Hi all I am about to start wiring up electrics to model plane. I need some brass bullet connectors. I would like to stock up some connectors for further use. Max watts I use is about 200watts ever. What dia. Connectors are the norm. Thanks

Brass? Most are Gold Plated.

Might I suggest you start from a differing base if you are thinking about battery to plane connections, as the commonest type of connector on battery packs is now XT60 and for low current red JST?

If you are just considering the ESC to Motor connectors, again, look at what is supplied with the motors and ESCs you will be using, usually 3.5 or 4mm in that power range.

Most small to medium size motors are supplied with male 3.5mm bullet connectors already fitted so you will need the female side of these for the ESC unless they also already have them fitted [which isn't so common]. HK don't seem to supply the female 3.5mm bullet connectors without the males but at the price...

Sorry Dave, not enough info given. Yes it's motor to Esc connectors I need. 3.4 to 4mm seems to be in the right ball park too. Life RCG stock them at reesonable price. Would similar size heat shrink be suitable ?. Thanks both.
