    It's a good iron, use them for everything.

    Thank you sir will be placing my order in the next couple of day for the solder iron cleaner thanks for the info. Learn something every day. Will be interested to see how it works.

    I gues I could do a quick video for you on how it works.

  4. Connector tests, plus pictures
    Older version of that page, contains some other connectors

    Excellent site, do have a look at the controller-, motor-, charger-, power supply-, battery- etc. tests.

    Vriendelijke groeten ;) Ron

    i have used them all and prefer the xt plugs. app get slopoy and dont connect wellover time. Deans dont work well in low current applications and on high voltage setups get burnt when you plug in. xt 60 and the anti spark xt 90 are hard to beat..

    No spark, then input caps are dead and rest of controller will soon follow. Preferably taking plane with it [​IMG]
    Too long battery wires will kill ESC over time: precautions, solutions & workarounds

    On the other hand, too big a spark is bad for connectors. Not to mention your nerves.
    Solution: use a cheap extra sacrificial connector.
    The extra/very thin wire will reduce current, no need for resistor. You'll still hear a (weaker) spark as an ok signal/indication.
