I think @Yith does this, but I have been soldering direct from component to FC, and with the new Tiny Ape (and may do on other builds), it seems it could be very useful to be able to disconnect the GPS, RX, etc from the FC. Also need to wire through tiny holes, so taking top off drone becomes a pain! Sooo… I have been googling some Male/female connectors with silicone wires, for 2, 3, 4 (maybe even 5) cables, can’t really find anything suitable
Any recommendations? Should be small, silicone wire (low AWG is fine I think for data and low current), and stay together pretty well.
Yeah I try and use silicone where ever possible. I got reels of the stuff, mainly 30 I use and it’s fine on the GPS, and RX.
@yith those links, esp the second (as want 4 pin), they’re not silicone are they? (They’d advertise that bit if was surely). Really struggle to find silicone with pre-soldered pins… Not end of the world, but as Steve said it’s better than PVC which most come with!
yeah cheers. I get the handyness. Looking at Molex Picoblades too. Will makea decision later, lol cheers mate. I solder aat around 410 degrees, so the Silicone is a lot better to tolerate. In and out in a second, can always play with em first as the cables are far too long, so can mess up the ends a bit with practise
Ordered a selection from ebay, will reduce heat a little when tinning and practise. Still if anyone ever finds 3, 4, 5 pin style mini connectors in silicone… (Without having to solder, crimp, etc) let me know
I do find UMT stock levels worse than most. Then again I use them most, HRC sometimes, and flying tech trying to use more, though their range isn’t as great.
Those are just the “plugs” (male or female) I think. I nearly ordered them yonks ago. Having both the male and female connectors soldered for wires means I can just cut to length and put in, and TBH doesn’t really matter is JST PH, XH, or Molex PicoBlade, or some other made up “standard”… As long as they the same and I have spares
