Step 2: Tools Needed...
Step 3: Cut ONE Wire
Go through all the steps with one wire then repeat for the next wire because it's never a good idea to have possible short hazards especially with lipo batteries!
Step 4: Strip 2-4mm of Insulation
Once stripped tin the wire with a little solder.
Step 5: Slide Some Heat Shrink Over the Wire
make sure the wire is completely cooled from tinning and place some heat shrink over and slide to the bottom.
Step 6: Tin the XT30 Connectors
heat the little tube for a second or two with your iron and fill it with solder
Step 7: Solder the Tinned Wire Onto the Xt30
Please ensure you are wiring the polarity correctly (there are indicators at either side of the XT30 connector)
Then its just a simple case of lining the wire up with the cut out part of the connector and giving it a few seconds of heat from your soldering iron.
Step 8: Shrink Your Heat Shrink Over the Connection You Have Just Made.
Make sure the joint has completely cooled from the previous step and slide your heat shrink over the joint and add a little heat from a hot air gun or a lighter.
Step 9: Finished Battery With XT30
Plug it in and fly knowing everything is just that little bit safer!
