When the ignitor leads are too far apart...

The leads on both my Pogo are too far apart to just twist together. And the motors on the Double Helices are really far apart...and are pointing in opposite directions.

I finally broke down and built a clip whip. I used the wire from an old, dead controller and six mini-alligator clips that I found in my parts bin. I don't know what I was waiting for!

When checking the resistance with my el-cheapo multimeter, the first one registered 0.7 ohms! I know my soldering skills suck, but c'mon. Luckily the meter read the same thing with the leads together...time for a fresh battery!
