Default Guide Flag Braids

How do I put the braids into my guide flag? Before I start soldering the wires, I want to figure out how to get my braids to fit snugly into the flag.

If you are talking about the usual commercial raceway 1/24th guide flag the braids for those should have a brass tab crimped on one end and that plugs into the guide flag. The lead wires should have spades soldered to the ends and the spades get jammed into the guide flag to lock the braids in place.

Depends greatly...on the flag style.
Some use similar styles of brush insertion, some use other methods.

What brand do you have (picture?) ?

The guide flag that I'm using is the one that came with my Parma Edge kit.

Here is a picture that shows how it should go. It is easier to insert the spade first, followed by the braid .



If you don't have spades for the ends of your motor wires you can insert the bare ends into the slots in the top of the flag, then insert the braids.
