Step 1: Materials:
- Micro R/C helicopter
- Stranded wire
- Wire stripper
Step 2: Step 1
Strip the wire and separate the strands.
Step 3: Step 2
Gently bend the wire in half and start twisting it onto the upper rotor or stabilizer. Twist it tightly with the pliers. Don't do too many twists, or the wire won't fit on the bottom joint.
Twist until the last twits hits the top of the bottom joint when the stabilizer and rotor are level.
Step 4: Step 3
Put the wire around the bottom joint and twits around it. Cut off the excess wire.
Do this to the other side, or the wire will bend, affecting performance, and eventually break.
