I have been Searching around the internet for quiet a while trying to find some decent connectors, something that looks nice and does the intended job All my setups currently have deans.
As a electronics hobbyist and Audio amps building/sound engineering background helped me a great deal in making it a breeze soldering Deans connectors.
They are great little connectors for what they are worth but as for me with large setups currently 6s and 8s I disliked the large spark when connecting which is normal but it made some nasty arcing on the connectors saw some bad pitting on the surface they are so close to each other probably bad for the battery too and so the quest went on..until I found Anderson Powerpoles
Basically I was looking for something clean and neat setup And goes together with minimal effort being a Airframe and Powerplant Mechanic always knew that crimping is the preferred and superior method and very rarely does anybody solder on aircraft these days.
After getting introduced to Anderson Powerpoles wondered how I ever missed these little connectors so I started to do some research and a great deal of information but mostly divided among the deans and APP
So after much thought decided to go ahead with APP and give them a shot so here I am writing so I will try and post as much Info as I can collect to help others.
Im not saying to take my advice and go change out all your connections. Please make your own choice as they say to each his own..
Heres couple of links...
Crimping VS Soldering..
Very neat video check it out...somethings need to be proved...
