I'm also looking for XNova ESC bullets. Any update on where to buy them? I can't find them anywhere

EDIT: I found these, which seem to be almost identical:

I've always used Castle Creations bullet connectors on all my ESCs and motors, mainly to keep connectors consistent from heli to heli. However, the CC bullet connectors have gotten kind of expensive lately (unclear why that is). The ProTek 6.5mm bullet connectors are fully compatible with the CC 6.5mm bullet connectors. I am not aware of other bullet connectors compatible with the CC 5.5mm bullet connectors.

I use the KONTRONIK Gold 6mm connectors on all my motor to ESC connections. They're very easy to solder and the length when connected is short making them easy to route those wires.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of connectors that have a full cup design vs. connectors that have a half cup design?


Full cup





Half cup

I find it simpler to tin the connector, add some solder to the cup, and press the wire in place with the iron tip and once the whole thing reflows the heat is removed, it's done. Getting the cup full of molten solder stores a lot of heat that I find contributes to wicking. YMMV.
