometime to get tape round the wire if its close to some other body part or in a loom maybe a finger ov silicon bathroom grade (the more it smells like a pig the better the grade)it is very flexable but dont go mad this stuff is very dence weight is not good
