XT60 toothpick hack
#16
My problem with XT60s is that they are always too tight! I really have to apply a lot of force to separate them. :/

A little lanolin spray works wonders on the plastic. and you can close the pins a little as well..not too much.

Thanks! I googled around and it's quite a versatile stuff: 100yr old mothers in law use it. It's used for baby butts and mothers nipples. It's also used in the automotive and marine industry. Will try to get some from the last two categories. Wink

This has actually been a pondering point for me in my reseach.
Is there a specific reason for using the xt-60 connectors?
I started using deans style connectors many years ago in all of my RC buggies and trucks because of the minimal resistance and the tight fit of the plug itself.
70mph somersaults over n over and have NEVER had one unplug, provided batterys stayed strapped in. I have had inertia unplug one when the battery was flinging around lol. And thats using 2 batts in series with a Y connection, so 3 connections in total. Thats been my experience, be it mostly ground oriented.

So maybe someone can offer some insight as to why the drone hobby steers in the direction of the xt-60 vs Deans style.

Should I maybe start a discussion thread on this subject?
