I think you will find that the connectors weigh more than you think.
I was originally going to use 2mm connectors but when I weighed a complete set decided not too. I used a standard servo connector instead (which can be easily reversed to get the motor to spin the right direction).

Yes nice job. Are you planning on using the spinner?

Also, I'm just wondering, can you reverse the shaft of the HK 10g brushless outrunners (and for that matter the 5g outrunners)? If you can, I think by far the easiest and lightest way to mount these would be a little firewall directly at the very nose of the plane (where the 'scale engine' piece would go).
