Quick/easy release for LiPo right angle brass battery connectors.

Hey Peps....

So you have just solded your battery cable to Brass right angle adapters instead of using a Dean's connector for your LiPo's.. to improve looks
or the fact you don't like how Deans connectors loosen over time and can produce a poor or dead circuit.

Thing is they can be tricky to pull out and a lot harder in a hurry when something goes wrong.

The Answer is a cable tie.

Place the Tie around the end of the cable just before the right angle and tighten.
Before you tighten all the way pass the end of the tie back under the loop to create a loop.

For extra security when soldering the connection add an extra piece of shrink on the cable and shrink the 2nd piece
of the remaining tail part of tie.

You now have a simple pull loop for 1 finger to pull the cable out fully or enough for you to get hold of it.

I hope this info helps people out...
