5 posts in this topic

I am going to start a list here for tips on fixing things.

Broken balance plug on lipo-        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KMbz77mwIIw Try to use this method. I also put a dab of solder on it to help hold it. Here is where I bought them at banggood here

Broken arm- When replacing with carbon fiber you need the red cloth washers between, put nail polish on them before sliding the arm in between to hold them in the right place so they line up with the holes.

I have another good one I lost my foam pads off the bottom so I cut up an old thong (flip flops in other countries) and hot glued it on.

The XT60 plugs that are on the Eachine's from Banggood seem to be a little loose, which can cause issues like low voltage/drop outs of vtx among other things. I recommend you replace the XT60 with some purchased elsewhere, although a quick fix that helped is to use a small item, such as a pop rivet to spread the pins in the plug slightly to give a better connection.
