The price of sold old futaba fp-s28 on eBay is massive $6, a new 3003 is about $10. I already had ordered the pack of connectors, so I decided to give that a try. I decided to not be lazy and take the body off the reissue grasshopper to copy the wiring positions in the connectors. The ones I ordered do not have a locator tab, so I can pull them and insert them 180 if needed.
Well... The crimp tool was a joke, it was tedious but easier to just crimp with needle nose pliers. I did one and inserted the pins into the connector. The second one, I tried to solder after crimping.... I'm guessing I used to much solder and it filled the female on, because that one doesn't want to push on. Then a wire pulled out of the first connector I did. So... I'm done for the evening, maybe I'll try again tomorrow, soldering both with just a touch of solder. I also need to do the power connectors.
