    I have an FC40 and from taking batteries on and during a 4 battery flying session really does a number on the XT60 connections and the wires. No matter how hard I try to only tough the yellow parts I still end up wearing on the wires a bit. I feel like over time I might break one I don't protect them. I was thinking something like this:

    Which I found to protect the parlance plug or another alternative would be an very short extension that I could put in between the battery and the phantoms connector. That way if it broke from pulling to hard it souls break the extension and not the actual phantom.

    Anyone ever heard of anything that will protect the XT60 connection????
