I had a productive morning after deciding no more cogitating, flatulating or any other .. ating for that matter, and got on with fitting the EC5 connectors.

I take your point Andy48. That said and given the low cost of them, I am not expecting much of a life out these two lipos. They are probably only going to be used for a few test flights thereupon I will revert to buying the equivalent capacity Hacker TopFuel lipos which is my preferred brand. Nevertheless this exercise has been an interesting learning curve if only to appreciate how many differing/alternative views are to be had on this forum.

If only all lipo sellers offered the same service as Component Shop - whom offer the choice of several types of connector at the point of ordering - then it would make life a little easier/simpler.

Hobby King offer a choice of several different connectors on their Lipos

I was under the impression that Sermos and Anderson Powerpole were the same. True? I was told some years ago that the Sermos had one or two different Amp rating available. Hobby shop is no help. I am going to guess that either is good for 30 Amps which is all I need right now. Any thoughts? Bob C

I don't really do Hobbyking Tom, preferring to keep my business in the UK if at all possible. It's the use it or lose it thing................
