View Full Version : Wanted: Astro Connectors - Got some, thanks.
02-19-2010, 08:26 AM
Anyone out there got two or three pairs of 2-pin Astro Zero Loss connectors (so-called motor side and battery side) #525, #526 or #527? New or used but in good condition, even if leads cut off short?
I plan to put them on my Triton and other chargers and on the various 12volt sources.
Let me know what you have, please.
Edit: Someone was generous enough to send me some free, gratis and for nothing -
many thanks Dave.

Iím afraid that although I also use AstroFlight zero loss connectors I donít have any extra to help you out. If you are having problems finding these items they can be ordered from Great Hobbies @ http://www.greathobbies.com/productinfo/?prod_id=AST525 .
I know that I always pick up a few whenever I see them in my local hobby store because they are not well known, kind of expensive and Iím afraid that someday they will not be available at all, making if necessary to replace all the connectors Iíve currently got on battery chargers, batteries and speed controllers.
Good luck in finding these great connectors.

Thanks Jim - actually Dave Thacker of RadicalRC carries them and I have done good business with him, especially crystal swaps but they're pricey at $7 for the motor side and $15 for the battery side (let's not get into sex here!). That disparity bothers me and anyhow, I had hoped that someone might have stopped using them or had some cut offs lying around, cheap. I fly small electrics and 2mm or JST connectors are OK for them.
Someone at a recent swap-shop had a couple of pairs at $5 each and I scooped them up!!
PS Just checked G-H and they have the price disparity and although a bit more pricey, not much if you take into account exchange - hhmmmm!
