    My latest Turnigy brushless motor, a 4240, 740 has banana type plugs moulded on to the three leads which connect to the ESC. See picture. The pins of these plugs are 3mm diameter.
    I would like to know what these are. Are they 3mm bullet connectors ? I need to know what they are so I can buy the other half, otherwise I will be snipping them off and using a Wago connector block instead.
    Thanks for your help ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Thanks for your reply CB90.
    After carefully measuring the diameter of the plugs again I ordered a number of the 3.5mm size. Thankfully this proved to be correct, and I have now soldered the females onto the ESC leads. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Do not snip them. Those are common connectors for electric motors and ESCs.

    If your ESC does not have those connectors, you can purchase them online for a set.


    My opinion.

    Alternatively you could remove the heat shrink on the plugs, de-solder the plugs from the leads and then re-solder the leads direct to the esc leads making sure to slip 3 new bits of heat shrink over the joins. I have often done that on my planes. If the motor spins the wrong way then de-solder two joints and swap them over. Takes longer to write than actually do ๐Ÿ˜Š
