Default Help HSD Wing Connector repair!!!

Hello,

After a crash of a friend's HSD Super Viper, 2 wing connectors had their wires broken, any idea how to repair same as the brass pin left is rather small to have it soldered and it seems that replacement connectors not available in stock.
Appreciate ideas and help in this respect. please see photo below.
Thanks

I had a similar situation on a car a while back. It was the connector to the mass air flow sensor. I forced a steel pin into the remaining stub such that good contact was made. Dremel off the rest of the pin leaving a decent length to solder to. Then I soldered the wire to that expose pin. Using epoxy, I then completely encased the wire/pin/socket. Lasted for the life of the car. Probably rough up the exterior of the pin with sand paper to get it to accept the solder better.

A small enought brass tube to solder over the remaining pins, add the soldering material to the tube first then insert it over quickly and hope for the best.

I've seen a few broken HSD jet adds on RCG, a wanted add on RCG is not a bad idea.

Good luck.

Welcome.

Here is one of the adds that I was talking about, find out who has the broken plane and he may sell you the part you need.

Good luck.

Carlos,

Thanks for the add but unfortunately the HSD F-16 has a different type of wing connectors. However the idea of a "wanted" add is also good.
Thanks a million.
