"The best reason to buy the clone boards is that they all use Picoblade rather than DF13."

"Exactly DF13 are absolute garbage, they are basically plugin once and replace next time. They are too easy or fragile and can break and its not worth taking the risk thinking the connection is there."

"This is "best practice" for me on almost all connectors which rely on friction.  Normal hot glue has the benefit of being pretty easy to remove in this kind of application (plastic to plastic)"

"assalamu 'alaikum, yes you guys are correct the original power cables on the APM 2.5/2.6 are short, the Pixhawk ones are much longer. I extended mine by 6-7cm just so it would fit on my TBS Discovery. There are places you can get longer ones…"

"I've shaved the locking tabs on my cables by a fraction of a hair and haven't had problems unplugging since. If you don't take too much off, they will not come out on their own, but will come out with a tug without feeling like…"

"Hey Serg, As Iam mentioned I had the same issue occur in Montana where GPS was lost and the plane headed for the ground at full throttle.  We have been hot gluing our connectors as well.  One thing for certain with these GPS failures we…"

"Hey Serge, Chuck experienced a similar situation in Montana with a loss of GPS just after takeoff. Maybe the cause was simply the GPS connector. I'm still mystified how a GPS failure could cause such a dive. Tridge hasn't gotten to the…"

"Sounds like going back to servo connectors (aka .1" pins) should be considered, despite the bulk.   Or Solder through hole terminals, less convenient but still a comparative gold standard for reliability.  "

"I liked servo conectors. the new ones are hard to unplug and easy to damage, I cant have all the equipment for all my vehicles, and conecting and disconectig telem and gps is very dangerous.... this doesnt use to be a problem with servo conectors."

"The problem I have with the recent ones 3DR manufactures are actually that they are too difficult to disconnect without using special tools. It is very easy to damage them if one is not careful. I have not had any problems with the original 3DR…"

""Non 3DR GPS units all have one thing in common...BAD connectors" Unfortunately, this is exactly the same thing for 3DR GPS, compass and power module. "

"I'm using tent stakes at rear legs. I wonder how brettbb gets away without using them. I started using them when the shuttle caught the prop as the entire launcher lunged forward. In the video, the stakes were in loose dry soil so they did not…"

"I'm working in a modified  Brett catapult too for a skywalker plane, I post photos when i finish, perhaps this weekend :) I'm think to put two tent stakes backward the catapult "
