Man I gotta tell you. For those with planes up to 6S and helis, scrap those deans connectors, these blow them out of the water!!!


You can solder the back tab, push on em forever, no worry of leaking solder into the spring tab, awesome connection to. Not usual to promote out of country crap, especially HK but hey these work a treat I tell you, and five pairs for 4 bucks, pretty good!
Once upon a time there were Nitros, Flybars & Frequency pins

Re: Electric planes and helis, scrap those deans connectors!

They look to be just a bad copy of the old Astro Zero Loss connectors.
I wonder if Astro Bob will go after them now just like Deans did.
Too bad the rear of the pin is exposed and you have to add shrink unlike the astros.
Oh wait. I see why the pin is exposed. You can't remove the pin from the shell for soldering.
At least the price is right, if you can get them.

Re: Electric planes and helis, scrap those deans connectors!

I have them and they are fine. Similar friction to the Deans, and easier to slide on and off than the Parkzone EC3 Connector.

The bonus? The Parkzone EC3 FEMALE is compatable with the male XT60. And they are still easier to get on/off than EC3 to EC3 connections. So if you hve parkone batteries, you dont have to change the connector. (I also bought some EC3's from HK and use the females on my batteries and the male XT60's on my ESC's. EC3's are 10/pak whereas XT60's are 5/pack)

Another tip? If you need motor plugs, buy a set of EC3 Connectors. A 10 pack has 20 pairs of connectors, where as just buying a set of motor connectors just has 10 pairs.

HC makes these, a great alternative to Deans for high power (100A), and very cheap.

4mm gold plated bullet connectors are the way to go, lighter than a Deans type and easier to solder, just use a piece of shrink tubing to insulate them ( easily Replaceable). positive contact and will take all the power you can throw at them
The only "stupid question" is the one you don't ask.
