Here is my dilema. I started to install my align 35a ESC in my B400 because I bought the Jazz Kontronics for Copterx and I noticed that the bullet connectors for the Eflight motor do not match up with the Align ESC. Well I took out my Align 430XL motor out of the copterx because I bought a scorpion motor for it.

Here is my dilema. Should I install the Align motor in the B400 or should I keep the Eflight motor and soder new bullet connectors on the Align ESC? Which motor is better?

OK I did some probing and it seems I may have to cut my Align 450 sev2 canopy inorder to get it to fit. If someone can confirm this then I may not switch motors. How much of a pain in the arse is it to soder bullet connectors?

The 430XL is heavier and has slightly more power (350W) than the E-flite motor.

Well I just measured the difference in motor sizes with my canopy and even with the wires it will still fit.

their not to hard, they should have a hole in the side, just stick your solder tip in it and heat it up then fill it up with solder. then take the wire and heat it up and add some solder to it. then take the bullet connector and reheat it up till the solder inside melts and stick wire in it and remove the solder tip and hold wire steady till solder gets hard

got it thanks. I'm going to just change out the eflight motor's connectors to be able to fit the align ESC. Then I will be able to run either motor if I choose. Thanks guys.
