FYI

Connectors - Most if not all of the LiPo's from HK come with the XT-60 connectors.  I used them and find them very good, but they do need to be soldered, which is no big deal to most of us.  They are also cheap  5 pairs for $3.99.

I would not be without one of these or a metal box of some sort for charging.  Only $1.99 for sm and $2.99 for large.

Bullet Conectors

A lot of HK high current batteries are now coming with 4mm and 5mm bullet conectors.  These need to be soldered with they suggest a 100 to 150 watt iron.
