I ordered the xk x500-a aircam and wires have disconnected from the gimbal controller

The wires connected to the plug into the gimbal controller and cannot be reconnected to it. I need the plug with pigtails coming out of it to solder the wires to the pigtails to be able to fix it. Anyone know where I can find one of these connectors with pigtails? It is the four wire connector. This seems to be an extremely fragile connection and they pulled out on the very first flight.

    Thanks. I will try to take one later and post it the next time I get to the library.

    Assaulted with a soldering iron ... dang! Lol!

    Looks like JST ZH connectors, but cannot tell the pitch of yours. Can you measure how far the pins are apart?

    https://hobbyking.com/en_us/200mm-5-pin-molex-jr-to-4-pin-white-connector-lead.html Can I cut the black part off and splice into the wires coming out of the white connector? Is this the same connector as shown in my pictures?

    If the white connector is the same, then sure you can.

    How can I find out if the white connector is the same. Will Hobby King customer service be able to tell m

    If you measure the pin spacing it will help get the correct plugs.

    Thanks WTWUK I will try to get that pin spacing. Gotta dig through the shed for my digital calipers. I really do appreciate the help.
