So, I was taking out my batteries that control the servos.
I noticed that one of the wires were pinched!:dumb: I also noticed that they were unreasonably long. So I cut them down to size, then took a piece of heat shrink tubing and reinforced the wires! Now, they lock into the notch and the remaining wire fits perfectly! Check it out.

The mod is desoldering the battery wires from the on and off switch and shortening them, then I put the piece of black heat shrink over both and shrunk and made a curve so it locks into the notch. What it does is prevents you from pinching the wires when reinstalling the battery pack and screwing it down.

Why when you canjust get a pair of dykes and cut them then and them use a ton of electrical and tape it in place. Plus the added bonus for using tape instead of soldering it leave a ton of things to go wrong in the future.
