I guess better connectors for batteries are missing JK

When you order Logo 600 (when they will be back in stock) dont forget to grab few good connector. You going to loose power with Deans.

I wasn't aware of any other connectors...

I've only used deans...

Why would you lose power? and what is better?

Yeah, I'm also interested in why Deans will cause you to "lose power".

Deans are rated to 50amps. If you pull more than that the resistance will be too high. As the result you loose power, connectors overheating.

I use 4mm bullets on my big electric helis. If I remember right they rated to 120amps.

Tons of people use Deans on 10s, 12s and even larger packs.

Do you have any proof that you actually "loose" power with a Deans on a 10s or 12s setup???

Deans are very underrated.

Mr.Mel tested the deans at a set amp draw, he was losing alot of voltage across the deans at typical 10s peak amp draws.

I actually noticed a performance increase on my 6s logo 500se when I switched from deans to ec5's. That's an extreme case though, that heli was peaking at 190+ amps on 600mm blades.

The deans also wear out and increase their resistance after 50-100 flights. Arc burns are the main cause of this.
The ec5 connectors are better in every way and cheaper too.

I saw couple test too with the same results: deans are loosing too much power on big helis.

[quote]What about an eta on the kit?

Ready Heli usually gets shipments from Mikado on a weekly basis. Just call 'em up and ask them. Great customer service...they'll tell ya the real deal (-:

To each their own of course, but I prefer bullet connectors for the following reason:

They cost less than deans.
Easier to solder.
You can add the shrink tubing AFTER you solder the joint (how many times have you forgot to put the shrink tube on before you solder)?
The weld mark from sparking does not mark the contact mating surface like it does with Deans (it occurs on the tip of the male, and edge of the female, neither of which are contact surfaces when plugged in).
Thus, they last longer.
Their amp rating is higher.

But, to each their own of course (-:

Anybody using EC5s with an external BEC? The only thing holding me back from switching is the ease of soldering up the extra BEC wires with Deans. EC5s look a little more difficult to solder up.

I called readyheli and they said they were expecting them on Monday 3/1 and nothing as of yet.

As for your picture Eric the missing items are your cyclic servos and my batteries.

They'd be easier actually, just stuff the bec wires in the bullet with the esc wires, heat the bullet and feed solder in.

I used to like to do my bec wiring up closer to the esc though, strip 5mm off, solder on the bec leads, and slip heat shrink up over the esc leads to the bec wiring solder joint. Keeps the bec wires back out of harms way when you're changing packs.

i know some folks just use bullets, but how do you make sure they don't short? even if both have heat shrink, it still makes me nervous! Female on both battery connectors, one of each?

I'm currently using APP on my 12S logo 600 and 6S logo 600 but i wander if they are good enough and EC5's are a bit overkill for my smaller stuff.

Love this thread...all over, *SO* in that spirit: When soldering the EC5 connectors, are the wires thru the blue shield---then solder, then pull back into the blue shield? Or do you push them thru from the "bottom." Also, do you have to heat the shield up to soften it?

I've only used connectors with leads---that I solder onto batteries etc since it seems like I'd touch the battery leads in the process and I can't get the connectors "seated" well in the blue shield.

Thanks,
Tom

Here is a article on the Horizon site on soldering EC3's - it would be the same for EC5's. I recently soldered some EC5's. I found one of those cheap-o 60w irons worked best, but I'm no expert.
