Anyone out there using this?

Seems like a good idea, but I'm not a fan of Dean's connectors.

I've heard that the T-plugs come loose on this one, besides I wouldn't use Deans (T-plugs) on this HV heli. EC5 connectors http://www.progressiverc.com/female-...s-4-count.html

or PRC6 connectors are recommended http://www.progressiverc.com/prc6-co...s-2-pairs.html

Then you can use a series connection to power your motor

I don't use the battery serial connector either. I use ec5s with a serial configuration on the esc wires....

That's the way I'm leaning, just looked like a cleaner solution, but as I stated before I don't like Dean's connectors.

I'm not a big fan of deans connectors either, but I like the clean look the adapter offers, and I have not had one come loose.

Installed one on my DFC. Cool thing it looks like it came with the heli matching up with the side frame pattern. Very nice clean look. Also used 3m tape between the frame on connector.

That looks really good and simple. I have always used Deans and never had an issue to date. That is probably what i would go with.

I use the EC5 connector cable as shown above,this is hidden under the canopy so you can't see any connections whatsoever and nothing bolted to the sideframe.

If i wanted it hidden it would have been hidden...i have it out like that so it can be easily disconnected in a mishap without having to take the canopy off.
