Is there any place where I can buy the 1s batteries for 120 SR with the mini deans connectors; I don't mind changing the connector on my heli but it is too much work to change the connector on the battery.

No offense, but if it is too much work, then I guess that means stick with JST

OR ... you could go and make yourself ONE adapter from JST to mini deans (umhh yeah, that might weigh an extra 0.77g (.) but it saves you A LOT of work

There are a lot of adapters out there or find a mini deans deal on eBay and solder on. It's all easy. There are no 1s 500-600 batteries this size with mini-deans. The other option is to get a new set of skids that allow different size batteries. Then, you could find other 500-1300mah batteries to fly with mini-deans.

Seems like I have not searched hard enough but I did try researching instructions and video to convert JST to Mini-deans on RCG & other forums with no luck. Can you please refer me to any good source.

No offense at all; I am very new to this hobby recently since Dec (got hooked flying my 3yr old's Christmas gift - a toy grade 2-ch coax).

It is not about too much work but rather I am complete noob although I have read a lot recently and have some knowledge of the heli types, battery types, power supplies, etc.. I have a soldering gun but barely soldered anything with it...

I have now new 120 SR, DX8, Phoenix Sim and BF-109 which I am too scared to fly right now... Would like to graduate to the CP helis and build my own 3D planes at some time in future; the thing that stops me are my children (4yr & 2yr old).... Not to forget my other time hoggers - motorcylces and car fixes (you can imagine amount of work maintaining a BMW 540 ... phew...

Bottom line... I am a noob, crunched for time and cannot wait to graduate further...

Hey Noob JK LOL

I noticed your fear of the maiden on your BF109. I was wondering if it happens to be a Parkzone. If not, I don't know much about your plane. If so, your fear is probably a good thing or you may have crashed it allready.

I have a PZ BF109G and it is a bugger to take off and land. It has a mean LH torque factor that pulls the plane hard left on take-off.
Phoenix sim has this model and you can see what I am talking about by flying the sim. I would not put the plane in the air until you have mastered the sim, or a crash is highly likely.

Good Luck from a Fellow Noob!

wouldnt that sort of defeat the purpos, which is to get rid of the JST connector?

In any case, I dont see the point either way. mini deans are LAME. its not only possible but probable to short out a battery with them. Because of the designe, its possible to have the pin on one side touch both the socket and the pin on the battery at the same time.... Years ago there was a guy whos model burned up in his car do to this. After that and having my own battery short (BIG spark) I got rid of all my mini deans.

In this application, the JST work fine. If I decided I just HAD to change, I would probably go with a losi style.

Thanks for the info & advice; for now I think it is best to put off plans switching to mini deans.

Correct SAX the msr is a great trainer indoors for the 120SR the msrx was too much for me to handle for my flying skills..Thanks I have been doing quite well for 89 and a half yrs now..Good to be back on the thread ..all the best .Happy flying

Hi Joe and welcome. Exactly which plug are you referring to? A pic would be a plus.

Hello,

My father broke 3 tail rotors in an afternoon (don t ask me how), and when I tried to buy some, the good surprise, 4 euro a rotor... A bit the impression of being stolen.. So I would like to know if some other rotors are compatible with the sr120 tail motor ? As for example some Walkera rotors ? Or NE solo pro 328 rotor ?

Thank you
