Which connectors and mounts for Little Screamers?

What size of bullet type connectors should I use for my Little Screamers motor? Hobby-Lobby has the MP Jet gold connectors that are 1.8mm, are these the ones?
I'm also looking for the best way to mount the motor to a Shockflyer F3A, Hobby-Lobby has instructions that suggest using a plywood ring slightly inset (1") from the front of the fuse. I would then screw the motor using the existing mount to the plywood ring.
Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Frank

The 1.8mm are rated at 25A so no worries there. The wires from the LS and from, say, a Phoenix 10 are small enough to fit into the connectors - so that would be my choice. For applications with 18ga wire or bigger you need to go to 2.5mm.

The plywood ring and radial mount will be fine. Alternatively, can you cut a slot into which to fit a stick to the Shockflyer? then you could use the LS stick mount.

Cheers, Phil
