Great info - thank you.

Your thoughts about the gold plating wearing off or in the case of tinned terminals, ten tinning wearing off and oxidation occurring that would increase resistance?

Great info thanks. So to summerize, a little slack so as to not pull on the Rx, strain relief and a lot of care disconnecting, and expect to eventually see a failure.

One For The Wind

I just got the UMX Beast and the Sbach 342. Both have the AS3X and both are pretty amazing in the wind. We were in 10+ mph the other day with gusting another 3-4 mph. Very stable.

To loctite or not to loctite

Loctite is also available in a tube / paste. Similar to Chapstick. I've used both with good success. I also use CA on bolt / screw head edges. Works much like the nail polish suggestion.
