I just layed some test lead wire for show, I use 8 gauge. Good eye.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

I love the idea of the Power Poles but cant get over the 45 amp rating. I have read the fact sheet from Anderson and it talks about them being able to handle more than the rated amps.
The only other down side is the cost of the crimping tool (40$).
I have a MSH Protos on EC5's at the moment and am really tempted.
The wire max guage for the 45 amp connector is 10 guage which is the size of my Turnigy packs. Does that make it ok?

More days at home would be nice!

EC5 are great. Almost 270 flights on 12s and still going strong.

EC5 on anything 6S and larger, for smaller the XT80 connectors.

...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

I use the 45amp power poles for connecting my chargers to power supplies, but I don't think I would trust them for a flight pack. I think they disconnect too easily. Maybe the 75amp connectors are tighter. I use EC5's for the larger than 6S flight packs.

Will the EC-5 handle 8 gauge wire?

Just tin the ends of the wire and shave them a little on a bench grinder. Drop right in
