    Got mine yesterday- excellent quality, easy install.
    Waiting for the wind to die down to test it out.:)

    I put one in my crash test solo
    not going to post videos because the gimbal in this one is misbehaving and not really fair to the mod
    could tell a big positive difference though
    will put in solo prime and post videos

    Glad to hear about the tentatively positive results. I've been apprehensive that people wouldn't see the improvement I have.

    I saw positive results no doubt
    the cable cant fix a bad gimbal though, so I am in no way disappointed. I think on the other solo it will be amazing

    Wow, that's amazing, orangutans are much smarter but have big hands.....I was referring to the patch cable's installation, so simple a monkey could do it...

    Installed this on my #1 Solo. This upgrade removed the last of some minor vibration I was getting when vertically accelerating. I had done all the other mods including Moongels, flat HDMI cable and the earplug fillers. Thanks again for your time and effort providing this to the community.

    Thanks everyone, as of yesterday (the12th), cables are in the mail for anyone who's ordered them. Domestic shipping seems to be averaging 3 to 5 days, and the few I've sent internationally have been about 2 weeks.

    If I've missed anyone, let me know. If I've followed up with my paypal address, then you're cables are in the mail.

    Thanks again!

    Just got mine through - less than a week to the UK, just in time for the weekend. They are incredibly pliable and I can see what a difference they must make. Thanks again @Username, looking forward to the mod.

    Off to get Solo#1 ready for surgery :)

    Just received the cable! My drone has the newer data cable, without the jacket. Any tips or pictures on how best to install the new soft extension cable? I strugle to keep the data cable from touching the body several places.

    First page, first post. It does require more than a little 'shaping' of the stock cable to arrange everything.

    Now, if only I could get less than 25kt winds for a couple hours...

    From the one picture I've seen of the newer cable without the jacket, it looks like it's more or less the same length as the earlier cables. You could try bundling the stock cable together with a few small zip ties, or even just some electrical tape, and then shaping it as in the picture on page 1 of this thread. I don't think you need to worry about making the stock cable a little stiffer in the process, it's unlikely you'd be able to make it anywhere near as stiff as the jacketed cable unless you used 100 zip ties!
