    Aye, just one of those things. Short of a miracle happening, I am not expecting to run an event now until next year. By then... BotFest might have a completely new arena. ;)

    I thought you meant on the receiver? The RC bits I have already have a JST-SH plug on them normally, it'd just push on and then some electrical tape over the wire, plug and RX to hold it in place.

    I use the pins that come on the receiver and put electrical tape around that and the board to keep it in. Have come a cropper with RC wires coming out before.
