Source for 1 green dot brick connector

I had a old broken estes plane in my junk stash and noticed that the wing to fuselage connector was smaller than a JST and looks a lot like the new AR6400 connector, so I soldered the female onto one of my green dot's.

I wish I had more junk sky rangers laying around...

It may not be the exact connector for the new linear servo, but since I have both a male and a female, that shouldn't be a problem.

Also, if the order of the pins is different on the new servos, it's easy to swap them around in these connectors.

Read this thread, you will find many connectors from regular servos down to 1.0mm;

Maybe you could figure out how to solder the actual Female connector to the board somehow and get rid of those leads! Would be stronger, neater and sexier too.

Oh, I almost forgot.

The other great thing about the female connector from the estes sky cruiser (I remembered the name) is that it plugs right into the plug on the 3A Brushless ESC from Hobby city, so the 5th channel can be mixed with the throttle channel for Brushless operation without a converter and the brick is plug and play.

Do You need to have the lipo connection left or can the esc leads power the rx thru the servo connections as it normaly does. Or do You power the esc/motor thru the rx?
Just wondering since i dont believe pulling 3 amps thru the rx would be safe.

Need all info i can get since i ordered 2 rxes yesturday.

I'm going to run separate Positive and negative wires to the ESC power wires from the battery wires and power the brick normally.

The voltage will all be the same, but the brick probably wouldn't like the amp draw through the servo connector.

what about feeding the brick from the ESC thrue the servo connector like on other RXes? Would the servos pull too much amp that way ?
