I use a small watchmakers phillips head screwdriver on mine.

I mean just stick it in and keep them there. This way the connectors will not bend back

Unfortunately I came to think about it after your crash

Word of wisdom: always keep a spare... Of everything all the time.

I had no idea that was why my XT60s were loose. Last week I had to hunt through 5 foot tall grass in a field because a flip caused the battery to unplug from gravity. I thought the plastic must have stretched or something.

If I didn't spend all my money on the first one I would have spare everything. But I did and I don't so yay for me. I did buy four extra arms so that should help the next time it breaks.

I too use biggles method, although once they're past a few + tweaks they can break, ask sigloss

Brilliant, I love these types of solutions - so brutally practical Most of my fleet now has toothpicks in their XT60 connectors - batteries connect securely and snugly now.
My humble addition - the toothpick goes a long way if you keep sharpening the ends with an x-acto knife after every cut.

Strange, I pushed a toothpick in my XT60 and I could not fit the battery plug in. Maybe Hungarian toothpicks are bigger
