    Effectively, yes. A wire is attached to each end of the fuse holder and the fuse acts as a bridge.

    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.
