Placed my order on 12/6 and made a mistake on the motor I ordered. I spoke with Nina via love chat that night and she changed the order.

Today the order arrived here in Michigan so 10 days from order which I consider VERY fast and it is the motor I wanted.

Service, speed, and great prices. Liking this place. The only down side is that the motor doesn't come with the mount, screws, connectors, etc but that is minor.

I have been using Deans with Shrink over them. HAs anyone tried these connectors with original deans. I have found most have problems when mixed with genuine deans. They are very difficult to connect and disconnect. Just wondering?

Yes I have used them with original Dean's; they work just fine, and actually due to the ribs are superior to the originals, (IMHO). Order them while they're available, Hobby City no longer carries them.

Deans Connectors

Thank You Sonny1.
I have used the deans for some time and have always liked them but after buying some from an ebay vendor I had trouble with them and my son was not able to disconnect his batteries on his birds at all. I found the tolerances on the none deans connectors to be lacking. Thanks for the feedback and I will be ordering shortly.
P.S. Does anyone know of a source for the old three pin mini deans connectors. These where on the old Kraft radios and all my chargers have them.

Thanks again Sonny1

You're very welcome, I use the "ribbed" Dean's connectors almost exclusively now because they are so much easier to separate. I don't know if RCT has the old 3 pin mini's, but they do have mini-Dean knockoffs, and I just noticed these: http://www.rctimer.com/index.php?app=goods&id=336 . They look like regular size connectors, but are apparently "mini". Here are the regular "mini Dean's knock-offs": http://www.rctimer.com/index.php?app=goods&id=337 . I can recommend RCTimer too as honest and attentive to their customers, and shipping is just as quick and cheaper than other Chinese dealers; order with confidence.

I've also purchased and used the Dean's with grips and they work fine with the original Ultra Dean's. I actually like them better because the connectors don't shift if my iron gets too hot. But you will need to get some shrink tubing since that was not supplied with my order.

Also, the 3.5mm gold connectors work fine with my other 3.5mm gold connectors!

Good Stuff from RC Timer!

Anyone know what "Has not delivered goods" as the status on your order means?

Order 2009122053324 placed on 12/20 and not shipped yet.

I finally got a chance to flight-test the RCTimer 2830-13 850kv outrunner brushless motor: http://www.rctimer.com/index.php?app=goods&spec_id=146, (which was a replacement for a defective motor mentioned earlier in this thread; Nina replaced it w/ no problem or hesitation btw). I installed it in a 2M WS EP sailplane using 3S 2200mah 25C lipo, 30A Volcano esc & Graupner 11x6 folding prop. Bench tests showed a steady 17-19A with that setup at WOT. The flight-test was very satisfactory, producing 90 degree climbouts, actually requiring substantial "down-elevator" at WOT to keep it from power-looping on climbout. The only thing I noticed was the motor was quite hot after the flight; not too hot to touch, but very close. This motor performed very well in my application, though I would hesitate to run it at that amp-draw for continuous sport flight. The motor is rated at 30A max, but I doubt if the motor could actually handle that much amperage safely for more than short bursts. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this motor, especially with it's very low price. I used this motor to replace a Rimfire 28-30-950 which cost nearly $50, and it performed far better on this particular airplane than the Rimfire. Thanks Nina for your help, I look forward to many more flights with my RCTimer motor!
