What plug on ESC

Fellow Fliers need to know what plug you would prefer on your ESC.

Deans or EC3?

Currently we are bringing all models in with Deans or "T" plug as known in China.

Thanks for the replies>

Everyone has their own opinion on what is the "best" connector. But since this is a poll, and you're looking for votes, I voted Deans. Because I use Deans.

I personally hate Deans. If I had a preference I would like XT60's on esc's of 80 amps or less and EC5's on larger esc's.
XT60's are much easier to solder the EC3's and will carry considerably more than the 60 amps they are rated for.

Deans. I have Deans on everything and I always end up having to cut off connector and new purchase and re-solder a dean.

I think they should come with no connectors and have a option that you can add connector of your choice at check out

I prefer either the XT60s or the XT90s depending on the app.

I just recently switched all of my EC5's to XT90's. Very good connector and easy to solder.

EC3 or XT60. Deans are hard to solder and use. Less contact area.
