Logo 600 ESC connectors?
I am starting to get things together to build a Logo 600. I am currently using Deans connectors on all of my other stuff and I am looking to convert everything over to a common connector. I am looking at using the ProTek 3.5mm "MaxxCurrent" XT60 connectors from http://www.Amainhobbies.com (# PTK-50-30)

Let me know what you guys think about using them or if there is a different connector that I should be looking at using.

Thanks

You will find that there is a large percentage of Logo flyers that use the EC5 connecters, myself included. They are rated at 120A continuous, polarized, and relatively easy to solder (for people like me that find that task difficult )╘ₒ₲ₒ 6°° ƺƉ ṾЪ∂®

+1 for EC5's. I found deans to get quite hot and wear out on larger machines. I now use EC5 on my Logo and TDR with excellent luck so far.

Buy in bulk from Hobby King, $1.79 per pair. Compared to $7.29 that E-Flite/Horizon charges for the exact same thing.

I know that the lower the cell count, the more amps a system will pull...I think. Will a 10s setup pull considerable more amps than a 12s setup? I am looking at the XT60 connectors because I can use them all of my heli's. The XT150's look to big to run on a 450 sized heli and a Logo 400. Will the XT60's work for a 10s setup? I think they use a 3.5mm bullet connector if I am not mistaken.

Thanks for all of the help and input everybody!!!

I bought my EC5 plugs from ProgressiveRC. I also bought some from Hobby King. But the bullets on the two are not the same. They probably fit perfectly together but I havent tried yet.arhennie

Hey Torch, longtime no see,

A 3.5mm connector might be on the small side for a Logo 600 and the amps that it draws. Check the amp rating of any connector you're considering. Deans have a continuous rating of 50 amps as I recall, and they can get quite warm on 10S during aggressive 3D flying with a Logo 600.

We have used 4mm bullets for the past few years (rated at 100 amps), and although they worked well, as Kyle has gotten more and more aggressive this last year, even they were getting warm.

As you can see from the posts, the ES5 is popular, which is as stated a 5.5mm bullet (usually rated in the 150 amp range), in a plastic housing. We don't use them because, since both connectors are in the same housing, it forces you to use extra wiring to get your packs wired in series when you plug-up to fly. We use 5.5mm bullets, but individual / separate connectors on each battery wire. That way you can plug your packs "in series" for flight, without any extra wiring or "harnesses".

My bottom line suggestion is to not go smaller than 4mm bullets.

The plus thing about the EC5 housing is that it protects u against plugging them in incorrectly...which can be a good thing....I thought of going straight 5.5 plugs but prefer the extra protection....

We should all take special care when plugging in any battery, using any connector, as it is still possible to short an EC5.

I agree with the use of 5.5mm separate. It is as simple as the high side of battery one connects with the low side of battery 2, then the ground (low side) of battery one and the high side of battery 2 becomes the hot and ground respectively going to the ESC
