has anyone had trouble joing these together. Mine are very tight. so tight that there not going all the way in and there is a fare gap between the joins. either the bullet ends or the speedy ends are too big or small depending on how you look at it. too really jam the motor ends in is crimping down the raised edges of the bullets

my wife says no more helis!!!!! " what's that dear, i cant hear you!"

I used a crescent wrench on the back side of each connector to avoid having pliers crush the connector or cut the insulating shrink tube.

they are tight but so is this heli mine is off the chain has great pull out and feels like a larger heli with all most the power of a 450. I'm using two 3 cell packs of Flightpower EVO25 2170 and I get about 5 to 6 min of mild 3D even if I push it hard I can get 5min stock Align Blades, motor and speed control, furaba 9650 all around 401 gyro.

Mine were too tight.

I resized the male plugs with a pliers for a proper fit.

Yup...
Too tight here too. It's the fault of the 4mm males. All other connectors of this style have a small gap at the end of the fingered sleeve. When the fingers are compressed together, the finger sleeve has to morph longer if it's to be squeezed smaller in diameter. The new bullet connectors just don't have this expansion gap. It's like trying to compress a liquid, can't be done.

Yeah, I know, you all need a picture to explain it better. Maybe later.

So many heli's - too little time...
