Another problem

Black cover teared off when flying in 40m. I had very fast raise to about 50m ( 9,61 m/s). Shortly after that the 6-pin connector between navi and flight was seen dropping. Below was water, so they both sanked. Wind was some 6m/s.
Luckily I could change to free flight when I noticed that position hold did not work anymore.

So, where can I get better cover? My mother's Tupperware? Should I bore a hole to cap?
How can I tighten the connectors? The 6-pin connector has some tensions and it jumps away very easily. I did check connectors before flight.

Elastic band around the connectors works fine

I use some hot glue on the connectors, keep them thight and easy to remove.

Thanks

I will try rubber bands or make connectors with longer, flexible(if found?) ribbon.

Bend 1 one of the connectors legs a bit, the will make a secure fit. Really wouldn't use hotglue. Must be hell'ish if you have to rebuild some day.

With the covr, if you use a std mk frame, you can use the spacers as threading for a screw securing the cover.
