Great episode Brothers. Who doesn't like to see where they can save a buck or several?
Nice link to the soldering. Recommend cleaning solder joint with alcohol and an acid brush to remove flux residue which is corrosive.
Also, it's the female connector that goes to the battery. You determine connector gender by the pin, not the plastic.
I used to be an EC3 fan but since HK started shipping Lipo's with XT60's my son and I have switched and don't regret it. I kinda wished I could have just used the same pins without resoldering since they are the same bullet connectors.
