Then my other best guess is the infamous flux capacitor?

Sorry I wasn't able to figure it out!

Its just a connector with heat shrink tube on it to keep it from pulling apart.

Who put it there? They would know.

Cut away the heat shrink (Carefully) and see if there's a part # you could google. Then let us know.
Replace the heat shrink when done, of course.

A BEC and voltage regulator are the same thing. My guess is,it is a bank of high value capacitors used to filter ignition noise from your receiver.

I'm pretty certain it's a red flat thing.

I dare you tell me I'm wrong.

Kidding aside... If it's working - fly it!

I understand the shipping is very expensive. Inter-dimensional, y'know.
