I use clear heat shrink, lower temperature and high shrink ratio. Makes a very tight connection without worrying about putting too much heat into the plastic

If one searches Digi-Key, you will find about a million connectors.

There are various options for clear heat shrink tubing on Amazon.

I usually get it from Mouser or DigiKey where I also get my "One-Kilk" style connectors for building multiple servos into one connector (such as on my X-Cub, landing lights, flap, and aileron servos are all into 1 connector on the wing
