Answered: Electronic Repairs

I would like to clarify some things about rule R15-C. What is the definition of “external wires?” Are the headers of wires on motors and sensors considered part of the “external wires?” If the pins of a motor are broken, is it legal to solder a portion of wire with a replacement header from an extension provided that the original length of the motor wire is preserved? If this is legal, must the donor wire have to be an extension that has exactly identical headers, or may wires such as these be used?

No, they are not.

This type of repair does not fall under the realm of <R15c> (quoted below), thus it is illegal.

Alright then. Thanks, Karthik!

You’re welcome!
