Plugs n stuff.

try drilling the serial computer plugs and socket mounting plates apart some ive used (once you get rid of the metal,)the plastic body can be split they are not welded and come apart easy u can use the pins and sockets individually or as is,depending on brand each pair of pin and socket can pass 2 to 5 amps ,even glued together without the metal are very lightweight and if useing for brushless motor connection you can wire 3 pins per phase. i am going to make a plain fibre glass circuit board similar to the others in previous pics, but make it pear shaped and glue the pin half to it and solder the coil wires directly on to three pins per phase. these d series connectors would be also handy in other applications such as shorting plugs ,switch.ect.best part is there cheap as ,gold plated,and any old computer has them. just need some heat shrink on esc leads,and you dont have to have a tug of war to get them apart.
