BL to ESC connectors

What are you guys using to connect your brushless motor to the ESC? Or are you just hardwiring? What do you guys suggest?

For lightweight planes (ShockFlyers ... AXI and PJS) I just solder the wires directly. On bigger motors I use 3.5mm bullet connectors.

Because I swap motors I use 3.5mm bullets. Easy to use and simple to swap a pair of leads on BL to reverse rotation.

Note that CC and other ESC manufacturers recommend direct solder as the preferred solution.
