Connector Question

I just got a Zippy Compact battery that came with 5mm gold connectors and I think the wires are 4mm. So can anyone recommend an appropriate connector. I don't like the idea of using the separate push on connectors.

I'm not sure what "appropriate" means to you.

I use EC3s on all my smaller lower current stuff and EC5s on all my bigger stuff. But other people use Deans, XT60s, HXTs, Power Poles, etc. Generally it's best to standardize on something that you can easily obtain or is the default choice of your favorite battery supplier. (The latter is hard with HobbyKing because they seem to change connectors a lot.)

If you fly at a club field, choosing whatever most other people there fly can be convenient as well.
